I got 5 first place ribbons, 3 second place ribbons, and 2 third place ribbons. I also took Judges Choice on one of my pages. That was really neat.
Several of the pages I entered were pages that I created using the workshop guides from CTMH. The one that took Judges Choice was the page I did from the Olivia Workshop last Fall. The page turned out beautiful, and the judges commented on all the attention to detail.
On this page, the judges thought I should have had more "stuff" in the blue space of the page.
Now, I think leaving the top blue, with the focus being below that including the embellishments and photos, draws the eye more to the subject matter, but that is just my opinion.
Even in this page, they wanted me to add more 'stuff' to the black area. I guess I am just really comfortable with the concept of 'white space' while some people aren't. I'd love to know how you feel about the new 'white space' trend. Please leave me a comment and let me know.
Well, that's all the news for today. I better go get the last of my weekend things done so I can enjoy the week ahead. See ya!
