Earlier this month I had a post about using 4" squares and this layout is another good example of that size paired with 4" photos as well.
This is a super easy design concept that can be used over and over again. Since it is such a common and easy design concept, I added a few things to make it a little more unique.
I create a title/photo/journaling cluster on the two patterned paper squares.
Arranging my title and journaling together and sometimes with some smaller accents (like the photos on this layout) is a common thing I like to do. I feel like it helps draw attention to the title and the journaling.
I also added a row of stars along the seam between the 4" photos and squares. You could do this with so many different shapes like hearts, flowers, butterflies, hexagons, arrows, etc. depending on the theme of your layout.
Then I added a striped strip to the top and bottom of the squares and photos along with a little embellishment cluster in the top right corner.
This layout is based on a sketch from my 6x6" Paper Pads 2 Class Companion that has over 86 sketches designed for using 6x6" papers on full size layouts.
