Scrapbooking Layouts – Creative Background Designson April 24th, 2012 at 7:16 pm
When you’re making a scrapbook, sometimes it’s not always about the photos. There are some scrapbooking layouts and themes that are focused mainly on text and souvenirs as the focal point of the scrapbook. You’ll either be using your own handwriting to write the text or text from patterned papers and printed quotes and yet, your text may not stand out enough. If you’d like to make your text stand out and still show a bit of creativity, why not use photos to help show what you’re trying to say?
Photos don’t have to be the focal point of a scrapbook. Some scrapbooking layouts actually consider some photos to be a form of creative background.
Do you have a specific photo to outline the text or souvenir you’d like to highlight? For example, you have a poem about friendship; why not use your photos with your friends? Take this special photo and have it enlarged to the size of your scrapbook pages.
Adhere onto your scrapbook and then place your text over. Think up creative positions to place your text so you won’t cover up the important details.
If photo enlargement is too expensive, scrapbooking layouts suggest an alternative by the way of a photo collage. Stick photos in random and chaotic positions around your scrapbooking page before using cardstock as a background for your text. Use double sided adhesive to adhere the cardstock onto the photos. If the photos have some unimportant background, crop the photos to the parts you need the most.
