Sometimes a story is just too big for a layout. Whether you want to include multiple photos, a long story or just need more space to try a new technique, sometimes a two page layout is the way to go. We've enlisted a handful of our Creative Team members to take on the challenge of making more two page layouts this year - be sure to follow them for more inspiration!
Tina Aszmus : I'm trying to take a different approach to my 2 page layouts this year...really push myself out of my comfort zone. Doing Project Life really helps in this area because I'm focusing on a whole 2 sided layout rather than a single page. It's been a fun experience, one that will continue in my Studio Calico gallery. For those who are reluctant to try 2 pagers, I hope that you'l take this challenge with me!
Geralyn Sy : When I have a lot of photos or something special I want to document, I like to make two-page layouts. It's a simple way to include more white space so my layout looks and feels less cluttered. It's also a bigger canvas to play on ;) For this layout, I wanted to document my travels in 2013 and I decided to highlight one of my favorite travel quotes on the left side and create faux polaroids on the right side. To unite the two pages, I added a few woodgrain triangles on the left (from one of the patterned papers in the Gumdrop add-on) to match and tie in with the kraft background on the right.
Lisa Truesdell : I almost always start my two page layouts with two different pieces of background paper. This lets me think of the spread as two coordinating pages rather than one BIG page - and I find that way less intimidating! Carrying similar elements across both sides of the layout helps visually tie them together.
