i decided to veer a tad from my normal design style/process.
just to play a little and see what happened...
i knew i wanted to experiment with a geometric shape of some sort so i started with the idea of 1" squares of randomly placed patterned papers.
then i knew i wanted to add this badge by Marcy Penner and began incorporating circles as well.
gasp!! i thought, am i breaking some geometric design rule?!! ha! not really ;)
this was my first take on the layout. i struggled a bit with placement.
and this was the final layout. i removed the other 2 circles and it felt "good"
and just to keep it real...
i've learned to photograph around the "mess" on my desk and even incorporate it into my photos for added interest!! lol! ;)
straying a bit helped me to stretch my creativity.
have a great weekend, all!!! :)
