Scrapping with Multiple Visual Triangles

The Get It Scrapped! assignment: Make a page that incorporates multiple visual triangles. I incorporated visual triangles in five different ways that feature color, pattern, shape and texture. Can you spot them?



There are groups of 
  1. banners 
  2. clouds 
  3. buttons 
  4. layered circles 
  5. embossed white circles 
placed in various visual triangles throughout the layout. Did you find them all? More importantly, do they help your eye move around the page?



I rarely complete a scrapbook page without a visual triangle of some sort. I almost feel like I've done something wrong if I leave it out, but of course, there are plenty of other ways to embellish!



How often do you turn to the visual triangle when you scrapbook: always, usually, seldom, never? If you are scrapping this weekend, perhaps you could challenge yourself to use it in a different way. Let color, pattern, shape and texture be your guide!

  2. I have to agree with Mary Pat. This is my new favorite too. I don't consciously think about visual triangles, but I definitely use them on my pages. :)

  3. Fantastic page - great colors and design. I agree with the others, it is definitely a favorite. Really like the way the clouds stand out and the white tone-on-tone circles subtlety fill the white space. I usually do triangles but not always.

  4. Great page, Sue! It somehow simple yet rich at the same time. I use the visual triangle on almost every layout I do. It's an easy design tool to use once you get the hang of it.

  9. Great layout! I love the bright, fun colors and all the triangles. I will almost always have at least one and many of my layouts have more than one, though I'm not sure I've ever done one with 5! Fun challenge. Have a great weekend! :)

  17. I've become more aware of visual triangles in the page several months and now usually include at least one. I like the textured circles to add a visual triangle & white on white texture.
