Friday Focus **White Space**

Now don't go running off when you read WHITE SPACE.... Its nothing to be afraid of, TRUST Stacy... Yep its me bringing you the Flourishes Focus! I am going to share with you some of the ways I use white space. I LOVE a lot of white clean space on my cards. It might be my OCD coming out onto cards! I just think the clean and simple look sometimes is what makes the card pop. I will show you the two common ways I use it.

First we have the single layer of white space I use a lot. I have a little color with the ribbon and paper. My Dove and Holly is the focal point and I added a little bit of sparkle to the leaves. I used the Copic collections Spring greens, Flesh tones and Dusty Rose. Very simple.

Below is what I call my layered white space. I have used the set A year of Flowers calendar set 2. I still have a lot of white space but I broke it up into two layers, and see it still looks so clean and fresh. Copic Collections I used were Dusty Rose, Fields and Sweet Peas. I added a little white crochet ribbon and pearls to top it off.

See white space is nothing to be afraid of! Give it a TRY! Now check out what the DT came up with for their version of White Space!
