For today's template, I decided to do a design with circles. Working with circles is hard for me for some reason. Weird, I know. Here is an example I made using today's free template:
|I used Wild Blueberry Ink's Forecast kit found HERE|
Here is today's template and you can download it HERE (link expires on Jan 7, 2011):
1. White Space: White space is the area(s) of a layout that is has no text or graphics. It gives the viewer's eye a chance to rest. Folks, it doesn't have to be white in color to be considered white space! :)
2. Proximity: The photo and papers are spatially connected to each other because of their proximity. The core of the layout looks like one grouping because of the close spacing of the circles, photos and title. This placements gives a unified look to the layout, and unity creates a feeling of wholeness.
3. Color: I picked three colors to use: yellow, gray and blue-green. I applied the color "rule" 1 gallon (gray), one pint (blue-green) and 1 cup (yellow).
