Today's Tip - Scrapbook Layout Tips - Final Thoughts

A few final thoughts to help you come up with ideas for scrapbooking pages:
  • Remember the "Golden Ratio" - 1, 3, or 5 of the same item will typically have a more finished look.
  • When using metals, keep them matched.  Use all gold, all silver, or all brass, rather than mixing.
  • Be aware of the alignment and placement of all the titems on your page.  Nothing should be placed arbitrarily.  Every element should have a visual connection with something else on the page.
  • Items relating to each other should be grouped close together.  When several items are in close proximity to each other, they become one visual unit, rather than several separate units.
These are some great starter tips for layout composition.  As you keep these in mind, remember also that there are exceptions to every rule, and your photos and page elements will help you determine what composition is best for you and your page.
