CK Sketch Variations: March/April 2011
Use this issue's sketch to easily fit five standard-size photos on your scrapbook layout. Leave even margins around the perimeter of your layout to frame your photo grouping.
Or try two variations to give you more ideas on how evenly space your photos with equal margins between them, to give your layout a delightfully orderly and uncluttered look.
Spring Training by Paula Gilarde. Digital Supplies: Software: Adobe; Patterned paper, baseball accent, circle accent, and transparency: Anna Aspnes; Chipboard, frames, and sticky notes: Katie Pertiet; Word art: Ali Edwards; Font: Luna.
Even it up: Create a fun, spontaneous look on your layout by allowing accents to break out of a very structured design. On Paula Gilarde's layout, observe how the stacked, framed photo overlaps neighboring photos and the circle accents cross over into the margins.
Spring Is in the Air by Smitha Katti. Photography by Nachiket Katti. Digital Supplies: Software: Adobe; Papers: Crystal Wilkerson and Katie Pertiet; Ribbon: Shabby Princess; Stitching: Shabby Princess and kevinandamanda.com; Buttons: Crystal Wilkerson; Fonts: Pea Jack & Jane and Pea Jokilyn Doodles.
Even it up: Give your layout an asymmetrical twist by making the outer margins uneven, like Smitha Katti did on her layout. Notice how the smaller top margin lifts the position of the photo grouping, giving the layout an optimistic feel. Keep even margins between photos and other elements to maintain the balance of the layout.
