I wrote about my entry into the world of traditional scrapbooking a few weeks ago. I had two photos of my mother and a preliminary layout.
Some reasons I didn’t like it:
- I thought the paper was too flimsy
- The photos tended to curl up
- The washi tape wouldn’t stay down
- I don’t really know what I’m doing
So, I decided to start over.
To get past the flimsy paper problem, I decided to glue scrapbook paper onto a page of cardstock. This was not at all interesting, so I pulled out some acrylic paint. And ended up with this.
I made a little frame using paper from the Rob & Bob Stamped Bloom collection. I’m still not thrilled, but I might be working my way toward a style.
There’s a bluprint course, Bright Ideas: Mixed Media for Every Project, that might help me figure things out. Here’s a screenshot.
As my crafting journey continues, I’m finding out what brings me the most joy. I suppose that’s a reason to keep going.
