Continuing on from my previous post on scrapbook example layouts using circles here are five more examples of how to use circles in your scrapbook layouts. The scrapbook examples below include the use of clustering; white space; minimalism and adding everything you have to the layout.
Scrapbook Example Layout Using Circles 1
This is another scrapbook example of a masculine layout using circle design elements. Clustering is used here, with a curved arrow adding even more curves to the cluster of circles. The wonky striped frame and the squared block alpha contrasts well when compared to the circular elements. I almost always ink the edges of all of the elements cut out of patterned paper, as this creates contrast. The extra contrast adds to the cohesion of the design, and consequently makes it flow better.

Scrapbook Example Layout Using Circles 2
This example layout uses only a small amount of elements in total. The style is therefore minimalist. The circles in the background paper, add to the repetition of circle elements on the page. Minimalist style layouts can be very striking as they automatically draw your eyes toward the focus of the layout, the photo.

This layout also takes advantage of white space to focus the attention on the photo. The general idea when using white space is that there is uninterrupted space outside of the focus element. The circle elements in this layout unify the design and also work well with my dad and niece’s round cheeks in the photo.

The principle of this layout is the ‘over’ use of embellishments to add a sense of fun and business. When working on a layout like this, it is important to add and remove elements along the way. This will give you a good feel for if the embellishment is adding or taking away from the design. The large circular frame is the most significant element for tying the layout together. The cluster of elements in the bottom left serves to anchor the layout to the page. The rest flows towards Hannah’s gaze off to the top right of the layout. Lastly, all the strips cut out of patterned paper may be rectangular but they are placed in a spiral rotated around the center of the unifying circle frame.

Scrapbook Example Layout Using Circles 5
This last layout again uses white space around the photo. Charlotte therefore automatically draws our attention. The photo is anchored to the page using lots of circular flower embellishments in clusters around the circle frames. Using odd numbers of elements in clustering appears more pleasing to the eye. The page title and page fold also add interest to opposing corners of the layout. “Cheesies” is the prompt word we use to get my niece Charlotte to give us her most cheesiest smile for the camera.
