Scrapbooking Tips by Silke - Layout Focus

Did you see Diane's post yesterday? If you want to create eye catching layouts, you need to use this Rule of Thirds. All my layouts I check with this rule. You can break it, and or use different rules, but always check if your layout looks great! Make it small in the preview, and look from a distance to see if it has any visual impact.

1. The Rule of Thirds
The rule of thirds creates a simple guide for placing your focal points.
Simply place your focal point of your layouts in one of the intersections of the horizontal and vertical lines.
To lead your viewer to your secondary focus choose another intersection.

1- Start a layout

first of all, choose your focal element and to place it in the intersection. This will lead the viewers eye to your primary focal point.I put the head of the boy in one of the 4 intersections. That will be my primary focal point!
To lead your viewer to a secondary focus, choose another intersection.
Flower clusters can also be considered to place on these points!

2- As my secondary focus I choose the bird with the flower cluster. The word art and the tag are on the other two focal points! Ready!
