Printing on Pattern Paper

For our Project Runway challenge at TallyScrapper this week, we had to design a layout based off of this Rolling Stones Cover album.

Which inspired this layout from me
Have you ever tried printing your photos out on Pattern Paper?

 To make this layout, I selected several photos and re-sized them in Photoshop to 2x3 and 3x2 inches, with the exception of the upper right photo which is 4x6. When resizing, make sure your resolution is at 300.
After you have re-sized all of your photos, open a new canvas 12 x 12, transparent background, resolution 300.

Drag all your photos onto the new blank canvas. Whenever you drag a new photo over, it puts the photo on its own layer, so you can arrange them however you wish.

Once I had all my photos on the new canvas, I merged all visible, then turned them all black and white.

I then inserted my pattern paper into my printer, and printed the photo collage from Photoshop.
Here's the original Pink Paislee Pattern Paper I placed in the printer.
and here is my layout again.
I then decided I wanted a couple of the photos in color, so I printed the photos out in color and popped them  up with pop dots.
I love the look, don't you?
This layout came together in about 30 minutes start to finish.. the hard part was deciding which pictures to print. :)
