For today's free template, I have taken one of the pages that I designed for the new Perfect Moments quick page book I created with Wild Blueberry Ink available at Owl Tree Studio, and I turned it into a template for you:

Now, why does this layout work?
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 flower petals/photos, journaling, and title. This placements gives a unified look to the layout, and unity creates a feeling of wholeness.
3. Balance: This layout is symmetrically balanced. If we were to divide this layout vertically or horizontally down the middle, we would find the same amount of visual weight on one side as we do the other.
