White Space Extravaganza


Since the beginning of my scrapbooking days I’ve been more or less loyal to keeping my layouts 8x8 inches. I had a short love affair with the 8x10 but since I couldn’t find anywhere to have them printed the fling remained short and sweet.

However after I found the Sunday Postcard Challenge blog I’ve felt myself moving further and further away from the traditional 8x8. Preparing my postcards for the blog I came to like the way a smaller size with a plain white background looked. Somehow it made the art itself stand out more.

I’ve been a fan of white space layouts in scrapbooking for a long time and this might just be seen as white space extravaganza. It might seem like I’m setting smaller boundaries for myself by choosing a smaller canvas but I feel my imagination and creativity has hungered for this change.

It seems I've been focusing a lot on the classics lately. Pride & Prejudice above, Les Miserable (for those of you who have seen the movie you’ll probably get the hint of it). I’ve been rereading my Robert Frost & William Blake, seeking inspiration from long lost friends. I’m still dedicated to memory keeping but this, these pieces, are what feeds my urge to create these days. To finish where I started with a bit of Pride & Prejudice here’s my card for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge, rewriting one of the most known first sentences of a book in the world. The prompt this week was to use tape.
