Back-to-School Scrapbook Pages

Balance a Large School Photo with Tiny Theme Embellishments

Design by Renee Villalobos-Campa

Renee kept the school theme going throughout her page with a focal point photo that dominates the page and two smaller detail photos in the right-hand corners for emphasis. Tiny bus embellishments substitute for words in her journaling, and real notebook paper forms the background.

Editor's Tip: Pair subtle embellishments with dramatic photos so they don't compete for attention. Renee's tiny buses and right-hand side title and patterned paper keep the focus on her subject.
