Clean Scrapbooking Simple
When Less is More in Scrapbooking
To make a scrapbook, one should be able to create a visual and tactile delight by showcasing photographs along with other "scraps" or bits and pieces of
events that when put together tells a complete story of that particular slice of life depicted in the
chosen (digital) photo.
Creatively making a layout of it in a scrapbook allows you to add
journaling notes and page topper titles to tell the story behind the photograph. By adding other elements
and embellishments from different mediums, you can help explain the photograph and
recall the memory behind it without using anything as blatant as actual
pages of text.
Sometimes, in our zeal to tell a story, we tend to clutter and create a busy layout for our scrapbook. While there is no right or wrong way to layout a scrapbook, it may be important to note that sometimes,
and for me... it's only sometimes that less is more.
Our layout of the elements we incorporate, however, should not take away from the photograph. Remember that they are there only to improve its capacity to convey a thought or treasured memory and not steal the show entirely.
While I don't mean to say that this is always the case, for
example, a wedding invitation can be used with other embellishments
to create a scrap book page with no photo's at all.
I know from my personal experience just how easy it is to get lost in the
scrapbook page project and with all the items and "scraps" both,
collected from the event and commercially available for use in scrapbooking endeavors, we must always keep in mind that a clean and simple layout may be more manageable to create and
to maintain in years to come.
What looks like creativity to you now, may look too chaotic to family and friends in the future. This is why, being guided by trying to achieve a clean and symetrical scrapbooking layout now, when it's being planned, is a good way to ensure that your scrapbook and cherished memories can be easily shared and enjoyed by yourself along with your friends and loved ones for generations to come.
Just remember, a clean and simple layout for (digital) scrapbooking cannot be achieved by curtailing creativity. Instead, more creativity should be exercised so that you can craft a better,
more visually appealing layout.
