My kid decided she wanted really short hair over a year ago. Not only that but an array of colors were in store for us (I dye her hair for her). This page shows the first of those color changes.
The page design was inspired by two factors
- my continuation of NSD layouts from the SCT challenges, this one to use a grid
- and Shimelle’s new weekly challenge to use square photos.
Using a grid does not mean that everything has to be clean and graphic. I started with my square photos in a tidy row and added lots of layers. Keeping the layers symmetrical keeps the geometric feel of a grid without keeping the rigid structure of a grid.
Of corse square photos fit perfectly with a grid layout. I use squares often. I will use them at 4×4 or 3×3. When I choose and edit photos, I decide which photos could benefit from a square cropping. Once I have my photos cropped, then I look to layout options. I thought these two photos would benefit from a third element for a line/grid layout. Making my own title/embellishment treatment filled in the gap nicely. It also works to read the subtitle stickers as “before and after”. This is a much different title treatment for me but I quite like it.
Go try a symmetrical layout yourself.
