The Beautiful Smokey Mountains

     One of our challenges for November was to use at least one full sheet of RTC (ready-to-cut) grid paper and make mini pages that could be displayed in one of the We R Memory Keepers multi-pocket page protectors.  We could choose 4 x 6 or 4 x 4 grids.  

     I had never used this type of grid paper, so I have thought about it quite often in the last two weeks and have procrastinated until the deadline is here (I nearly chickened out).  However, I don't like to be a quitter, and I don't give up easily.  Sooo, I have created a simple layout which turned out better than I expected.

     I chose white grid paper (4 x 4 sections), because I wanted the color of the pictures to really stand out.  I did each section in vertical strips.  The bottom pics are up close shots, the center section were shots which were a little further away, and the top section pics were at a distance.  Hopefully, you can see the depth created by this technique.  

     The element option I chose was to "silhouette" (see my husband's arms and the tree at the left of the center section).

     After taking a photo of the entire page, I then cut it into 4 x 4 sections and inserted them into the pocket page protector (see second photo).  I know this was a simplistic layout, but I like the way it looks for my first try.  I'm sure the next one will be more creative, because I will be more comfortable with the process.

Beautiful layout! Love the photos and how you used all vertical mosaics. I'm so anxious about using these RTC I bought both 4x4 and 4x6 on the sale at Thanksgiving! Dianne brought them into work today - I cannot wait to try them out.

Great job! It really shows the skyline, mountains and trees beautifully. And I love the silhouette effect too!

Linda, the page looks great! The panoramic is stunning at the top of the page and I too, like the silhouette effect on you layout. I think you're the master of that technique from the very start! The white grid was a good choice and the photos do stand out just the way you had hoped!

This looks wonderful! I like Phil's arms out as well as the tree. The pictures at the top are stunning. For your first attempt at this type of mosaic, I'd say you are a winner!

I'm anxious to try my hand at these pages too. I bought one package each of the different formats. I like your first effort - I always like the vertical strips - I think they're really pretty.

This looks great Linda ad I love the silhouette effect. It really adds attention to your husband and the tree with all the vertical lines.
