Design Principles in Scrapbooking- Part 1 - Balance

For my reveal at A Cherry on Top this month, I decided to do something a little different. I researched the classic design principle of balance and applied it to scrapbook pages, including a sketch.

From the article:
"The purpose of balance is to create a visual display that is pleasing to the eye, so you may find that a lot of these concepts are things that you have noticed naturally already. It helps though, to know what the concepts are, so that when you are looking at an unfinished page and thinking, “something seems off; this needs something, but what?”, you can review the design concepts and they will help you figure out what is missing, or off."

Here is one of the pages that I created for this reveal - showing symmetrical balance.

Head over to A Cherry on Top and check out the rest of the article. These principles are good for all of us to keep in mind.
