Six photos, single page!

Think you can’t get a lot of photos on a single page layout? Well, think again. I often use multiple photos on my layouts. Even so, six did turn out to be a stretch for me. This was the task I accepted by SCT magazine in my continuing quest to work on NSD layout challenges. I started with one focal 4×6, one sub-focal 4×4 and 4 3×3’s. I then further cropped down two of the 3×3 to fit the space well on the layout. To make the photos all fit and not overwhelm I used a few tips…

  1. Keep pattern papers mellow and minimal.
  2. Use a generous amount of black inking on the photo edges to read as a mat without the space needed for an actual mat.
  3. Journal directly on the photos or onto labels to add directly to the photos.
  4. Fill in the gaps left in a grid layout with your embellishments.
