Hi! It's Dannielle here and I have a fun inspired by layout to share with you all today.
Here is a look at my finished layout.
So here is the story. A couple years ago I stumbled upon a blog that had an interview series on it called "The Nine". In this series, artists were asked to respond to nine questions in photographs. I loved looking at all the different approaches of each persons photos. I always thought it would be fun to answer the same questions myself and turn them into layout. So that's what I did!
The first thing I needed to do was obviously answer the questions. I used a combination of old and new photos to do that. You can find the questions I used here, but you could apply this technique to any questions. Every year I do a birthday interview with my daughter and I usually just write out her answers, but taking a picture of her answers might tell even more of that story. I am usually all about the written words so it was fun to take a new approach and let my photos do the talking.
I typed up the questions I used, cut them up into little strips, and added them to a piece of white cardstock that I trimmed down to 4x11. You can see in the picture that I numbered the questions and the photos so that you know what photo goes with what question. To number the photos I used metal rimmed tags and those super great Felicity Jane alphabet stickers. I love how the little circle tags look on the big square photos.
Of course I didn't want to leave the back of my insert blank!! So I used some of the patterned paper from the kit and a couple embellishments to jazz it up just a bit.
I had so much fun working on this layout, and if you want to see how it came together you can check out my process video below.
