This first layout was created using a Studio J custom kit and pattern. I made a few very minor alterations, and five photos from Fathers Day:
|I kept the journaling short and sweet by using a list to briefly describe the day.|
The new trick: Because I take lots of photos, especially when the g-kids are around, I needed to find a way to compress some of my favorites onto one 2-page spread. Here's the solution:
I created two collages using PicMonkey and saved them as a high resolution .jpeg. I dropped them onto Studio J's "No Limits" page pattern. Then, using the same Studio J kit, I was able to add a few embellishments to coordinate both Fathers Day layouts quickly and easily.
I'll be experimenting with the "No Limits" pattern alot more. This method allows me to create a main Studio J layout to document an event, then use embellished collages as complimentary layouts that feature favorite photos of the same event.
If you haven't tried Studio J I encourage you to pay a visit. Everyone is welcome to give it a shot .... no obligation to create an account or make a purchase. I think you'll like what you can do with a few photos and a mouse!
Thanks for poppin' on by!
Have a lovely day!
