This week's challenge is over how to balance a siggy. You may use no more than 2 pics which can not be side by side (can be up and down) and if you use just 1 it can not be in dead center. You must also use at least 15 (I'd prefer more than 25) elements. Examples:

(has about 15 elements, the paper with the quote helps balance the picture on the side.)

(the large heart in the background balances the off center pic and the 10 element cluster)

(the text and faded photo on the other side is this pic, plus the way the stuff in the background meets on that side balances the pic)

Please post your originals here listing the elements you used, and then go to the Maker's Lounge for CC, then post your final here by next Monday morning.

Hmmmm...I should really work on this because I'm too obsessive about being so "centered" and symmetrical

Ditto!! I struggle with the number of elements as well as their placement. Not as much with photos but I do always feel that they need to be centered! LOL!
