Clusters of Goodness

A trend I see occuring frequently in this awesome hobby is the use of clusters on a layout.  I so enjoy figuring out which elements to place in a cluster.  Size, shape and texture really matter to create an interesting focal point on a layout.

When I build a page, I typically start with my bare desk and lay down a photo or two.  Then I start building, going outward until the page is complete.  The cluster is a huge component of that.

See what I mean:

I chose to do a center cluster on this layout!  I don't do this often, but I like the effect here.  I used the Webster's Pages Ladies and Gents line for this!  The flower matches the collection perfectly.  To add more texture and dimension, I used a silhouette and a heart doilie!

So glad I caught this picture of Ella and I at her party!  She is my little twin in more ways than one. 

So many traits and characteristics clustered together!
