Shaped Picture Collage Ideas

Balance Shaped Collages with a Grid Background

Design by Amy Licht

Template: Quick Collage 412

How she used it: Amy filled each of the template's three photo blocks, carefully positioning the subjects so they can be seen through the shape of the photo collage.

Make the scrapbook page: After creating a patterned-paper grid on her page, Amy aligned her collage with the white lines between the patterns. Bright papers and accents complement the colors in her photos, while a white border around the layout ties the design together.
