Photo Collage

Good morning all.
I was flicking through the challenges the other night (as you do) and found one for a photo collage with a link to Picassa. So I duly downloaded and made a photo collage with some more of last years holiday photos then created this layout. I was a bit disappointed that  you couldn't change the size of the photos yourself (or at least I didn't find a way!) as I would have liked to decrease the size of the main image to leave more space for the top and bottom border ones. Having said that I'm quite pleased with the result and will likely use it again.

Layout was created in Craft Artist using "Hey There" from Template Dreams.
I last visited Lulworth as an 11 year old and have always wanted to go back so it was great to be able to fit in a day out with hubbies Aunt when we were in Somerset last summer.

Challenges entered:
Use your Stuff - use a photo collage
(My stuff is my photos - I have more years than I care to think about waiting to be scrapped and although these ones are fairly recent in comparative terms they're still over 6 months old!! Don't think I'll ever catch up with myself.)
Paper Minutes - snapshot
Lasting Memories - something old (photos) something new (kit)

  5. I love your collage. The only way I have found how you can control photo size (to a limited extent) is to either add photos or take a photo or two out. That changes how the collage looks. Another way is to change the collage from landscape to portrait or vice versa.

    Thanks for playing along on the challenge this week.
