We love how we can incorporate so many photos into a Mosaic Moments® layout. But what happens when we only have one photo? Well, those work as well.
Here are 10 unique ideas to get you started scrapbooking single photos.
Describe the Subject
Mosaic Around It
Large school photos are always a challenge to scrapbookers. Here, Candy simply surrounded the photo with patterned paper cut into 1-inch pieces and added the date.
The coordinating layout might include more details, smaller photos, report cards and other information.

Add a Quote
Sometimes a quote, phrase or simple sentence is all that is needed.
Here, Elizabeth added a quote to her photo and surrounded it with patterned paper.
Surround it with Art
Here, Elizabeth surrounded a photo of a child with art from the child. Just take a picture, or scan in the art, and then cut it to fit.
This idea would be great for school work, too, preserving it without having to keep all of it.
Add Decorative Dies
Create an Oversized Mosaic
Surround it with Corners

Fun with Pattern Paper
"Adelyn" by Tami Potter - Free-Styled
If you have a pattern paper collection you just love, create a layout with large strips and some mosaic squares! This is perfect for decorating a layout with only one photo.
On this layout, Tami also fit in a large title, plus a journaling block. Often a single photo does not tell the full story, but you have room to fit in the journaling.
Weave a Basket
Since there is only one photo on the page, Tami had room to create this nifty basket weave technique. It's easy!
Just hand-cut three 1 x 11 1/8th inch strips of a colored card-stock. Then hand-cut or use the strip dies to make 10 1x3.25 inch strips with another color. Once everything is cut you can weave them together.
