The FotoInspired Stats

A total of just 3 double-page spreads.

  • COVID definitely slowed me down this month but I definitely made a point of capturing a few photos on the tail end of our illness.
  • We celebrated our exit from quarantine and feeling well again with brunch.
  • Prior to that we celebrated Delaney and her nomination as this year’s ‘Wish Kid’ at the High School.
  • And the snow has FINALLY arrived in Colorado – It has been quite the wait!

Here are my layouts plus some thoughts on ‘Working with Fewer Photos.’

February 2021

Weeks 5 and 6 | Delaney’s ‘Make a Wish’ plus COVID Weeks 7 | More COVID Details, Valentine’s Day and Post Quarantine Brunch. Week 8 | Snow + Skiing

Working With Fewer Photos

There are months where the photos are more ‘sparse’ than usual.

  • Just work with WHAT you have in any given month.
  • Photo-taking is often a REFLECTION of your life at any given time.
  • The are EBBS such as stress, illness or lacking desire.
  • Then there are times when the process FLOWS more easily and you feel more inspired.
  • Remember that it’s ALL part of the process.

The Advantages of Fewer Photos:

  • There are fewer layouts to DESIGN.
  • You can FOCUS more on the journaling
  • Play with adding MORE DigitalART to your digital scrapbooking pages.
  • The process takes a lot LESS time.

Guidance for working with Fewer Photos.

1. Choose the Right Template

2. Modify a FotoInspired Template

  • Replace multiple masks with a SINGLE mask from another template.
  • DUPLICATE text boxes, reposition and size to accommodate your journaling.
  • Remove (or add if needed) any frames that OVERLAP larger underlying masks.

3. Adding the Photos

  • Spread your images across BOTH pages.
  • SPACE out the photos with the SAME colors and subject matter to create BALANCE.
  • Leave PLENTY of empty masks between SIMILAR images.

4. Embellishing with DigitalART

5. Journaling

  • Tell more of the STORY by filling BOTH masks and frames with MORE words.
  • Duplicate EXISTING textboxes to create new ones.
  • Create a Title Focal Point by placing WordART over an Artsy Paper or ArtsyKardz clipped to a mask.


Note. Don’t sweat the small stuff!
