Canada Cruise 2010: Sunsets and Mythical Towel Creatures
After viewing this page you will know why I don’t use my handwriting very often – it is not a pretty sight. I used this spread to create some space between our time in Halifax and our next port of call, St Johns. As a shared earlier, this album is not chronological – but rather it is themed, so this spread includes pictures from several nights of beautiful sunsets on the ocean as well as pictures of the different towel creatures that greeted us each day when we returned to our room.
I picked an orange and blue theme because the sunsets and our bedspreads were orange, and blue is a wonderful compliment to orange. To save some space on the towel creature page I used a circle cutter to cut all of the pictures which made it easier to fit 5 pictures on the page. Also notice that I used a sliver from each page as an end border on the opposite page to help tie the two pages together.
In this example I took two very different themes and concepts and tied them together using a common color theme. This is often a good idea when you don’t have enough material for a double spread, or too much of one thing would be hard to view. Imagine if I had had two pages of just sunsets – it could have been fairly boring to look at.
