i recently found some extra pictures in a drawer, you know, the picture you print before you get the perfect print. well, i stuck most of them in my “to be scrapped” file, but left out this one to make a simple collage style page.
this picture is of a sunset from the porch of my house. i took it many years ago with a standard point and shoot digital camera. i can’t quite remember if i took the picture right before a storm, or right after a storm, so the title may not be quite accurate, but it made for a nice page layout.
i’ve been playing around with negative space quite a lot. i think when used correctly it really does a nice job of directing the focus of the eye and making the layout more interesting. also, in case you couldn’t tell, i have a tendency to use multiples as an element, in the form of 3’s. 3 buttons, 3 butterflies, 3 circles, 3 x’s, etc. hope you enjoyed checking it out, let me know if you have any questions! maybe one day i’ll post a video of my layout process. hmmm… something to think about.
