Joanne uses white space and color so dynamically. This layout is absolutely incredible!

"I love a lot of white space on my layouts so it draws the eye straight to the main cluster focusing on my photos. To create my main cluster I fussy cut a lot of pens from the Pen In Hand patterned paper and then just started layering them until I was happy. The background of the cluster was created with watercolour paints and a text stencil. I chose to use the Communique collection because a lot of the papers in the collection are neutral colour tones making it easy to mix with other colours." ~Joanne
