Great explanation of white space...I learned tons that I wil incorporate into my future pages.
Great video as always with lots of useful information.
@boris153 - it's not just you. Bringing that middle embellishment down closer to the washi tape would be a stronger design choice, but there were a few very minor elements that led me to a compromise and I pushed it up, which leaves some trapped space in the form of that aqua between the red and the tape. :)
Shimelle, thanks for another great video, and a fantastic explanation of white space. I hate to be picky, and it might not be technically white space. And besides maybe I'm just weird - but I find my eye falling off the diagonal line, and into that box of aqua - in between the middle red element and the washi tape below. Is it just me?

Video - Glitter Girl Adventure 056: Spacious Speculation
Today's Glitter Girl Adventure is an extended episode all about white space and how it applies to scrapbook design, inspired by this thread [twopeasinabucket.com] on the General Scrapbooking message board. There are four sections to this adventure, and you can skip to the section you need to reference with these time markers:
Theory to start
Supplies from 11:40
Photos from 16:30
Layout construction from 18:30
Come along for the adventure, won't you?
Your challenge this week is to create a project thinking mindfully about how you use white space, no matter what your style may be. Upload it to the gallery and in the description box, share your thoughts on how you made decisions for spacing things on your page. Don't forget to check the box for the challenge in step four of the upload process.
Once you've watched today's adventure and are feeling pretty good about space, it can be really useful to watch another scrapbooker put together a project while you look for the space choices she makes. This project by Kristina Nicolai-White from the In the Mood to Scrap series is a particularly interesting one, as Kristina uses space in very different ways to Glitter Girl's layout.
And I'll see you next Wednesday for another Glitter Girl Adventure! Don't forget to post on the General Scrapping message board when you have a crafty dilemma - Glitter Girl could be on her way to your problem next week!
