Some rules of thumb when designing a page!

The rule of thirds is applied by aligning a subject with the guide lines and their intersection points, placing the horizon on the top or bottom line, or allowing linear features in the image to flow from section to section. - wikipedia

From images to navigational elements to cards, grouping items in multiples of three can be visually appealing, create organization and enhance overall user flow. -

Placing photos or elements in a triangle allows us to see the layout as a whole instead of being distracted by one photo or element and missing the rest of it. It brings your eye all the way around the layout or directly to the one spot you want your viewers to focus on. - sweetshop design

Birds of a Feather

Dreamin Big is fast approaching as one of my new favourites... which I do have to admit change because Close to My Heart has been dazzling us with so many great things! This was a simple layout using a few different products but what gives it this cool look is the awesome feathers! They were simply cut out of the Cricut then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. 
It was super simple to do just place your feathers on a scrap piece of paper, take your versa mark pad and press on the top of the feathers! I did them at a slant for a little more dramatic look. Then sprinkle your gold embossing powder over top of the versa marked area and heat. Once that was done there was not enough coverage ,for me so I repeated the above steps one more time to give it a nice solid gold look!
