Telling a 6 Word Story

I'm taking Ali Edwards' Hello Story class at Big Picture Classes and a couple of weeks ago the challenge was to create a layout and tell a 6 word story. This sounded like a great opportunity to experiment a bit and try something new.

Here I decided to print out a big picture on Max on his first day of school this year. When I had taken the picture (before I knew about this challenge) I'd intentionally left a lot of open space with the bricks in the photo because I was thinking it would be a cool place for some journaling on a page. Thankfully it ended up being the perfect space for the large title (aka 6 Word Story.)

Every time I use a big photo, I love the results. This is something I need to try more often.

Even though the close up on the big photo was great, I also wanted to be sure and include a full body shot so the plaid short and red shoes could go down in the books as his first day of school outfit. It's all about preserving the little details!
