Hello, Candace here today to share a tip on adding dimension to your hybrid spreads. Over the past few years, hybrid scrapbooking has really taken off. I love the combination of digital elements, along with physical elements. One of the reasons that I like to mix mediums is because I love to have texture and dimension on my creations. I like to have elements that can be felt and seen from different angles. This ultimately makes your spreads more interactive and interesting.
Start with a Digital Layout
Here is a look at the digital spread I created with the photo block template in the store. I added a few papers and elements from the Chesterfield collection, and the Vellum “P” for our last name Perkins to match the theme and feel of my photos.
Print TWO (2) Copies
I sent this 12×12 spread to a local printer and had them print off 2 copies.
Cut out Photos and Cards
Next, I cut all the photos on one 12×12 spread.
Add Backing Foam to Photos
I arranged the photos across the spread and picked out the photos that would look best with added dimension. Using the photos I measured out and cut adhesive backed foam. Using a whole piece of foam will add stability across the entire photo as opposed to using just foam squares that can often lead to sagging of the photo.
I adhered down the dimensional photos right on top of the other photos on the flat 12×12 spread. You can decide how much dimension you would like. If you would like a little more dimension you can just double the foam.
Put it On Display
I placed the final spread in a 12×12 frame for our wall! I love the final spread and the added dimension and interest of the photos. Give it a try on your next hybrid layout.
Have a beautiful day!
