Dual Page Layouts - tied together with borders

A dual-page layout can be thought of as one layout that has been cut into two parts.  In this first example we have the title and journaling on one side and photo on the other.  It can be important, however, to consciously tie the two pages together visually.  One simple way to create a visual bridge between two pages is to ensure that you have similar page backgrounds and borders.  In this first example, the borders aren't even the same size, but they are all the same color with the same wavy edges. 

Here's another very simple example of similar background and borders.

In this example, the title spans both pages, which also helps tie them together.  The photo corners that are identical on both pages also helps tie them together.  Note also, that each page has a wide border and a narrow border.  This helps create a visual imbalance on each page that is only balanced by seeing the two pages together.  This can be a very good way of pulling two pages together.
