Card Project - Bohemian

The Bohemian trend incorporates several tried-and-true techniques like sanding and inking-but layering is also a key part of the trend. Like the Bohemian fashion trend of layered clothing and mixed patterns, Bohemian paper crafting features layers of designs combined with an eclectic mix of patterns, from dots and stripes to swirls.
