Focus on the Picture | AWW

I melt when I see this picture.

It makes me feel so lucky and happy.

That means, the focus of this page is the picture.

So how do you do that?

You need to draw the eye to the photo.  This time, I used negative space and the paper in the corners brings your eye to the centre of the page.

Bottom line is don't feel like you have to smash a ton of stuff on a page.

I used the Gold Soiree DSP, a doily (which softens it) and allowed the journalling to be a stamp. 

SCRAPBOOK TIP OF THE DAY: To be lazy you need to be smart.  The title "this day" comes from the Moments Ago brush.  I cut several out in white and keep them in a little dish next to me. When I need them I just colour them with ink!!

Have a fantastic day - head to see Cindy!!!
