This page has 2 photos rather than my normal 1, mainly as I had to include both my children on their stone collecting in beaches - top tip is to take photos so you don't have to bring piles of stones home with you. To focus the eye I put all my detail around the photo, and pile layers behind it and on this one I used texture with some burlap and stapled ribbon. I tried to make my second photo look like it had been torn out a notebook and stuck on with the paper clip and some tissue tape.
Some top tips on using white space
- If you are worried about leaving huge amounts of background bare rather than using a plain sheet of card stock for your photos try a patterned sheet of paper.
- Flicks of shimmer mist or paint help to fill up some of the white space and draw the eye into the photo. You could also use confetti - see my previous post.
- Pile lots of interest around your photo which again draws your eye to photo.
In case you are wondering the papers I used for this page are October Afternoons 9 to 5 collection
