Apologies for the lack of posts again this week – my new computer still has not arrived! Since hubby is off-roading today, I am using his to computer to at least get a creative prompt posted! Keep your fingers crossed that my computer comes soon!
This week’s creative prompt is really about “tweaking” – but I like the title of “Block and Slide” better!
Most of us have a default scrapbook style or preference that we tend to fall back on, and sometimes we just need to tweak it – add or change a little something – to make our layouts more interesting. I speak from experience! This is what happened to me when I was working on some Easter layouts. After I had selected papers etc., I found myself arranging the photos in the same old way. I tend to be very linear in my scrapbooking, and rely on color blocking a lot with photos and patterned paper. This is what I initially started with…
(Sorry about the color…it seems blue-ish, but the background paper is actually white!)
Ok, but pretty same-old-same-old for me. Then I remembered a layout I had seen where the photos were tightly blocked and aligned with the edge of the 12 x 12 paper (cannot find or remember the source). I started rearranging my photos and papers and came up with this. The finished layout is still “me”, but more visually pleasing to the eye and more interesting. Much better!
Have a great week!
