How to make this layout

  1. Use white textured cardstock for page canvas.
  2. Mount a wide strip boldly patterned paper at page top. Layer a narrow dark strip of ribbon or paper at the lower edge of this strip.  [Optional: add brushwork or paint splatters to spill out just a bit beneath this band.]
  3. Convert 4 portrait-oriented photos to black and white and trim or edit to include narrow white mat.
  4. Cluster the photos over the patterned paper band. Tilt some of the photos. Bleed all of them off the top edge of the page.
  5. Group title and journaling in a block at lower right on the canvas.
  6. Embellish title.
