Welcome to the Back to Basics Blog Hop!
This month the brilliant DT from Mixed Media Place has teamed up with Scrap365 and their brilliant magazine DT.
Finn has very kindly donated a marvellous prize to either add to your stash or to get you started.
All you need to do to be in with a shot of the prize is follow Scrap365 and Mixed Media Place blogs. Like us both on Facebook and leave a message on the Scrap365 blog telling us which layout principle you are going to try! We would love to see your take on the Principles so be sure to upload them to the Scrap365 Facebook page :)
Our January Blog Hop is all about layout principles. Ali found this fabulous prompt on Pinterest, courtesy of SuzyQ Scraps http://suzyqscraps.com/. It really sums up the beginnings of every layout.
So come with us and see how this sketch turns into some glorious pieces of art :)
Before you visit Tusia's blog I would like to show you my page, made after principle number 4.
Picture and text is in the center of the page and where the picture is above the text/title. I guess the golden section comes in handy to this kind of design. Make sure the text stays inside the with of the image. It is also important to make sure the square you decide to fill with design has its centre a tiny bit above the middle line of the background paper. That way the design will have the correct golden section. When I make pages with this in mind, I do like to use lots of layers to make the page interesting. It is important to not put all the paper directly above each other, but put them slightly to one side. When you put the picture on top, make sure it is centre to the design square and background paper. The picture is my son having a coffee break while filling the garage with firewood.
I found the perfect pattern paper with woodgrain for the theme.
I've used various layers of papers and on top added some heavy gesso.
When Gesso was dry I added some splashes with orange watercolor
Finally adding the picture and embellishment like arrow, stars, clock, picture frame and title.
Thank you for looking and of you go to Tusia
