I created this page for an article from Get It Scrapped about using 3 photos on a page. Contrary to the advice I gave in today's MSE article, I chose a grainy photo for my background. In many ways, the photo has been used as though it's a sheet of patterned paper with photos and journaling placed on top. I made sure to keep the photo's subject visible and only placed the title, embellishment clusters, photos and journaling in the expanses of white space.
I am sharing tips about how I integrate large photos into pages and my thoughts about moving away from using just 4x6 prints on my layouts today on MSE.
Using large photos takes a little practice but is an excellent way to step out of your personal creative box. I am still not always comfortable with using bigger photos, but as with anything, the best way to learn is by doing.
