When I first started scrapbooking I thought every page had to be a piece of art. Stunningly beautiful, telling stories with the photos and embellishments and all the stuff that IS scrapbooking. I’d spend hours trying to get a single page to look just so, making sure there was no white space, because clearly that spoke of an unfinished layout. Over time I’ve changed my mindset on this. Now that I have two children’s lives to document, I have begun to embrace the white space, choosing rather to add little pops of color to contrast against the white space and draw the eye.
But then…I see it. In all of those colorful journals and strikingly beautiful layouts, I see it. White space. It is the white space that really makes the colors pop and become more noticeable. Even the tiniest amount of white space on a dazzling colorful page makes that page light up.
White space is not to be feared, it is a gift. Embrace today’s white space in your life. Knowing that it is those ordinary days that give way to the sunrise of tomorrow.
