Use White-Space Photos to Balance Busy Scrapbook Pages

If you like to use bold papers or many embellishments on your layouts, then photos with white space will give the eye a resting space on your designs. So while taking close-up shots of your subjects can lead to interesting, character-filled photos, be sure to take some photographs with built-in white space as well-in case you need them to balance a layout.

It Always Makes Me Wonder by Megan Klauer, as seen in the January 2011 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.

For example, in Megan Klauer's layout, the white space in the photo adds the sense of calm and quiet inferred from country living that her layout is about-a calm, restful feeling that wouldn't necessarily have been created with the bright, fun accents Megan used.

You can also utilize white space in the actual design of your layouts. See several examples in this month's sketch column.
