Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Negative Quickfire

You've got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

It's week two of our negative campaign. Time to check in our with designers.

Have you noticed how beautifully paper crafters are using negative space in their projects lately? Every time I see this technique it strikes me as so elegant and impressive, but so simple.

  • Just show us a project using negative spaces created from your die cuts, punches, electronic cutters (like a Silhouette or Cricut), etc..
  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Link up and link often, but be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, November 10.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments. (The InLinkz tool below will give you a blank to tell us which player's site you visited and left some comment love.)
  • Check back with us on November 11 to see if you've won an opportunity to be a guest designer.

To help you understand the idea of using negative space I've curated some projects in my Pinterest board: Accentuate the Negative. Prepare to be stunned. And, as always, our designers put together some gorgeous eye candy for you.
