Scrapbooking Discussion

I chose to do a layout featuring the horses my great grandfather used to work his farm to demonstrate that scrapbooking is not only about documenting the people in families but also the elements that were essential to their way of life.

Scrapbooking Notes:

When arranging the photos for this layout and attaching the photos to the page I ran across a bit of a challenge. When removing the photos from the original black paper photo album, some of the black paper remained attached to the back of the photo. This black paper that remained on the photos made it difficult to attach them to the green photo mounting paper using the double sided adhesive. I needed to use an adhesive that was a bit stronger than the double sided adhesive and wouldn’t be hindered by the black paper on the back. The clear photo corners hold the photos in place with no adhesive touching the actual photos. The photo corners display the photos nicely without covering up any of the photo. When using the photo corners, make sure you have the photo corner held securely over the corner of the photo before attaching it to the page. You can lift the corners up again before they are permanently adhered to the page but they will begin to lose their tackiness so you should try to get the arrangement right the first time.

I overlapped two of the photos because the bottom portion of the photo that was covered up was not essential to the history being documented but wasn’t something I wanted to cut out of the photo. I needed to overlap the photos to make them fit into the layout without squishing the photos up against the edges of the page. In the remaining free space in between all the photos I made a journaling box by layering a square piece of the lined paper on a larger square of the patterned green photo mounting paper (which provides a bit of contrast to the background paper). The remaining space above and beside the photos can also be used for headings and additional journaling.
