Geometrist Style Decoded
Geometry is the branch of mathematics concerned with shape, size, position, proportion and properties of space. You see shape in ways no other page stylist can. You’re the mathematician of scrapbook design.
For you, crafting is like sitting down during circle time and playing with colorful blocks of paper. It’s very probable that you don’t need to use photos to craft your layouts because you can identify where the shapes of your photos should go without placing the actual photos on the page.
Your layouts usually include a fair amount of angular or circular shapes and you design your pages around the shapes or build the foundation of your page based on shape. You may also arrange your photos and scrapbook pieces into large, complex shapes, which creates visual interest on your page.
You want your page to look balanced, lined up, orderly and shapely. However, you are more concerned with helping your photos look their very best. You take great time to crop and position your photos so they visually tell the story you want to share.
You add embellishments with the purpose of supporting the colors and shape design. Every embellishment must be placed to scale so none are out balance or seem too large or too small in comparison.
