Designer’s Choice: Using Multiple Photos on a Layout
Hey everyone! Jennifer here today sharing a one-page layout I created with May’s Here & Now kit.
These days it is a challenge for me to get more than one picture on a project. I remember a time when I did nothing but two-page spreads with as many photos as I could cram onto that 12 x 24 real estate. For this project, I knew I wanted to use this series of photos I took on Easter Sunday. It is not often that all my kids are together in one place, and this was special because they all used to sit on this counter at my mom’s house when they were little.
The horizontal lines on the paper served as my inspiration for photo placement, and that’s where I started. I cut a portion of the corrugated paper, mounted the photos and backed it with colorful patterned paper to make it pop.
Once the photos were in place, I started embellishing (my favorite part). I love the acrylic numbers in the kit and used the “3” with one of the photo frames to emphasize my favorite of the three pictures. With the frame turned sideways and tilted, the straight lines of the paper and photos are broken up a bit to give the layout more dimension.
Most of the time I begin a layout with one or two ideas in mind and wing it from there, which is exactly what happened with the title and the rest of my embellishments. I love, love, love all of the Fancy Free goodies in this month’s kit and those Thickers are my absolute favorite ever!
I finished up the layout with some flair, a few sequins, and an arrow I cut out from the Better Together acetate sheet. You can find everything used to create this layout in May’s main kit, Here & Now.
