It's Jennifer Larson, continuing to build the page on what I love about summer. Today I share how you can take or select photos for the page.
With a page like this that is journaling-driven, I find that there are two main ways to select and print photos: Go big or go small.
1. Go big, Pick a dramatic, fantastic photo that reflects some or all of your journaling, and print it big. I prefer 8x12 because it leaves room for journaling and embellishments, but you could go even bigger and use the white space. Here's a photo I might print big:
2. Go small. There's no real need for a focal point photo when you are scrapping a list, so select a variety of photos and print them small--2.5 squared, 3 squared, etc. I print two small photos on a 4x6 print and trim it to put on the page. You could line up or block together several small photos for greater impact. Note that these photos don't have to be from this summer--pull some from the past--this is not a memory keeping of current events but an amalgam of memories. Old photos are fine, even previously scrapped ones, because this is a new subject and a new memory.
I'll probably do this for my page. I selected a few photos I've already taken this summer to reflect some of what I love about summer. (The first I'm also printing big--not sure if I want to scrap big or small yet--and a big photo can always serve as a photo about their relationship!)
