Not only does this issue's sketch pack in plenty of 4" x 6" and wallet size photos, it also shows how easy it is to highlight a focal-point photo on your layout. You'll love using this sketch to show off your favorite photo while including several more from the same event or story.

How Laura Onosato Emphasized Her Focal Photo

Placing the focal photo away from the photo grouping, as Laura did, gives it prominence. You can also mat or double mat the focal photo to raise its status in the visual hierarchy (order of importance) of your layout.


Sketch Tip

Draw your viewer's attention to a special photo by isolating it on the left side of the layout. Group your other photos together to the right of it.
