Combining Color + Black & White Photos on the Same Page

combining color with black and white photos

Black and White photos are so stunning on a layout and I love the way they look. I’m also a big fan of bright and colorful pictures. Thankfully, there is no need to choose one over the other – it’s absolutely fine to combine them both on the very same page. Team member Anne uses this technique often and I think you will agree that it is a fun and beautiful way to scrap! Here are some of her amazing layouts:

Å bygge høge tårn er skikkeleg gøy! Særleg når ein har hjølp av gode venner. MT er ivrig og vil gjerne lære bort kor lett og moro det er å vere byggmeister. Ein må vere både tålmodig og stø på handa, og ein må takle at heile bygg- verket plutseleg kan dundre i golvet. Da er det bare å byrje på han igjen. Som vanleg var MT mest ivrig, men det er ikkje tvil om at  også hadde det moro. Han var i alle fall ivrig til å gje MT pinnane etter kvart som høgda blei så stor at dei måtte finne ein stol for å få satt på dei siste bitane. Diggar storleg bildet der det går opp for dei at tårnet alt er høgare enn dei begge.

It’s kind of odd, but I do love snapping photos of cups and mugs when I sit down for a little break. This is my 2012 collection. </p> <p>Credits:<br /> Template by Nettio Designs (higly modified by me)<br /> Papers and elements by Karah Fredriks (part of the digifiles from thedailydigi.com February 2013)

 

Using a combination of different color treatments adds a lot of interest to the layouts and I bet you noticed that the black & white pictures stood out just a little bit more. This is a great way to call attention to some special pictures. The opposite can also be true – on a page with mostly black & white photos, the color prints seem to jump out.

Here are some fabulous examples from our Flickr group (all images are linked for credits)
