Arranging Four Photos on A Scrapbook Layout

For some reason, placing four photos on a scrapbook layout is a challenge for me. I tend to fall back on cropping the photos into squares all the same size and arranging them in a grid. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I bet I'm not the only one who does it.

For the June Gallery at Write.Click.Scrapbook.!, I took inspiration from Amy Coose's Number of Photos Week from this past April. My layout uses four photos, but they are different sizes: a 4x6 focal point photo and three supporting photos that are 3x3, 3.25x3.25 and 3x3. It's a new way for me to think about working with an even number of pictures. Now, instead of seeing four photos, the eye sees a single photos and a group of three.

  1. I always love your pages when you fill in the windows of the background like this. I must try that technique. I rarely use four photos on a page, and when I get up to 3, you can bet they will be in a band horizontally or vertically.
