This is the layout I made using the template:
|I used Felicity by Wild Blueberry Ink found HERE|
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 blocks, photo and title. This placements gives a unified look to the layout, and unity creates a feeling of wholeness.
3. Repetition: I repeated the multiple colors in a variety of textures, but be careful not to overuse repetition as it can get boring quickly!
4. Visual Triangle: (the color blue) Placing items on my scrapbook page in a triangle allows the viewer's eyes to see the page as a whole rather than being distracted by one or two pieces on the page. A visual triangle helps the viewer's eye to travel around the page. A visual triangle can be created on a scrapbook layout using photos, embellishments, or event text such as your title, date, and journaling.
