7 fun things to do to photos on your projects



You know how I love to "embellish" the photos on my layouts to help tell a story better *winks*...here are some fun photo treatments you can try to create more interest and excitement on your projects. :)

1. Create texture on your photos.

Don't like the colour/texture of your background? Try adding some texture paste/dimensional paint. And pop up your silhouette photos to create even more depth. I, of course, gave my niece some "props" to hold to amp up the fun factor! ;)

2. Consider cutting your photo/s into a triangular shape.

Or any other fun shape to create interest on your page. Here I cut my photo into a triangle and reinforced the triangle shape by using elements in the same shape on other parts of the layout.


Family-fun
Guess who's afraid of Aunt E?

3. Try a b/w photo with a coloured photo.

Sometimes when you have consecutive shots that are slightly different, try using a b/w photo with a coloured photo. The contrast helps to differentiate the photos better and adds a nice design element to your project.

4. Doodle on your photo.

Draw and write on your photo for a graffiti effect. Here I outlined the silhouette of my niece and nephew to make them pop...I also wrote my journaling on the photo.

5. Put a photo in a glassine bag for a fun before and after shot.

This layout was about new shoes so I had the old shoe photos punched out in circles as a "teaser"to the new shoe photo which is enclosed in the glassine bag.

6. Embellish a large photo.

A large photo gives you more "real estate" to add fun embellishments...and helps to make your focal point "pop".

7. Try a silhouette or three. 

I love how consecutive shots help capture the micro expressions on the subject's face. Make it more interesting by cutting out the silhouettes of consecutive shots and incorporating them on the same background photo. And of course create a whole "scene" to up the fun factor....like add a bench and white picket fences. :)

There you have it....7 fun things to do to photos on your projects. Which is your fave?

Happy weekend friends!:)

This is genius. You have such a unique and clever way to scrapping and I love when you create roundups like this. Never in a million years would I think to add texture paste (and balloons!) to photos, so that's probably my favorite because it's so unexpected.

Super fun photo layouts. Love the glassine bag idea. Thank you for the great ideas. I wish you were my aunt, daughter or sister so you could turn my photos into works of art.
