You wanna know what I love? Snow!! Its cold and refreshing and beautiful. You wanna know what else I love? Crossing things off my lists. I am a total list person and make lists for eevverryytthhiing. I love lists and maybe mostly the reason why I love lists is to cross things off. Anyways, this post is not about lists so let's just end that rambling right there. One more thing I love? Two page layouts! Two page layouts are perfect for telling a GIANT story that just won't fit on one page. It's also perfect for a "collection of photos" that all have a similar theme.
I've had quite a stack of 'snow' photos sitting on my desk for some time. They were all photographed the same year, but not the same instances. These photos are the mini album rejects and the layout losers. They didn't make the cut for either, but they were completely perfect for creating this collage 2-page layout about snow.
I cannot take credit for the actual laying out of this 2-page layout because I
came across completely fell in love with this layout by Shimelle and just had to give it a try. Now mind you, I didn't have the super cute Polaroid stamp she used for her layout, didn't have the right color spray mists to match my layout, and didn't really follow the rest of the tutorial after laying the 'frames' down, but I still completely love and am so proud of myself that I was able to adapt her layout to what I had. I'm also pretty proud that I was able to substitute the spray mist for paint, and by using a rub-on tool, I was able to create the 'dot affect' that stretches across the pages.
