Welcome to the # of photos blog hop, where we are each given a number of photos to include in our layouts. You should have arrived here from Dana's blog. If you are just joining in or are a bit lost along the hop, be sure to visit Amanda's blog
I am last along your journey and I am scrapping with 7 or more photos. I love to take photos and they are all my favorite and do their part in telling the story, so I love to use many photos. This can be tricky, but the first thing I do is start with a two page spread. Sometimes I like to use a sketch, other times I just print out a bunch of photos and arrange them on my own. Using a grid pattern can be a great way to add a bunch of photos to your layout.
For this layout, I chose to print my photos in a few different sizes and group them in a cluster pattern. Think a grid with the photos pulled together and overlapping with one another. I really like this look, and it had been a while since I employed the technique. I just fussed with them until I liked the look I got, then adhered them to the page. I used different sizes to give interest to the cluster.
The story I had to tell here is of my son's trip to a Formula Drift event that he took with his friends. They had a blast and he had never really done anything like this before. I love that they took a bunch of Instagram photos that they shared with me so I could get this down on paper.
Thanks so much for hopping with us today! Be sure to check back with Amanda or a fun way to play along with us.
