I’ve been struggling with printing photos lately. In fact, I created this layout a good week before adding the photos in. I’ve been doing that a lot lately. Blocking in place holders so I can keep working and when I have the time to crop, edit, and print photos I just slap them on the layout.
I had no idea what to do with the sketch when I first saw it. The circles and circular design had me scratching my head. I knew that circles would not work for me so I decided to focus more on the overall layout and keep going. So I pulled out some big stamps I had just gotten decided they would represent the circles in the original sketch. I used the stamp as a frame for each of the photos I would use. Since it was basically a square image I decided to use square photos and the first thing that came to mind was using Instagram photos. Whala!!! I just didn’t feel like doing any journaling. I wanted the photos to tell the story vs having text do it.
