With a little (or rather a lot) of help from Shimelle I have accomplished it.
I will show you the steps towards it...
1) Pick a base cardstock and then staple, sew or double sided tape half a transparency
|Then back up your photos so that you have two on each side and top them with some embellishment|
|These animal pics would have been too bland for a layout on their own|
The staged final layout. Don't you love the little monkeys?
I will definitely be using this idea for future layouts as I always take too many pics and needed a technique to include them, but still have the best shot as the main focal point.
P.S San Diego Zoo is a fab day out and I would totally recommend it if you find yourself with a free day in S.D!
