Welcome to Day 12 of the series, FIND your FIT! (To return to the beginning, click here.)
Yesterday, we talked about smaller photos. Today, let’s talk about larger-sized photos in scrapbooking.
What do I mean by larger sizes?
For the purposes of this information, larger-sized photos refers to prints that are bigger than 4″ x 6″. I thought that splitting the photo sizes into two categories would be more helpful.
Photo-processors, like Persnickety Prints, offer prints in a multitude of sizes larger than the standard 4×6″.
These sizes are just examples of larger photos. 5×7″ and 8×10″ prints can be ordered from just about any developer, and you may have several on hand that can be scrapped. The non-standard sizes would be a fun addition to your pages.
How you can incorporate them into your scrapbooking
A single large photo:
Larger photos can leave room for titles, embellishments, or journaling to be added directly to the picture.
A single photo or larger on a 12×12″ layout also takes up more space, but still leaves room for journaling or embellishments.
A layout with a larger photo and multiple smaller photos:
As I mentioned yesterday, smaller photos, when paired with a larger photo, support your story and provide detail.
Put them into pocket pages:
If you are a pocket scrapper, you can also incorporate larger photos into your layouts. Try cutting a larger photo to spread over multiple pockets.
