Jennie McGarvey: Pairing Large and Small Items
Pairing large with small embellishments is exactly what I love to do! A person can pull together several same-size items that look beautiful together. Most of the time though, there is at least one bit or piece smaller than the others. It just looks better and has better balance.
On each layout, I create clusters and within those clusters, I balance the size of the items each time. Ordinarily, there is one large item, one slightly smaller item, and one small item. This helps provide balance and interest in each cluster.
Not only do I do that in each individual cluster, but when comparing my main clusters as a whole (usually three that make up a visual triangle) one is usually bigger than the others and the main focal point.
Pairing large and small elements together is easy to do and creates a beautiful embellishment or project everytime!
