2. Rotate Your Frames

Change the orientation and placement of the frames in the Artsy Layered Template.

  • You can Rotate the frames by 90 degrees in Artsy Layered Template No 218 to better suit the Orientation of your photos.
  • Stamp Place stitching elements from Looped UrbanThreadz No 1 behind each frame to add visual interest to your photo artistry layout design.
  • Notice how the frames Contain the edges and almost ‘frames’ the blended photo in the digital scrapbooking page.

3. Opt For Contrast

Use opposing shades of color in your photo artistry and digital scrapbooking to yield contrast.

  • The dark background from ArtPlay Palette Aspera creates Contrast against the opposing light colors in the Focal Photo.
  • Notice also how the white Splatter paint elements and Stitching Attracts the Viewer’s Eye in this digital scrapbooking page.
  • Contrast comes from using colors with opposing Values.
