Larger Photos Part 4

Here are some more scrapbook pages using full-sized photos.  In this first one I printed the title directly onto the photo that I used for the background - and that was pretty much the whole page.  Often I print the journaling directly on the background, but for this page I cropped a portion of the photo and lightened it before adding the text and placing it on the background as shown.

Here the large underwater picture formed the perfect backdrop for the closeups of a couple of fish.  By printing my own background, I was able to print white text directly on it for the journaling.  The title was printed and then cut out and adhered to the page.

This page is another example of a large photo as background.  If you look VERY closely, you can see the kayaks that are shown in closeup in the center picture on the left.

 When using a colorful picture as a background it can be a bit challenging to place the other pictures.  In this case, I positioned them such that the journaling was printed against the gray pavement and the car in the center of the background forms the focal point!
