Vignettes are so much fun to do. You can use them to tell a story, show off a collection, represent a season and so much more.

There are a few tricks to putting together a vignette but the biggest thing you need is an imagination. The two rules I tend to always follow are the power of odd numbers and the low, mid, high rule.

Power of odd numbers is just what it sounds like...I use odd number of items; 3, 5, 7. It tends to feel more balanced with odd numbers of items, I know it sounds counter intuitive but try it, you will see what I'm talking about.

Then there is the low, mid, high rule...all this means is that you want to have items in your vignette that are different heights so that the eye can travel up and across the vignette.

 I love this one...your eyes starts with the top hat and shoes then travels up to the mirrors which are in three sizes, the shortest mirror is in line with the waist of the mannequin which draws your eye to the right and up to the flower at the top.

 This one is self explanatory...

And this one is a great example of both rules...as you can see though there are so many ways to put a vignette together, it really comes down to what do you want to say and use your imagination and get creative.

I could post a million pictures of vignettes and could spend days putting them together because I find them so much fun to do and it is endless to what you can do.
