CKC helps you build pretty scrapbook kits, and we also help you use them! We give you challenges to kick start your crafting. Today’s challenge is about diagonal design. It just so happens that a pattern paper from the inspiration kit that I re-created in a forgery has a diagonal design. So I used that as the foundation for my project. If you struggle with the idea of diagonal design, why not start with a diagonal product! You can watch the full process or keep reading for the simplified version.
I started with this diagonal paper that I painted. It has a strong diagonal design already.
I laid out my photos in story order along that diagonal line.
I then used a variety of embellishments, matching their color up with the background color. This process is called color blocking and it can help you use embellishments up that you were having a hard time making work.
Multicolored embellishments like the cupcake down below can be color blocked in different ways. I chose to match it up with the color of the frosting.
How do you feel about diagonal designs? How about color blocking your embellishments? Leave me your thoughts!
