MAKE IT BIG!
One of the challenges in our forum that I particularly love is the Make it Big Challenge hosted by one of our designers, Loucee. Each month she asks participants to feature something on their page and make it BIG. It might be the title, or a word, or a photo. It is very much the opposite concept to the minimalist ‘white space’ pages and I’m sure it can be challenging for some of us. Some photos are just so good that they should be the star of the page, so make the viewer sit up and take notice and make them large! Sometimes a photo is enhanced by the use of a frame, but there are times when a frame might well detract from the central focus of the page – the photo.
This beautiful page by Rae Lynn was created using BooLand Designs’ beautiful new kit, SOLACE. It features quite a large photo with an equally large frame. I think in this case the frame with the netting, fish, shells etc. enhances the nautical theme of the page. If you need some large elements for your page, the Solace kit has plenty of those and they are beauties! You can always reduce the size of a large element, but it never works too well trying to enlarge smaller elements. There is usually a loss of clarity that looks particularly bad if you are printing your page.
I’ve scrap-lifted this lovely page from dillydoodles to make a quick page for you. You can download this quick page (minus the photo of course) which I’ve created using the Solace kit. The photo pretty much dominates the page and doesn’t have a frame. I love this particular photo as it has sentimental value for my family, so I wanted the photo to shine without too much distraction.
