Do you struggle with where to put embellishments?
It can be easy to know where to place embellishments if you use them to create a visual path.
A visual path is a path the eye will take around a layout — the purposes being to get people to look where you want them to look, but more importantly, to keep the eye engaged so they look longer.
Embellishments are like milestones or landmarks in the path. They flag the eye’s attention. You can set them up so that one embellishment will send the viewer on to the next one, and so on. By the time the eye processes the last one, that first one is calling again, and the viewer will continue to view the page, noticing and enjoying more details.
Current trends in our culture have brought us new trends in visual paths that we’re seeing in a lot of scrapbook layouts. They are casual, playful, and energetic!
I share some of these trendy visual paths and show you different ways to make them in this week’s Paperclipping video tutorial where I assemble four different layouts!
