FAST + FABULOUS FRIDAY NO. 30

FATHER'S DAY POCKET PAGE LAYOUT 

THIS WEEK I WANTED TO GET MY RECENT HOLIDAY, FATHER'S DAY - IN THE BOOKS! I DIDN'T HAVE A TON OF TIME BUT BY STICKING TO A COLOR PALETTE, AND WORKING INTELLIGENTLY WITH BALANCED TRANSPARENCY, I WAS ABLE TO COMPLETE THIS SPREAD IN NO TIME!

TIME SAVING TIP NO. 1

REPLICATE SHAPES 

WHEN I FINISHED THE YELLOW DIAGONAL PATTERN OVERLAY, I WAS STUCK ON WHAT TO DO ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE SPREAD, BUT BY REPLICATING THE SAME DIAGONAL AND INSERTING A  CONFETTI POCKET - I WAS ABLE TO QUICKLY AND EFFECTIVELY COMPLETE BOTH POCKETS! WHEN YOU'RE IN A CRUNCH, DON'T BE AFRAID TO USE WHAT YOU'VE MADE - OFTENTIMES IT WILL HELP ADD BALANCE AND UNITY TO THE SPREAD!

TIME SAVING TIP NO. 2

TRANSPARENCY, TRANSPARENCY, TRANSPARENCY!

I CAN'T SAY THIS ONE ENOUGH. IF YOU CORRECTLY USE TRANSPARENCY IN A POCKET PAGE SPREAD, IT ELIMINATES A LOT OF THE WORK WHILE CREATING INTERESTING NEGATIVE SPACE. I KEPT A BALANCE OF THE TRANSPARENCY THROUGHOUT THIS SPREAD BY GROUNDING THE SPACE WITH MY 4X6 IMAGE SPREAD THROUGH THE CENTER WITH TRANSPARENCY ON EITHER SIDE. I ALSO USED SMALL ACCENTS BELOW WITH THE OVER-HANING 'MY FATHER' ALPHA, AND THE CONFETTI POCKET ON THE LEFT. DON'T BE AFRAID TO LET THAT PLASTIC SHINE!

EMBELLISH SPARINGLY

DON'T LET A LITTLE WHITE SPACE SCARE YOU OFF! IT CAN ACTUALLY ENHANCE YOUR SPREAD (MUCH LIKE TRANSPARENCY). I SCATTERED A COUPLE GOLD STARS (WHICH I BALANCED ON THE TEAL TAG) AND LET THE CARD REST. SOMETIMES SPARINGLY EMBELLISHING LEAVES ROOM FOR YOUR EYE TO FOCUS ON WHAT'S IMPORTANT - THE PICTURES AND THE MEMORIES! I LOVE HOW THE TRAIL OF STARS LEADS RIGHT TO MY IMAGE AND HELPS CREATE MOVEMENT AROUND THE PAGE WHICH IS VERY EFFECTIVE!
