Two-page layouts are appearing more frequently in my repertoire, mostly because I think I'm finally getting more comfortable working with this larger canvas. I tend to use the double-page spreads to document moments with more photos, lengthy journaling, or bits of memorabilia I want to include. In the case of this page, all three came into play! I used the left side of the spread for my photos, while the right side features kraft bags that hold both my journaling and ephemera from the outing.

Despite the bigger size that allows for more page elements, I try to keep my two-pagers fairly consistent with my clean & simple style. Which means lots of white space and "breathing room" in the design. Could you fit more stuff on there? Sure! You could easily extend the row of photos across both pages and use a smaller area for the journaling.
To add some interesting detail and texture I've created a "clothesline" banner under my photos on which I strung stickers, chipboard pieces, and punched circles. You can leave these elements loose to move around on the line, or adhere them with a small foam square so they'll stay in one place.
This spread uses the BasicGrey collection, Herbs & Honey which is great line for so many summer activities from gardening to farmer's market to numerous outdoor adventures. This week's giveaway features some of my favorite elements in this collection: Snippets Journaling Cards, Decorative Kraft Bags, Wood Veneer, Chipboard Alphas and Die Cuts & Transparencies.
