ArtPlay Garland Inspiration
1. Rotate a Template
Turn your template 9o degrees to create a different ‘look’ for your digital scrapbooking page.
- Change the Orientation of the Artsy Layered Template No. 240.
- Rotating the entire template (or some of the layers) 90 Degrees, clockwise or anti-clockwise as preferred.
- Portrait-orientated frames and FotoBlendz clipping masks will become landscape and vice versa – You will just need to Adjust the text and drop shadows accordingly.
2. ‘Sandwich’ Your Focal
Place elements on either side of your photo to lead the eye and create a focal point in your digital scrapbooking page
- Transfers are a great way to achieve this sort of Band Design, but we love Heather’s unconventional approach.
- She has placed MultiMedia Holiday No. 2 elements with the support of Holiday Holiday WordART Mix No. 5 to create a Title Cluster.
- Notice how the distinct shapes create a Visual Triangle with the strong lines of the cart in her photo.
3. Non-Symmetrical Design
Position your photo slightly off-center on your digital scrapbooking page for maximum visual interest.
- We love how Miki has taken the ‘sandwich’ Concept and applied it to the vertical and horizontal axes.
- She has used transfers the anchor the vertical edges, while an embellishment and words create the Same effect on the top/bottom of her digital scrapbooking page.
- Notice how the candy cane in her image Shifts the focal point slightly off-center to yield greater visual interest.
