STORY OF THE PAGE: My girl was home for interim break and we managed to eat a few family meals together. Sitting at the table against that glorious (but not so great for natural color) red wall, I asked them if they’d mind a photo. They both had similar sweatshirts on and both have hair highlights that are eerily similar. I just loved the resulting photo, having the two of them in one together. No, it’s not the greatest technical photograph, but this right here? Pretty much holds my heart, people.
DESIGN STUFF: This simple hybrid layout started with a digital template as its base. The balance is symmetrical; if you split the page down the middle, you have equal elements on either side. This balance is further enhanced with simply repetition of the green epoxy dots and the heart, a simple visual triangle of embellishments tying the page together. The photo is a straight up 6 x 4 snapshot I printed out on my Epson PictureMate.
TECHNICAL SHIT: Today I decided to record a video tutorial walking you through the basic steps of using a digital template as your page starter. I’ve included the steps in both Photoshop Elements and Photoshop CC 2017. Enjoy!
