March 2011 Crop Challenge #1: White Out

Hi, everyone! Ready for your first crop challenge!?

The prizes for this challenge are Ruthie's CTMH "White Daisy" & "Colonial White" ink pads.

The first challenge of the new year is to make a layout utilizing strong white space. Not sure what white space is? Click here! White Space in Graphic Design. An example of a layout I did with strong white space is below.

To participate, create a layout using strong white space to highlight your page elements. The layout may be any size {12"x12", 8.5"x11", 8"x8", 6"x12", etc.} and can be either a one-page or two-page layout, but it MUST have photos AND journaling to be considered complete.

Enter the challenge by posting a link to your submission BELOW by 9:00 p.m. on Monday, March 7, 2011. The link can either be to a photo of your entry in an online gallery {like The Beach!}, or to a video on your YouTube channel or to a post on your personal blog ~ wherever!

Remember that you have until 9:00 p.m. on Monday {that's Miami, FL EDT USA time which is GMT-5} so you have until then to submit an entry for each challenge. Prize winners will be chosen randomly on Monday and posted in a new "March 2011 Crop Prize Winners" thread in the "Official Beach Announcements" forum on The Beach.

You will get one entry for each challenge you participate in, so get ready to scrap! The next challenge will be posted at 4:00 p.m. Miami time!

Life's a beach. Scrapbook it.
