There are a few reasons why I think that look works for me:
- It takes the guesswork out of trying to position my pictures in just the right way.
- I can fit a lot of pictures onto one page or a two page layout.
- I use a lot of 4x6 uncropped pictures, and I don't like to overlap them very often.
One more thing I used a lot on these photos and pages was a thin line of white paint to make the photos or paper stand out without cutting extra mats. In the Pumpkin guts single page above I double matted the finished Jack-O-Lantern photo, but grouped the three related photos together with a single mat behind.
