Hello! It's Sian here with another couple of layouts I made using Leo's lovely kits.
I'm still thinking about quirky ways to use photos on pages and I've come up with this:
What do you reckon? Could it be time to bring back - cutting up photos? Let me show you the full page before you decide:

This is a story about a visit my daughter made to a French Rugby Stadium. It was freezing and her camera battery died; but she enjoyed it enough to bring back her ticket. I wanted to use it on a layout and then I decided to include the photo in another way. I chose a black and white picture of some school friends playing rugby and used my Slice to cut out a title (cutting a pattern first so I could decide which part of my photo to use). Worth a try? I like the idea of using it with a page of memorabilia, programmes and tickets and then a big photo word. A rivhly coloured photo would look great with the monochrome papers in these kits.
Then I decided to go a step further and (are you ready?) I cut a photo into a shape:
This page documents a recipe exchange blog hop:
Both of those photos were in the original post (and the recipe is here if you are interested!)- I had no idea that a kit which would pull them both together colourwise was going to arrive on my doorstep a few weeks later. Every post was to include a picture of the host opening the door, so I found a chipboard house to draw round to emphasize that idea. What I like about this one is the way it allowed me to include the important part of the photo without taking up space I really needed for journaling. Keeping it small, using a shape which relates to my theme and using it as part of a cluster (and not floating randomly across the page!) all help to keep it looking fresh. Go on..try it. You might love it..
