If you tuned in last week, you may have stumbled across this post. It is full of inspiration for all of those polaroids that you’ve been creating! Today I want to focus a little bit more on those projects, as well as a few others, in a little more detail. Today I want to talk about layout!
Whether this is your first time working without a pattern, or you are a pattern-less pro, at some point you are going to need to stop and consider your layout. There are a few different routes you can take; a straight forward approach, straight forward with a twist, or ultra creative. Each option will give you stunning results, and really showcase those fussy cut prints.
The Straight Forward Approach
Projects using this approach typically just add some sashing and line up the polaroids in rows. This layout style may be simple, but there is a reason why you see it so often – it’s a great layout option, and very effective in presenting your blocks. It uses a very traditional style of row construction, despite the rather “current” style of block.
Straight Forward with a Twist
Grids create nice clean lines and a natural order for the eye to drift across. They are straight forward, fast, and relatively easy to assemble. That doesn’t mean they have to be boring! Are you interested in doing a grid, but maybe want to jazz it up a bit? Why not choose an element of the design, and add a little OOOOMPH to it?!
Thinking outside the box can be a tad more time consuming, but incredibly rewarding. Why not add big visual interest to your grid, or steer away from a grid all together? When you go Ultra Creative, the options are nearly endless!
