This month, Bo Bunny has sent the designers on a Field Trip each Friday. What is a Field Trip? Well, it's scrapping or altering outside of your comfort zone. We have been challenged to try things that we don't normally do. I must admit that I had a hard time with this assignment. :)
I decided to concentrate on design for this week. I tend to start out with my photo in, or close to, the center of my pages. I purposely chose to start with my photo in the upper right corner. I also much admire the scrapbookers who rock the negative space. I tried to keep myself from filling in every blank space on my layout.
Sugar and Spice
Here is what I came up with.
As you can see, I didn't leave a lot of negative space, but I left more that what I usually do, so I'm considering it a LOT! lol The design definitely is not my normal feel, but I ended up pretty happy with the overall page.
Of course, it is my page, so a few things that I 'always' do still showed up on the page. I don't think that stretching yourself means that you have to move completely away from your personal touches. So, I almost always add a bow or ribbon and I still did!
I really liked how changing up my design allowed me to play with the embellishments a bit differently than usual.
I made a journaling card to tuck under the photo here. Working with the picture placement here, I found that the balance of the layout worked a bit differently. The journal card served dual purposes. I can journal on the card, but it also gave this area of the page some weight.
I would love to see pages that you have done that were outside of your norm! If you link them here, I'll drop by to take a peek!

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
