I am incredibly honoured to be a part of the Get It Scrapped Creative Team for another year. I have learned so much through the Masterful Scrapbook Designs Issues, the daily inspirational blog posts and the ScrapBook Coach Classes. I love hearing the teachers explain their processes and how and why to add that little something extra to my layouts.
It is no secret that I love large photos on my layouts, with journaling and only a little white space, however this article, Go off the edge with clusters and bits encouraged me to try something a little different. Smaller photos, more white space and additional layers to my minimalistic clusters. I am always up for a challenge, something that stretches me and helps me grow and improve.
Noted: Breaking canvas edges adds a tension.
I chose to do this with both sets of my photo clusters. The photos and their matting bleed off of the canvas. The flowers are also half featured, allowing the reader's brain to imagine the rest of their shapes. I created a visual triangle of pink items (button, plastic flower and small flower) and a separate one of the turquoise. (plastic flower, bird and small flower) Things appear attached by stitching staples, photo anchors and buttons. I chose a yellow paper for my back ground paper as it is a happy colour. The addition of the bird flying free is a symbol of the freedom I feel escaping the humdrum and chores at home to eat out with a friend while the children are at school.
