Boys Will Be Boys

If your anything like me, you have 1000’s of photos but you keep printing more and then you realise I am never going to get rid of the backlog – especially if your doing one photo per layout…. But then this situation has some tricky parts to figure out – how many photos is too many? I dont like doing double layouts? I like the crisp look of one photo on a page…….

Well I have the perfect layout for you!!! Something with a little hidden flip out book that still stays flat in your albums but you can add plenty of photos and journaling while keeping it crisp and clean.

From the inside of the book …. you can customise it to what ever width you need I did it slightly bigger than a 5×7 photo.

This is where the fun beings – adding all your photos and journaling I like to have all my photos touching each other it makes it look like one big photo and it stops that pesky trapped space.

Now to add some mixed media to the layout dont be afraid to stamp over the top of the die cut… I dont use a block for my stamp which allows the stamp to have less of an edge.

Now I just a brush to add my heavy ink….. it allows more control and less waste.
