Over on Flourishes newsletter today I am talking about White Space and how NOT to be afraid of it. I use a lot of white paper in my cards, I LOVE a lot of white clean space on my cards. It might be my OCD coming out onto cards, haha... I just think the clean and simple look sometimes is what makes the card pop. I have a few ways that I use white space so I will show you the two common ways I use it.
Below here is the single layer of white space I use a lot. I have a little color with the ribbon and paper. My Dove and Holly is the focal point and I added a little bit of sparkle to the leaves. Very simple.
Below here is what I call my layered white space. I have used the set A year of Flowers calendar set 2. I still have a lot of white space but I broke it up into two layers, and see it still looks so clean and fresh. I added a little white crochet ribbon and pearls to top it off.
See white space is nothing to be afraid of, so give it a try! You might not go back. hee hee Check out what the girls came up with for their version of White Space also:
