It's easy to rack up lots of photos during the summer months–especially when traveling! Our CP Gal, Jina Jean, has a couple of ideas for scrapbooking your fun vacation photos. Read on to find out more!
Yeah! It's time to take a vacation! Summer is the perfect time of year to get outside your comfort zone and travel with family and friends. We recently took a fun adventure of our own and I captured a vast number of photos along the way. Today, I want to show you how I scrapbooked some of the photos–especially those that I love!
This first layout showcases a photo that calls to focus the subject of 'landscapes'. It's essence is not that of "portraiture', but forestry and foliage. The memories soaked in at the very moment I took the photo echo throughout the entirety of the scene - which I made every effort to capture. This is further emphasized through the use of a large sized photo. Usually, I prefer to work with either 4" x 6"/2" x 3" photo'(s), but I went BIG this time around. I printed the photo on a full a4 sized sheet of photo paper. I then adhered it to the upper half of the layout, and arranged a minimal number of "Open Road" embellishments throughout. On top the photo is a simple arrangement of white letters - lending contrast against the green backdrop. As a finishing touch, I added journaling along the bottom.
My second layout goes beyond the 'photo' and instead, it's emphasis is on storytelling. During the trip, I took numerous photos from one location to the next. Each moment ascertained it's own special story. On this layout, I wanted to highlight one such moment. To do this, I pushed two related photos, from a single event, to the outer edges of my layout and in the center, I added journaling–connecting the two photos in a very personal way. In revisiting the journaling, I'm reminded of the special memories made during our travels.
I hope you like the two layout examples presented here - each personifies a unique perspective for documenting your unforgettable summer vacation memories. Consider what it is you want to emphasize and don't forget about the importance of journaling. Have a beautiful summer day!
