My New Fave Page ...

Ever finish a page & sit back to look at it, then think "I am an awesome scrapbooker, i love this page!" (I hope you do!) I think i like this page so much because it feels different than my pages lately. I remembered that so many of you have asked to know how Tara & I scrapbook, so i thought i would say a few words about this page.

I added lots of dimension with shadows to add a nice interest. Notice how the photos really look like they are popping off the page. I like a page that has a tight grouping & allows for lots of negative space. The frame holds the grouping all together. The cool shadow on the white frame came right with it, Katie did all the work on that one. An idea to try is layering the different colours of stitching like i did with the brown & white ones. Notice the visual triangle with the turquoise flossy stitches, also the red elements. The grouping set to right side takes dominance over the other ones. If all the groupings were really busy then your eye wouldn't know what to focus on.



Thanks for reading through my ramblings ... I will stop now.
