The Gallery Spotlight is on LILJATR

Hello Everyone!

Robin here to share with you a lovely layout I spotted in the gallery this morning – Standout by liljatr.  I love the use of white space in this layout, and the scrapped photo is adorable.  The kit used for this gorgeous piece of work is Chunlin’s A Little Weird.  Beautiful work, liljatr!

Just a Tip….

I have been a part of the digiscrap online world for about 7 and 1/2 years now.  Over those years I’ve seen many different fads, trends, and more come and go.  What has stayed constant has been our common desire to tell our stories.  There’s a style out there for everyone.  Some of us like trying out different styles from time to time, while others of us like to stay true to one style and perfect it.  I fall into the first category.  Over the years I’ve tried a bit of this and a bit of that and have enjoyed the ride.  I have to admit though, when I look back at my first year of layouts I cringe a bit but I still love the stories that they tell. 

About a month ago I was asked to stay on as a blogger for With Love Studio but in a slightly different role than before.  I have been tasked with what are lovingly referred to as “random” posts.  LOL  I think it suits me pretty well since I am a bit “random” myself.  What I’m going to try to do over the next few weeks/months is add a “tips” post here and there  I hope that you’ll find something during this journey that will help you find your own scrapping style/focus.

On to today’s tip!!!

Susan’s Random Scrap Tip #1

Choose a focal-point photo. This photo should draw your attention first.  Use other photos to enhance the telling of your story. Think of them as pairing a wonderful pair of shoes, a gorgeous pair of earrings, and a necklace with a favorite blouse.  The shoes, earrings, and necklace enhance the blouse to create a finished look.  These extra photos will make the story seem more complete and easier to understand. We read from left to right so place your focal-point photo in the upper left hand corner and let the other photos and embellishments flow from there.

Here are a few layouts from the With Love Studio Gallery that caught my eye as I thought about today’s tip!

Use or Lose It Challenge Focus

Last week I asked you to think about your “focus” when you scrap.  It seemed fitting that I would focus on a particular challenge today!  This month’s Use It or Lose It Challenge has me blown away with the gorgeous layouts that have been created not to mention the FABULOUS full kit that you will get from our wonderful designer, Chunlin Designs, just for participating.

What is the Use It or Lose It Challenge?  Well, you take the pieces shared in the challenge and you make a layout using every piece.  You can’t leave anything out but you may duplicate what is there.  If you use every single piece in the mini-kit then you earn the full kit!

Here is the preview of the mini-kit from Chunlin Designs (download link is in the forum thread).

Focus: What’s Yours

Focus: noun – 1. The center of interest or activity.  2. The state or quality of having or producing clear visual definition.  What’s your focus when you are creating a layout?  For some it may be the photo.  I see lots of layouts with just a photo or multiple photos and they are beautiful creations artistically speaking.  I know I’ve made some of those (okay a lot of those over the years) but that’s not the focus that I started out with when I began my journey into digital scrapbooking.  I bet that’s not the focus that you had either.  My focus was to tell the stories behind the photos so when my children looked at the layouts and books as they got over the story would be there for them.  I have tons of photos from my parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents that I know nothing about the story other than the name on the back of the photo.  Sometimes not even that survived over the course of time as hands caressed the photos and wore the writing off.

So, that brings me to the reason behind today’s post.  I want you to think about your focus when you sit down to scrapbook.  There’s absolutely nothing wrong with making a layout with just photos and trying out different styles.  That’s how we grow in our own skills and let’s face it, it’s fun and a great creative stress relief!  If that’s your focus then create away and set your artistic soul soaring!  If your focus is to tell the story behind the photos or to save a particular memory, where will you start?

I took a stroll (well a scroll) through our gallery here at With Love Studio and I found some layouts that I feel may help those of you who want to really tell your story.

This week I challenge you to find your focus.  Upload your layout to the gallery and link us up here in the comments.  Tell me what your focus was, whether is was to work on a special artistic effect, try a new skill, relieve some creative tension, or tell a specific story.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
