Ideas for a Mother’s Day photo book

Mother's Day photo book idea 1

It’s a shame to leave the children’s painting posted on the fridge. Save them in a photo book instead. Discover how to combine water colour background designs and ‘brush stroke’ masks to display it beautifully.

Recreate this in 4 easy steps

1. The first step is to add water colour backgrounds to both pages. As a rule of thumb, it’s always good to select background colours that complement those of your photos.

2. Then add pin designs to the left page (see below) by using the Frame design. Click on the left page, go to Insert > Frame > click the ‘Children-baby boy‘ drop down menu to select and apply the pin designs.

3. Once this is done, simply add your photos by dragging and dropping them onto the pages. Use the image placeholders (green line framing each photo) to match the layout as seen below.

4. Then apply ‘Movie Mask‘ designs over your photos to create that super nice ‘paint brush stroke’ effect over each photo. Click on the right page, go to Insert > Mask > click the ‘Albelli classics‘ drop down menu and select the matching mask design. Select and apply ‘Movie‘ mask design for the left page.
