Following on from last month’s Team Favourites posts where I shared the Creative Team’s favourite layouts without photographs, this month we decided to showcase layouts with BIG photos! Large photographs can make a dramatic statement on a layout, you can frame them and make them the focal point of your page or you could use them as the background and layer other photos and elements over the top. You can also have fun with blending modes, layer styles and masks to create more artsy effects with those big pics!
Here’s what the Creative Team chose as their favourite big photo pages:
I love using big photos and making a “full” page. These photos were taken on a trip to Fiji and my son had so much fun being part of the dance group.
The entire right hand side of this page is actually a photo of a worksheet that my son brought home during his first week of kindergarten. I like it because the construction paper that his worksheet was mounted on sort of matches the papers I used in the layout, so that the digital and the physical are combined seamlessly. I also love my son’s silly expression in the photo!
