Ellen Trout Zoo

The Day 7 challenge in The 20 Project class was to use landscape and portrait orientation photos together on a layout . . . happily. If you follow Shimelle, you know that she typically uses photos that are the same orientation, so it was FUN to watch her put together a video using two different photos.

For my layout, I ended up using one landscape photo, one portrait photo, and six small square photos from a visit to the zoo in Lufkin earlier this year.

I created two little embellishment clusters and used the photo of the sign as my title block.

Do you combine portrait and landscape photos on your layouts?


  1. I love the idea of using the strip of small photos down the side! Great idea.

  2. I so rarely turn my camera round..all my pictures are landscape! Though I have more square ones now I use my phone too. I'm another one who likes the strip of little details down the side

  3. Yes, I often combine the two - I ensure that I turn my camera/phone around to get some in each direction. Especially when I know I'm going to scrap. If I've forgotten, I often will crop the photo to ensure I have a combination.

  4. You've managed to get a lot of photos on here! That turtle is very cute. The pink is such a happy colour ... Yes, I almost always have a mix of portrait and landscape on my pages.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
