I signed up for Jana Morton's Blending class and actually made a start with this layout. I began with a freebie template by Li (that will be a Tuesday Template at ScrapMatters in October) and a kit by Scrapyrus Designs called Beach Treasures. I created a second square layer within the layout - liking the "on a block" look inspired by Debbie Hodge's class, over at Scrapbook Coach. I created tension by allowing some paper strips and elements to escape the constraints of the block. Three clusters create the visual triangle. A foundation of splatter brushes adds an invaluable additional dimension. The metallic elements give much needed visual attachment.
