One Photo, Two Plans

So, any plans for the weekend? I have the straps of a "Formal" dress to fix, the half of a sock I ripped out last night (don't ask) to re-knit, and this month's layouts to put away.That would include these two

SianF Gossamer Blue October

which I put together for a post now up on the Gossamer Blue blog Single Versus Multi Photo Layouts.


It's about finding photos within photos and how that might affect the way you tell the story ...

...if you look closely, you'll see that all of my photos in the second page are actually contained in the first.


But I found a slightly different story when I enlarged them and printed them out, each on its own. Thanks for looking!

Hah! Clever ... Now I gotta go over & check out exactly what you mean:)!!!

Barbara Eads said...

What a gorgeous photo! And the fact that you managed to find more stories within the one makes it all the more interesting.

Now that's a very interesting challenge.

I Will Bloom said...

What a clever challenge! Absolutely stunning LO's, Sian...! Beautiful. Love the cluster on the first one and the colours you chose for the first LO are inspired! Thank goodness my plans for today include 'a lot of scrapping' because I'm now fuelled up on inspiration and raring to go! Have a great weekend!

Louise H said...

Oh Sian I already have too many photos to scrap without trying to find more! (LOL). This is a lovely idea - especially for a panoramic shot.
I wish I had your skill at fussy cutting - I never seem to choose the right 'bit' and end up with it looking flat and boring. Two more gorgeous pages (and lovely stories) for your albums., x

Julia said...

How clever! I might try this one day but I'm with Louise in that I have far too many to scrap already! However I do like how it took you down a different path and a different take to tell. Gorgeous colours. The black really makes for a striking page on the first one and the pops of red seem to shout Scanndinavia (or maybe that's just me as my "second mum" was a Danish lady). Anyhoo, both lovely pages.

Nice idea - I'm a big cropper-outer to tidy up the edges of shots ... but I guess this is almost the opposite .. a cropper-inner!

How clever to scavenge smaller parts of the bigger picture! Lovely layouts.

Jo said...

Great idea and great layouts x

Karen said...

Awesome! The photos, the two layouts, the design---the first layout is just beautiful!

Jane said...

what a clever idea, I really must get back to some scrapping. I hope the sock is progressing again.

alexa said...

Very neat :). And beautifully done too. I like the reverse of the black and yellow in your little groupings in the top photo. You do these little touches so well, Sian.

Melissa Stebbins said...

Well, that is very cool. The details really are lost sometimes, great to highlight them.

Patricia Roebuck said...

Had to stop by your blog. Just love your work! These are stunning! Band great post!

Linda said...

Gorgeous pages Sian! Lovely idea to use photos in that way. And great that you found another story that way:)

Jennifer Shaw said...

A fun way to look at photos! Two beautiful pages. I especially love the large photo on the first page. The simplicity of the design lets that photo shine. So striking!

Ruth said...

Another reason to visit Norway! That's a clever use of a photo and both pages are fabulous, as a pair and as stand alone pages.

Hello dear friend!
It's been a while, but I'm wading back into blog land. Not looking toward 300 posts in 30 days, but I am hoping to blog a bit more.
Glad to see you're alive and well.

Interesting concept and wonderfully done! Grieg's home looks beautiful.

Sandie said...

What a great idea Sian! As someone who takes their camera everywhere I have rather a lot of photos and am always interested to hear about new ways of using or being creative with them. Love what you did with these, and your layouts are stunning. As always.

Melissa said...

Oh, I really like that idea of pulling another story from items in the photos!

Gail said...

How neat that you were able to get 2 stories out of the same scene. Both layouts look great but I particularly like that first one - I think it's the woodgrain paper that reaches out and speaks to me.

Sandra said...

Last night I tried leaving a comment and to say how much I LOVED the "together" layout, but my laptop was playup and wouldn't let me comment or pin our layout. So I can tell you how much I really wanted to pin it, as first thing this morning, I've logged onto our main computer and quickly pinned it in, my scrap lift it because I love it board xxx

What a great idea to use these little details enlarged as their own shots as the basis of another story. Lovely design on both too. Love the woodgrain and clustering.
