Another two-page layout today! Like I said the other day, two-page layouts are my comfort zone and work better with the amount of pictures I want to use. While I did somewhat follow the same over all idea as Wednesday's layout, there are several differences.
Variation #1 - Again, I used three 4 x 6 photos in place of the 3-1/2 x 5 photo on the sketch.
Variation #2 - This time I took a little bit of my own direction with the accent photos instead of following the sketch. I had a lot more that I wanted to include so I had to find a way to make it work.
By cropping them smaller than the sketch suggests and by arranging them differently I was able to include all the photos I wanted to use.
Variation #3 - On the layout I shared Wednesday I had removed the photo mat for the large photo and kept the background. This time I removed the background and kept the photo mat. I could have highlighted one photo with a mat but I decided to extend the mat to fit the three 4 x 6 photos.
Variation #4 - I really, really wanted to do something different with those vertical strips this time. I played around with the idea of creating a large embellishment to go there, like a big star or circle cluster. Then I saw the arrow pieces on the coordinating sticker sheet and thought they would be a great substitute for the strips.
Variation #5 - For the same reasons as the Wednesday layout I had to extend the strips/arrows to cover a larger area.
Variation #6 - Since I extended those strips/arrows I also created longer journaling strips.
Variation #7 - I added a little embellishment cluster next to the title to help fill some space. I also added some small embellishments in place of the heart banner.
