Happy June, fellow scrappers! I am excited to bring you a new challenge this month - the white space challenge. According to Wikipedia, white space is the portion of the page left unmarked and an important element of design which allows the objects within the space to exist at all. White space doesn't actually have to be white. It is sometimes referred to as negative space. For a scrapper, white space might be any color of background paper or even a patterned paper that is simply unmarked by other embellishments. There are many ways to use white space on a layout, but for this challenge we will keep it simple and focus on margins. Your challenge is to create a layout with generous margins. Your composition should be located more or less in the center of the page with lots of white space to draw the eye in. I would like to see at least 2 - 3 inches of lovely, uncluttered space surrounding the elements of your page. I found this wonderful example by Jippo in the gallery. I particularly love it because her white space is patterned paper and so effective at drawing the eye directly to that gorgeous photo. And here is my page, created for this challenge, with more literal "white" space. I hope you have fun with the challenge. Can't wait to see your pages! And as always: Your page must contain at least 75% of Lilypad product. You should post your layout in this thread, as well as in the June Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked! And of course, your page should be posted in the Lilypad Gallery so we can leave lots of love! The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month: 2 challenges = 10% off 4 challenges = 20% off 6 challenges = 30% off If you complete all 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a guest spot on the Lilypad Creative Team! The first six challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the seventh challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).
