I don’t often do multiple photo layouts but sometimes it’s just too hard to choose one! I converted all three of my photos to black & white so they wouldn’t compete with the scalloped rainbow I put together using the Whimsical collection.
Firstly, I chose six patterned papers from the Whimsical collection and arranged them in a rainbow order. I picked the lighter pastel patterns so that my photos and embellishments would stand out on the page. I trimmed five of the papers into varying sized strips, leaving the last paper to act as my background.
I used my cutting machine to cut one edge of each strip into a scalloped pattern, but border punches would work just as well here. After I adhered only the bottom and sides of each strip to the background (leaving the top open), I used the sharp edge of my scissors to rough up the scalloped edges and give a bit of texture and dimension to help each strip stand out.
Then I adhered all three of my photos to the page, slipping each one under a scalloped edge to make it look like they were peeking out. I kept one photo to the bottom left side of the page and the other two, I placed to the top right. This creates a visual triangle for me to start embellishing around.
Speaking of embellishments, after I created my title using different coloured alphas (in a rainbow order too!), I started adding die cuts, stickers, charms and chipboard embellishments around my three photos. I kept everything tone-on-tone to stop it becoming overwhelming.
I sprinkled a few enamel dots over the whole page which fills in a few gaps, adds a little bit of shine and draws your eye through the layout. My final step was to add my journalling, which I also kept tone-on-tone by writing in a green pen.
Here’s a quick process video to show you exactly how this page came together.
Are your layouts usually single photo like mine or do multiple photo layouts have your heart? I love how this turned out so you can bet I’ll be adding more photos to my layouts in future!
