I had a lot of pictures that I wanted on one page so I decided to cut up the photos and create a collage. I have done this in the past whenever I have a lot to squeeze onto one layout.
I started with a white piece of paper for the background. I had a large tag that had a map on the top half and said “Greetings from” and lines below for journaling on the bottom. I wrote River Street after “Greetings from” and I wrote, “Some of the statues and monuments lining the street.”. I adhered it to the paper at a slight slant. I wanted to cover up part of the map because it was places like the Artic Ocean. I layered my trimmed down photos over a lot of the map so that it was obvious it was a map but not any of the words are showing.
I believe that there are a total of 10 photos that were trimmed down and layered. I played around a lot with the placement before I adhered the photos. I had them overlap in several places making sure that nothing important was covered. There were a few “white spots” that I couldn’t cover with photos. I used a border sticker that I wrapped around the corner of the page that says, “wishing you were here…”. I added word stickers (friends, fun, wow) in different spaces and then added things like hearts, cogs, and arrow around. I did add a ribbon to the large tag and after all of the pictures and stickers were added I adhered the ribbon so that it would lay in place.
I really like how this page turned out. One other time I had this much success with a collage page. It was my oldest son’s 16th birthday party. There were a lot of kids involved playing a lot of games and eating a lot of food.
Hope all is going well for you and you are starting to enjoy this festive season!
