Here are a few more examples of a rectangle on a square...
I layered several borders to divide my 12x12 background into two rectangles, then placed my design on the larger side. It's my way of creating something close to an 8.5x11 canvas.
Here my rectangle is formed by stacking two 4x6 photos vertically. The title, journaling and some embellishments spill over onto the 12x12 background.
In this example, the rectangle runs right to the edge of the page. The photos and patterned paper are placed horizontally. A few embellishments sneak off the rectangle, and one cluster placed in the upper LH corner adds interest.
One final example that I love. In the photo is my grandfather, holding his beloved rhubarb.
As usual, I have a Pinterest board with even more examples of this Go To Design. Besides the usual 12x12 pages, it's where I pin 8.5x11 layouts. They are perfect for rectangular inspiration!
