Family Album 2015, my stories

Photo Book Layout: The Garfield Trail

A few weeks ago, I shared the story of our visit to the Garfield Trail in Grant County, Indiana. Today, I'm sharing a two-page spread I made to document the trip for our 2015 family photo book.

As with previous years, I am planning on creating an 8x10 photo book and printing with Blurb. But, this year I'm allowing for a little flexibility in the way I tell stories and create layouts for our book. I'm also hoping to create some layouts a little more in real time and documenting some things close to the event. 

For this spread, I adapted an 8 1/2 x11 template from Cathy Zielske to fit the 8x10 layout of my book. I had less photos I wanted to use than the original design, so I modified the size of the frames on the left-facing page. The original design had the large image on the left and the photo collage on the right. I reversed this order and adjusted the placement of the title and journaling areas to maintain the asymmetrical design.
