For some scrappers, they always do multiple pictures on a layout. So, this may not bee too hard of a challenge, but for me it is hard sometimes. I love to take a lot of pictures, and I love the look of a scrapbook page with just one photo on it that is the focal point of the page. So, how do I solve this problem? I can either not scrap all the photos I take, or I can scrap more layouts with more pictures on the page. This can be challenging.
Recently, I did a blog post titled, Fitting More Photos on a Page. This might help you to jump start this challenge. So, this week for the challenge, let’s make it a goal to fit at least 3 photos on your page.
How are we going to do this? Here are a few tips:
1. Cut your photos down to size
2. Cluster your photos in one spot
3. Put your photos in a “strip” so to speak down the middle of the page, or across. Whichever way is more appealing to the eye. To do this, cut them all the same size, and line them up with no space in between.
4. Angle your photos. Trying to fit them all on the page perfectly straight will be harder than if you angle some of them, or even all of them!
5. Overlap your photos. This technique will free up so much room on the page. Just be sure not to cover up something important in the photo.
6. Scrap the same photo over and over. I actually see this done a lot, and it has a really cool effect. If you have multiple pictures of the same thing (typically school photos or studio photos) then, use the same one 3 times. This may seem like cheating, but for this challenge, it still counts! Waste not, want not…right?
All of these tips will help you with this week’s challenge. Think it’s impossible? You can do it! And, give yourself an extra point for every picture you do over three. But, since we aren’t really keeping score, maybe a pat on the back would be nice instead.
