Prom May 2011

More of my son Colton's prom layouts. Formal themes like proms and weddings call for simplicity and in many cases use larger pictures so one or 2 photos per page is enough. I stuck with black and white and gypsy purple and amethyst cardstock throughout the layouts for consistency. Placing the photos first that I wanted over two 12 x12 white pages, I came up with ideas. The larger picture simply called for a double matt and mount on the background. Flourishes finish it nicely and the amount of white space makes the photo even more dazzling. When photos have to be cropped square, then square shapes become part of the layout design. Here, in the second layout, I created square boxes in amethyst the same size as the photos and matted all of the pieces onto a large square to get this look. The empty spaces will be used for journalling using a calligrapy pen. Flourishes were stamped into the corners.
