Good Eats 12×12 Layout by Francine, September Sweet Elegance Kit Project Idea
At the top of this 12×12 layout entitled Good Eats Francine simply journaled, “When I eat good food like this I am in seventh heaven.” My immediate thought was, “ME TOO!”
And I’ll have to take this idea of scrapping some Good Eats and make some use of it. Such a great idea. If Good Eats can bring a smile at the dinner table…why not in the scrapbook as well?
One of my favorite things about Francine’s style is what would we used to call the “white space” when referring to a book jacket design (before my days at Little Black Dress Kit Club). Basically, the idea is that if the entire visual space is covered in pattern or text most people get overwhelmed. They don’t know where to look and they end up perceiving the overall visual effect as jumbled. I always think back to days when those discussions came up at work when I see Francine’s projects because they NEVER have3 the problem. She’s got a talent for knowning how much is enough. And more than that…how much is PERFECT.
Francine also has a great talent for adding depth to her page. Note the additions to the right and left side of her photo montage. We also love the way she worked in a “banner” but made it the background for her title rather than keeping everything so uniform as many are tempted to do when they incorporate banner style embellishments.
Other elements from the September kit that Francine used to create this project include: vintage buttons, pink/white trim, Prima marketing flowers, Glitz Design clear stamp, etc.
That’s just one of Francine’s layouts this month. Watch for more soon!
