Last year in March I vacationed with a friend in N.C. While there she took me to an animal ranch. It was a great time and a great photo opportunity. With all those great animal pictures I couldn't decide which photos to use, so I used a photo program so that I could use twice as many pictures on each page.
This is a two page spread. This is the left side of the page. I chose a brown background paper. I mounted my photos on a white with gold metallic paper and randomly placed them on the page. Then I used a paper that looked like an old suitcase or trunk to create a pocket on the bottom of the page. I took all of my flight tickets and scanned and re-sized them to fit into the bottom pocket. I then used my Silhouette to cut the plane and lettering out of the same paper that I matted my photos with.
This is the right side page. I used matching paper on this page. I used only the top edge that had the mock nail head trim on. They were turned sideways to that they were centered on the center of the page. The truck lock was made from chipboard that I covered with metallic paper. I layered the latch, key hole and nail heads. I edged the lock with gold ink. I created photos within a photo using a photo program so that I could use more of my animal pictures. I matted them on the white gold metallic paper that is used on the front left page. This is what is called a shutter page. It opens by lifting the center chipboard lock.
This is the inside of the shutter page. Once again I used the edge of the scrap book paper. On the outside pages I turned the paper on its side matching the locks with the locks on the cover. The photos were matted with the same white gold metallic paper that was used on the other pages. On the center of the page I created three pockets with the suitcase paper. The photos were mounted on white gold metallic paper. In the top pocket I slipped in the park brochure. I re-sized three animal photos and then made three copies of each of them. I carefully cut around each of them cutting away more of the photo each time. I layered them using foam dots to give them dimension. I cut a strip of paper and attached straw to it. I then slid it into the top pocket. I poked the dimensional animals in among the straw with their heads peeking out of the pocket.
