Scrapbooking By The Numbers - 4

Continuing the "Scrapbooking by the Numbers" theme, today's focus is on 4 photos.  A layout that often works well for four photos, is combining a focal photo with a strip of three smaller photos.  In this first example, the three smaller photos are of differing sizes, but are all visually combined into a border through the use of the darker strips of paper and the vertical arrangement.

Here's a similar example, using bright orange mats to help them stand out.  Notice that the 3 smaller photos are once again cropped to different sizes, but all matted on one mat to create a cohesive look.

Of course, the strip of three photos doesn't have to be a vertical strip - they can be horizontal as in this example.  Here, two matted strips of paper on the top and bottom help create the look of a border.

The three photos don't even have to be in a straight line.  They can be put on a diagonal and even layered as shown in this example.

Making use of angled placements can often add interest to a page. In this case, the focal photo is on an angle - even though that means part of the mat had to be cut off!  Note that the focal photo is not only larger, but is also the one with the most color so it stands out nicely.
