Scrapbook Sunday - Building Zoo Pages

This is the type of page I have always admired, but never really knew how to go about constructing.  In the "Building Pages" class by Debbie Hodge, there was a lesson about creating with white space, and I finally figured out how to make this work.  The class is based on lessons, each one using different design principles, and I'm really learning a lot.  Here's two pages about from the lesson about working with rectangles:



And one from a lesson on using columns and blocks:

Not bad for the first week of class!  All paper from Club Scrap.

What lovely zoo pictures and they fit the layouts so well.
I'm a huge fan of penguins, so I'm pleased to see that one made it onto the final page!

Great pages Rinda - this class sounds very similar to Cathy Zielske's Design Your Life.

Great layouts, Rinda. The first one is my favorite. Love your use of the ribbons and buttons on that one!

Are you all better now?

Nice to see you back to scrapping and arty stuff again. Does that mean you're well on the mend now? I hope so!

I really like the "White space" layout. I also had a bit of trouble getting to grips with this idea, but finally got it sorted and managed a couple of layouts that are among my favourites.
Of course, yours is Purple Space - which is even better!

Wonderful pages Rinda! Hope you feel better soon.

Great pages; I really like the layout and colors of the zoo layout. Four layouts--I'd say that was a great way to start the class. These layouts tell me I'd probably like this course a lot. Perhaps she'll offer it again.

Great pages, Rinda! I especially love the one at the top with the white space and fabulous grouping of ribbons and embellishments.
