Thursday Opposites challenge


Thursday Opposites challenge

This is Jan-Hendrik and Janelle my DGD. Her first boyfriend. Supplies in EXIF. My layout seems a bit off balance. Any suggestions?



    I love the colours in that kit, and they suit your photos so well. After reading your notes, I've been looking at your layout for a good ten minutes, and I'm not sure what's off. For me, the circular photo draws my eye, and the larger photo kind of blends into the background.
    Great photos and I love the bright and happy colors. I also like the stars and the way your paper strips and ribbon/string anchor the larger photo. I think it looks fine, Belle. No suggestions for changes; sorry. Though, you could try Valerie's suggestion and see what you think. PS - He's very cute!
    So fun, Belle. Love the casual pics. Love the colors (you know I LOVE this collection!). I wonder if the photos are competing with each other because they are both larger. Perhaps making the circle photo smaller but leaving it up in that upper right side of the rectangle. It will still have weight because it's a close-up. Just my thought. I'm so glad you joined the challenge today!
    Very cute! I like the playfulness the two show in the rectangular photo. All the different textures and layers are great, too.
    Very nice, i think your layout looks great as it is! (Your granddaughter has good taste, hehe!)

    One thing i would like to try is to visually separate the two photos, perhaps by moving the text 'My One True Love' to wrap around the bottom of the circular photo rather than the top, making the top half of the text sit ON your circle and the bottom half on your rectangular photo. You'll probably need to change the colour of the text. And i agree with making the circle a little bit smaller. (i'm no graphic design expert and i'm just imagining the possibilities, so the whole thing might end up looking horrible... apologies in advance if so! Like i said, your original looks great as it is!)
    I love this layout as it is! I think it is wonderful!
