Thursday Trending: Filling in the Sides

I sometimes feel like pages begin to look the same. For me, a top strip and white space are a must.  But I wonder if it gets old.  Lately, I am trying to fill in the rest of the space differently.  Maybe that will shake up the usual design.
Case in point, this page.  I went with the top strip and the slightly off-center photo placement.  Then I decided to tie the side into the design.

I used the same hexagon pattern along the left hand side and the top.  I also layered in several patterns in small doses along the side of the photo!  I really love pattern and colors.  It is easy to mix when you are dealing with a 12X12 page. 

I incorporated another trend I love on this page, the sunburst.  Yummy!  I purposefully placed it so the rays seem to come from Nathan.  I used last winter's releases from Alison Kreft to make this page.  Gosh, I love her stuff!

Another detail shot, using arrows and more hexagons.  Maybe I really like shapes too.

I think I will try more stuff along the sides!  They deserve some attention too!
