Going with an industrial-minimalist layout with a retro-1950's crispness here. Be bold with the colors for this one, especially for small embellishments that are placed ever so precisely. Everything is rigidly lined up on these pages, except for the embellishments, which lends them that much more visual ka-pow. To really play up the minimalism, don't use any patterns or textures. Allow the simple design and the color to be the stars.
Get out your ruler and do the measurements for this layout, because there aren't any shortcuts and it will spoil the effect if you aren't careful in your placement. After those are placed, line up your larger photos and your journalling along the visual grid.
The six small photos should be identically sized and matted. Notice how they are further apart on the left hand side of the spread than on the right? It's like the pattern is falling into place from left to right.
This spread is not for the traditionalists or the faint of heart. Be bold and go for it big! I encourage you to try a layout that is not like your usual style. You may find you really enjoy the break in routine and can start to mix it up a little, adding more interest to your books.
