Fitting a Layout to Cropped Photos

Sometimes there is no ideal way to crop your pictures without creating odd shapes. On this “egg-cellent” layout I found that cropping the unwanted parts of the pictures away left an odd shape. So I created a layout to fit around the modified photos. I decided to accentuate the odd shape by matting the photos as one…I was “owning it” as they say. To get a smooth curve I used one of my dinner plates and drew the line to cut with scissors.

Then, I was able to put the title and journaling in the space there I would have otherwise had photos. By cropping away the unwanted parts I was left with more space to fill which allowed me to make a bigger title and journaling strips.
