Space. I really do. I think it gives my eye a little rest and even some direction as to where my focus needs to be. I think that my favorite designers have mastered the ability to use White Space in their designs. They are the designers who seem to create the simplest WOW designs. The designs seem to often have their focal image/sentiment to the side... rarely center focused.
There are a few things that I've noticed with these designers that I am seeking to become better at. They seem to master the use of color. They make projects interesting with that and simple details.
Now... I'm not saying that this card is a fantastic use of white space... but it's a start. :)
I used some Paper Smoches stamps, SUPER cute images and Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink. Now...
I'm not sure if it's that the clear sets I have are just prone to this but man... this ink does stain my images. I really love the color and coverage but am not totally sure how I feel about the staining. I think that my favorite Clearsnap ink is still Vivid. (I just can’t seem to figure out where I put my stash of those.) As I've been purging older products from my studio I've rediscovered some of my old favorites that I just couldn't bear to part with...and I found my big box of ink pads. It's been fun getting re-acquainted with some "old friends"! LOL!
Well, I'm not sure I will have much to post this week. It's the last week of school and on top of it I've headed out of town with my hubby for the last few days too. Silly snow days made it a little complicated by extending school. But... I enjoy spending time with Chris. While he is in the conference part of the trip, working and all, I'll get a good shot of Vitamin D! We have had SUCH a cloudy and rainy spring. I am SO ready! I can usually only enjoy about 2 days away from my girls... so this is a perfect little break! If you are ever in Washington and want an incredible place to just "be"... this is it! (Sun Mountain Lodge) Tonight we even get to take wagons and horses out to a cowboy dinner! But yes... I'm already missing my girls, and we just left yesterday! LOL!
Thanks for poppying by, friends!
