Another great option, however, is to use multiple frames with one photo. Using multiple frames with one photo on a layout can have several benefits:
- It allows you to highlight certain parts of your photo.
- It adds a wonderfully modern and artistic look to your layout.
- It can add lots of wow! to an otherwise ho-hum picture.
There are many templates in the Scrap Girls Boutique to help you quickly and easily achieve the multi-frame look on your layout. You will notice that most of these templates have several layers. Find the first layer labeled “photo” or “photo mask” and clip your photo to that layer. Then it is simply a matter of copying your photo and clipping it to the remaining photo layers.
Tip: I’ve found it to be a time saver to make all of my photo layers and link them together before clipping them to the photo mask. This allows me to resize and adjust my photos as one, without having to try and adjust each photograph separately.
As a finishing touch, don’t forget to add shadows to each of your photo layers, if they aren’t included in your templates. This will enhance the look of the multiple frames and give your layout a more realistic appearance.
Let’s look at some examples of this fun technique:
The First one uses a single frame with the photo.
