Designer’s Choice: photographing the details

By Jennifer Larson

Hello! It’s Jennifer Larson, sharing some ideas for creating a layout about a topic that is hard to photograph.

Recently we celebrated my son’s birthday at Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America. Taking pictures of them on their favorite rides was impossible, so instead I took pictures of the signs. Here’s the page:

I found that printing the photos 2.5-inches square let me fit all the signs on the page. I stitched in between the grid and added clusters of colorful embellishments around the page for fun. Finally, I added next to the title a photo of my boys waiting in line to get them on the page too.

If you are creating a page about something that is hard to photograph–a sporting event, a play, an amusement park ride, for example–take photos of the details instead and put the action in your journaling.

If this gives you ideas for a page, please share your page with us at the Scrapbook Circle Facebook page so we can check it out!
