During my daughter's first trip to an art museum, I took a number of pictures I thought were really funny of her looking at art. I decided to make these into an art museum layout, and I wanted to actually make the layout look sort of like an art museum. So I made little signs I printed on cardstock (ex. "The Gallery is Open") and I made frames and title cards for each of the photos of my daughter.
I had too many pictures for just a 2 page layout, so each side opens where the ribbon is to reveal more photos inside. I did this by using 4 sheets of plain white cardstock. Sometimes the clear pockets I use in my scrapbook come with plain white cardstock in them, and I thought this was a perfect way to use it. I measured about a third of the way from the edge of each page and glued the 2 pieces of cardstock together. I used the ribbon to hide the seam. This is the right side of the layout when opened:
This is the left side opened. To make it look more like an art museum, I found silhouettes of people on google images and cut them out using black cardstock. These are meant to be the people looking at the gallery of pictures of my daughter.
I used some recycled materials for this project. I used the information guide from the art museum to cut out the letters "ART" using the Sans Serif cartridge. I also used the bag from the gift shop to make the title on the left front of the layout. I thought this was a fun way to use memorabilia from the trip.
To really make the art museum "look", my hubby and I came up with funny, baby-related names for the art pieces. Some examples are below.
