I’ve been having a great time playing with papers and embellishments, and finding new ways to present photos and make them look even better than before. The blank layouts provide a great jumping off point, and they can be edited and altered until everything looks right. I tried making a little presentation for A Bracelet a Week with a simple 16-image layout. With some tinkering, I got pages like this one:
Then I decided to really make use of having multiple images on a single page. Not only is this a great way to show off a design at multiple angles, but there’s room for inspiration photos, color swatches, materials, or even a little jewelry haiku. I started with one of my favorite beads to beadwork designs - the original strawberry blossom pendant. Once I had the right background paper, all I needed were a few extra polka dots in coordinating colors.

I love how easy it is to transfer finished albums into JPEG folders. Once I got going, it was hard to quit! I gathered up some of my favorite bead palette pictures, and did a little seasonal remix with simple layouts and embellishments. Next, I uploaded them into my movie maker and created a brand new color ideas video!
