New insights

I'm really loving the Process class. Just as I thought I enjoyed week 3 about creating layouts the most. There were some really great ideas in there. I've made three more layouts using my new knowledge. This first one was about mixing patterns:

With this second layout I wanted to work with an irregular grid and experiment with balance:

This last one was also about balance, trying to add a large title. I added and removed all kinds of alphas and I just wasn't happy with the way it looked. Finally I just decided that it was good enough. I gave up on perfect! I cut off part of a J to make a comma, and the last E is made up of an F and a Z.

The Process class

I knew Catherine Davis' Process class would be awesome. I signed up right away. This first project is made with the SC Antiquary kit and one of Catherine's class templates.

I hardly ever make 12x12 layouts anymore, but this paper matched the photos so well. I only added a tag and a paper clip from my stash.

This seceond layout was made the featured layout at SC this week. Thank you so much! I used a pin from the class board as inspiration. 

I started by cutting out a larger triangle from the triangle paper and then placed it on top of my photos and handcut around it. The geometry isn't perfect, but perfection is not my thing anyway.I used three different photos. The tags are Bananafish Studio and was in the Salinger addon a while back.
