Inspired by the Big Photo Page with Marie H Designs


Hello everyone! It is Marie aka Marie H Designs and I am here with a new blog post that is part of my blog series “Inspired by”. Today it is “Inspired by the Big Photo Page”. What’s a Big Photo page ? Of course we can all have a different definition of what’s a big photo page but for me and for many in Digiland it is a page where the photo (or more) takes more than 50-60 % off your page. It sometimes means also to have fewer elements and journaling.

I love big photo pages and even if having a huge photo can be tricky it doesn’t mean that your layouts will all look the same.

For example in this layout you have the photo that takes more than half of the page. I loved the smile of my daughter in it and I didn’t want it to be small. You can see that there is plenty of room to add a wordart and clustering. 

Big photos pages are also very good to capture scenery, nature and the wildlife. In these 2 layouts, Linda and Betsy have created layouts using big photos.

Linda has used a mask for a stunning beach photo that she enhanced with clustering and paper shaped. Masks are great to give a little extra to your big photo that are not always perfect.

Betsy used 3 photos that envelop the layout almost entirely. Being that big makes us see the great blue heron perfectly and she even has added journaling. 

In both layouts the idea was to bring the eye to the main subject… the nature.

Big Photo layouts can also be used to create vintage page with photos that we cherish. Tammy has created this page from her grand dad. It takes up around 40-50 % of the page but she has stacked it with many papers and elements to enhance the vintage feeling to it. If you are like me and have lots of old photos to scrap this is a great way to make them memorable.

Sometimes we have too many photos we like to scrap of the same event, moments that it can be hard to decide what to use. For this last page I had decided to use one of the photos for the background and added smaller photos on one of the corners. It reduces the numbers of elements we use but I was able with a border to add a little clustering. This is one of my favorite layouts ever. 

As you can see you can use big photos in your layouts… and it is still makes gorgeous layouts. It gives you a new look to the way you want to use your photos.

Have you ever tried big photo layouts ? 

Have a wonderful time scrapping !
