Single & Pretty: when one photo is enough

Perhaps you struggle with deciding when one photo is enough to use, versus using every shot from every event! How do you know when one photo is enough? In Single and Pretty, we discuss this topic and include some tips and tricks to flush out your single photo pages. So, whether you only HAVE one photo to use, or if using one picture is your choice, you're guaranteed to learn some great ideas on building a meaningful page around one picture. 
My page, Ducky Tail, is one I created for Single and Pretty.. and in the class and in my office hours interview we discuss how I created meaning with just one photo, plus the other choices I made when designing this sweet baby page.


For more photos... of kids, cats, coffee cups and scraps...  and daily peeks at my desk and my life... follow me on Instagram.

Single & Pretty: finding meaning in a single photo

In the Single & Pretty class at Get It Scrapped, one topic we discuss is creating meaning with a single photo. Whether or not you're a story-teller or purely a looks-based scrapper, considering the meaning behind your page design and embellishment choices can really enrich your layouts and add a lot of personal meaning to your creations. 
Don't miss out on the insights and inspiration of the Single & Pretty instructors and the rest of the GIS community -- sign up today and be inspired to find meaning in your single photos. For example, I discuss the hidden meaning behind this single portrait-style picture and how I built significance into my page, Freckles & Light, through design choices. 


For more inspiration, cool projects, and generally just really nice stuff to look at,
