- layouts that others can use for THEIR PHOTOS with THEIR SUPPLIES relatively quickly.
- layouts that someone can replicate with products they have in their stash
- layouts that would work with someone else's photos
- layouts that provide photo sizes and measurements with regard to positioning
- layouts that are more about providing useful designs than about providing inspiration.
So with that in mind, here is my page that recently appeared and the steps I used to create it.
1. Use two 4″ x 6″ photos. Crop one to 4″ square. Add a narrow white mat and a slightly wider patterned paper mat to each (use different, but coordinating, patterned papers for the mats).
2. Use white cardstock as base and mist the entire base with light or pale mist. Use darker mists in two colors sparingly at top left and bottom right.
3. Mount photos at page center with top edges aligned. Add title above and spanning the width of the two photos.
4. Add subtitle with smaller alphas and handwritten journaling below the shorter photo. The bottom of the journaling block aligns with the bottom of the taller photo.
5. Add borders of uneven strips of paper, stamping, and/or tape page top and bottom. Staple if you like the look.
6. Embellish at diagonal corners of your photo grouping (at the beginning of the title and the end of the journaling).
