Gossamer Blue

Creating Two-Page Layouts

1 Comment

Hello! It’s Jill Cornell here with you today to share my first blog post for Gossamer Blue with the August kit. I am very excited to be on board here and hope to share my ideas for creating two-page layouts with you every month. You will find by looking through the August design team gallery that I love to create layouts with multiple photos. I haven’t jumped aboard the Project Life bandwagon yet but I used August’s Life Pages kit to help me create this two-page layout. Last summer, we went on our first vacation as a family of four and I wanted to highlight some of my favorite photos. I love using multiple photos to help me tell a story as you can see here.

When I create a two-page layout, I usually will print several photos at 4×6 or 3×5 and then use several 2×3 photos to help fill in the gaps. I also try to bring design elements across both pages so it helps the eyes connect each page. Here I used one of the Life Pages 4×6 cards to showcase my title.

I used a couple of the Life Pages 3×4 cards for my smaller wallet size photos and used the Travel Girl 8×8 patterned paper from October Afternoon across both of the pages.

On the second page, I used two 4×6 cards and two 3×4 cards all as photo mats. I love the variety of embellishments included this month. The wood veneer luggage, the flair, the transparency pieces and the banner clip were all used here.

I’ll definitely be back next month with more two-page layout inspiration!
