The Beauty of a Scrapbook
The Beauty of a Scrapbook
Life presents us with many memories, both good and bad. The good memories may leave us brimming ear to ear in a joyous smile, while the bad ones a sadness in our hearts. And memories have the funny tendency to occur when it is least expected.
Keeping pictures of events in life is one way to keep those memories alive. Joyous moments and special occasions such as field trips, holidays, vacations, birthdays, graduations, weddings, and many other occasions often captured in photographs. Further, these photos keep the memory of the event or circumstance alive, and give others who are able to look at the photos a brief glimpse of the scene and ability to share, to a degree, some of the emotion around the photos. So the question arises: “Do you want to let these special photos lie still in plain and traditionally-looking photo albums? Or do you want to really spice them up? How about using a Scrapbook to house your precious photos.
You don’t have to be an expert at taking photos or even an experienced artist to create these scrapbooks. All you really need is a concept to express your idea, a design to house your ideas, and your precious photos to fit into your design.
Scrapbooking allows you to keep the memories alive with the use of poems, quotes, love songs, or simple statements expressing your feeling to the person or events as captions for your photos. In this manner, your most intimate feelings will be kept alive in your work of artistry.
When journaling the events surrounding your photos, you may recall some funny or memorable incident about the photo that you may include to make the caption more expressive and alive. Colors also play a great role in your scrapbook. Softer colors such as cream and blue or silver and gold are mostly used. These colors make the pages of the scrapbook more attractive and lively.
A scrapbook is perfect for capturing times of joy and love in your life. For example, your scrapbook may serve as memorabilia of the items such as cards, love letters, restaurant menu dined at, concerts attended, dried flowers, and many other things which you and your loved one have given to each other. Another example is a question and answer portion that you and your loved one ca answer in the scrapbook. The questions may revolve around your favorite food, pet peeves, traditions, future goals, favorite pastimes, and the things which you mostly agree and disagree on. Scrapbooking is a quick and easy method for recording special memories that you and your loved one share. And creating the scrapbook can be great fun as well.
Before starting your scrapbook, first get all the pictures that you will include in your work. Then, chronologically sort them out by date. Before pasting the photos, make sure that you’ve already conceptualized the sequence of those as they will appear in the pages. Once in a while, put in artistic embellishments to the pages. Never fail to include the captions too. Do this all throughout the pages of the scrapbook. By carefully following the ins and outs of the steps, you are on your way to creating your beautiful scrapbook
