Scrapping (and more) with Storyboards

A lot of bloggers (especially professional photographers) use storyboards to illustrate their posts. Storyboards are also a fabulous tool for digital scrapbooking and I know you will want to give them a try after seeing all the fun ways they can be used. Here are storyboard examples from some of my favorite blogs:

Lisa Leonard uses a storyboard approach to document her fun and stylish outfits

Here are some tutorials to help you create your own storyboards:

 

Now that you’ve been inspired by storyboards, try digi scrapping with one! I love to use this technique for a clean and simple style of layout. Here’s a storyboard I created.

I think it would be great to just print it out “as is” and put it into a scrapbook album. Or you could treat the storyboard as a single image and place it on a layout like this:

There are so many possibilities! Hope you enjoy this fun way to tell a story with your own photos!
