This week’s Make It Monday Blog Circle theme is Spring. Since I showed you a mixed media technique for a spring project last week, today we have something geared for scrapbooking.
If you are following the Blog Circle, you will have landed here from Alice at Scrapbook Wonderland, where she shares a layout about springtime and baby animals. I’ll send you to the next link at the end of this post.
Sometimes it is great to enlarge a photo to full page, just to enjoy it even more! The easiest way to do that is digitally. Since most of us are taking digital photos, even if you don’t create layouts digitally, you can print your photo in a size that will give you a full page, no matter what size layout you prefer to make.
Notice that this photo is not quite the full 12″x12″ size of the layout, which may even make it easier if you were trying to print your photo instead of going completely digital. The closeup creates somewhat of a patterned paper effect for the majority of the page.
Using a small photo of the entire tree puts the closeup into perspective and tells more of the story by showing where the tree is located. Although this photo shows our neighbor’s home instead of our home, it is a great memory since it’s the view we have!
Don’t forget to jot down some info. You may think it will remain meaningful, but trust me, at some point it will be a much more interesting page in your book for the future.
What spring memory would you like to capture with a full page photo? Let us know in the comments.
