This was a slightly challenging layout as I originally had a lot of white space at the top. White space can be important in a layout, but not if it makes the layout look too sparse. I will make adjustments to this layout in the future as the picture on the left side should be a 5x7 and of course I need to journal on the piece of cardstock on the right. This layout can also be flipped so that the yellow is green instead. It depends on the pictures used.
The technique we will be using in class will be stamp kissing. That is when you take a solid stamp and kiss it onto a patterned stamp to give the image texture.
