You start with a solid base in the middle, a basic square or rectangle, and build out from there. After establishing a focus in the center, it's easy to add different elements to fill in the page. In this example, I chose circles, a scalloped border and buttons to contrast with the center rectangles. A clean and simple design, yet very colorful.
Here I added banners to extend out from my center square. The title and small embellishment group in the upper RH are allowed to pull away from the center, creating added interest. Because this is supposed to be a relaxing page, there's plenty of white space allowing the eye to rest on the focal point photo.

The Centered Design works especially well with just a few photos, or several smaller photos. Matting in the center provides the needed visual weight. As always, I have many more examples pinned on this board. Are you a centered scrapper?
