Extreme White Space!

It's time for another Crafty Challenge over on the Two Scrapbook Friends Forum, and Yours Truly is here to deliver the goods.

For today's challenge, instead of using a particular technique or embellishment, I thought we'd change things up a little and try a particular style of scrapbooking.

Some may call it minimalist, but I see quite a lot of pages in this style throughout magazines and the Internet, that contain quite a large amount of detail and embellishments, so I prefer to think of it as 'Extreme White Space'!

I'm sure you've seen layouts that showcase one small photograph, with a variety of techniques or embellishments condensed into one small area of a 12" by 12" page?

Well that's what I'm referring to......they don't call it a Crafty 'Challenge' for nothing right?

It's not a style I usually employ as the urge to add more most often wins, but I was up for the challenge so here's my page.




I realize I may have took liberties just a little, as my patterned paper has some detailing of it's own in the top right corner, but I guess I had to get my fix of adding more somehow!

Don't be put off this challenge by thinking you can't go to town on one of these pages, as you can still cram quite a lot of detail on there......just into a smaller area.





I kept things fairly simple on my layout, and probably could have added more, but even on here there are 12 different techniques/embellishments in that one small space.






I hope you'll give this one a try and have some fun with it as I surprisingly did!
I'd also love to see your creations so don't forget to upload them to the Gallery and Forum.....there are buttons to be gained of course.

See you next time,

Beautiful Jayne!

I think this is a technique some of us have a really hard time doing, but it is beautiful...and I must try it. It really shows off the wonderful photo of your daughter without any distractions by embellishments...great job!!!

Absolutely beautiful Jayne! I love this style and think it looks so chic and contemporary.
