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
The Finer Things blog uses storyboards to present several ideas centered around a theme.
The Creature Comforts blog uses storyboards to share favorite finds.
Jessica Tierney uses storyboards for color inspiration
Tara is a team member here at The Daily Digi and a very talented photographer. She uses storyboards to put present photos to her clients, as well as for her own personal use, on her blog.

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!
