How I Recently Refined My Style

To me, finding your style means finding you.

In many ways it means moving closer to visually representing aspects of your self.

Over the past year or so I had a realization about something I’ve loved since I was a little girl. It has to do with color.

And that color realization suddenly led to me my style adjustment. I love the harmony of analogous color schemes, and some of my most favorite layouts are the ones I’ve made with more harmony than contrast.

So while I don’t always stick to that, since some of my stories definitely call for more energy, and by extension, contrast, I have been using the pillar design principle of harmony as much as my story will permit.

And I LOVE it!!

Want to learn more about this principle and how to make it work for you?

I decided to make this the topic of my class presentation at True Scrap, the online scrapbooking event that is happening THIS WEEKEND!

At True Scrap there will be eight classes from awesome teachers like Lisa Bearnson — an original mover of our modern scrapbook industry, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, Kathy Cano-Murillo, the well-known, “Crafty Chica.”

There will also be Q&A sessions, prizes, chatting with scrapbookers around the world, and lots of fun!

So back to my new favorite design principle, HARMONY, and my class…

In “Scrapbookers, Unite!” we will learn to use harmony and contrast to create unity. I’ll walk you through a scrapbook layout that is lacking in harmony and unity, and then we’ll re-create the original concept with two new pages that fix the problem and create a feeling of harmony and that sense of being satisfyingly finished.

Here are some sneak peeks of the new layouts I make in the class:

    That roses cut file is amazing – where did you find it?

  • Isn’t it?! I love it! I got it in the Silhouette store. It’s actually a cut file for a card and I bought it simply for that rose edge, which is the only part I’ve used, at least so far. It’s by Nic Squirrel and it’s called Roses Lace Edged 7×5 Card.
