Day 3 Class: Compass & Navigation

by Camp Counselor Lori Anderson

 

Line up elements across your page

Are you the camper who had a list of items to pack and bring to camp weeks before your departure date? If you are, this tip may be one you go to again and again when you design a page. Lining up elements on a page brings a crisp, clean elegance to a page and is always a crowd pleaser. Kelly Purkey lined up her photos in a progression, and topped off her design with a beautiful focal photo on the right side of her layout. Simple to create and so beautiful!

 

Happy Birthday by Kelly Purkey

 

 

Snack Break

Even if you aren't the "line 'em up" type, you're sure to be inspired by this week's Tuesday Tutorial over at CK Contributing Editor Ali Edward's blog. Cathy Zielske is her guest blogger and has lots of fun tips about designing on a grid (love those lines!). Don't forget to watch Cathy's tutorial on creating a 12-photo grid using Photoshop Elements (you can also download a PDF document so you can keep the instructions in your camp file!).
