I’ve been interested in two page layouts with different backgrounds for awhile now. Love the challenge of making them cohesive yet with two distinct halves. This topic was a great one for this type of layout because it had two sides to the story. My oldest and youngest loved splashing in the pool while we were on vacation, but my middle son had broken his collarbone shortly after we arrived and couldn’t go in the water. So I created a simple fun page with some of my pool photos for the left side of the spread, and told the story of my middle boy being a good sport on the right. I kept the second page more subdued version of the first maintaining cohesion mainly through the colour palette. I like the tension created by the divide between the photos.
