How to fill a whole page from edge to edge? Now that was the challenge set by Miss Smith: tell a story, fit in a photo, keep some semblance of the original design, and - the bit that made me quake! - fill the space. Having long wanted to use this picture, and inspired by the wonderful John McWade of the design site Before and After (see his current video), I flipped my original design sideways, split the long horizontal bar in two above and below the photo, and added a story or two - or eight.
I know. I left a bit of white space above the text in the left-hand column. I tried, truly I did: a camera icon, an arrow, a button, a bow, another mini-photo ... just couldn't get it to work. I got visual indigestion. Will it be enough to fill the brief - whaddya think?
Up here, the rumours of more snow are rife, but I'm pretending it's not going to happen. Mum and I have some fabric inks to try out, a bundle of prepared cotton, and a pile of logs for the fire. Hoping you have a lovely weekend - and see you Monday?
