Class Information - Layout Anatomy: Session 5 - Freebie

Class Information:

SpeedScraps is now in session! If you own a DSLR and have never moved the dial off Auto, then this class is for you! Come explore your camera as we work together through the highly acclaimed book 'Understanding Exposure'. For more information and to register, visit this post.

Layout Anatomy: 

I just love how the digi-scrapping products evolve with the seasons. It keeps me motivated to sort through last years pictures and get them scrapped! I made this layout for Jennifer Labre's new product at the DigiChick this week - Fall Whimsy.

Photo Notes: As you sort through photos for the 'keepers', it might be tempting to purge the ones where the subjects are out of focus, laughing, making funny faces or have their eyes closed. Take a second look at those 'less than perfect' photos and ask yourself 'what story do they tell?'. In 20 years, you might appreciate the joy you find in looking at photos like this and the memories they evoke.

Layout Notes: Use elements on your page to create movement and draw the readers eye where you want it to go. On this page, the leaves and the string draw your eye across the page to the larger photo.

Freebie: I made this layout into another Layered Template for you! Enjoy! :)
