making all of your elements on a scrapbook page feel connected? Some times it is the tittle or the journaling or an embellishment cluster that just feels like it is floating all alone. Any tips on how to make all the elements on a page feel connected, like they belong where they are?

Lots of layers. Layers that overlap. Repeat colors and shapes.Do you have a page you can share so I can see what you mean more?

GG is good about telling you why she does things, and she goes for a visual triangles or diagonal lines with repeat colors to make everything flow togeter. Also grounding your titles and them being a part of the design, not an afterthought.
I love Glitter Girl/Shimelle

Just having things touch even a little on the page really helps.

You can have space between groupings but you need to have an item touching something .....
In other words, don't have just one item floating off by itself.
Size matters.....larger items look less like they are floating than one small item, not touching anything.....
Try linking your embellishments to either, your photo, your journaling spot or the edge of a page....
