For my project I decided to try the Boken technique on a full 12x12 page. This was very time consuming but I think the effect was totally worth my time. I used Lagoon and Cotton Candy Ink and sponged over the paper in a random pattern. Then having cut circles in various sizes to create a template, I sponged these circles, using White Daisy Pigment Ink, randomly so that it creates a sort of bubble like appearance. Some circles I kept almost opaque and others I really layered the ink on. You can also see that there are bubbles ontop of bubbles. I really love how this layout came out, and I've also carried the colors into the stamped images.
My photo mats are 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and will hold 4 x 4 photos. If you did not want to use mats, then you could use 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 photos, you could also double mat the photo spaces.
