Scrapbooking Tips for Beginners

This coming July will be scrapbooking month at Papemelroti!
Ever-growing in popularity today is the hobby of Scrapbooking.  It has already elevated to another form of art as it allows the creative expression of the maker and makes use of different techniques in its completion.  From simple to elaborate styles and designs, one can choose to develop his own method for making it.

A scrapbook is basically a collection of photographs kept for posterity.  The creator chooses how to present the photographs to enhance the memories.  Sometimes it is decorated with memorabilia.  For example, pictures from a concert would have the tickets mounted alongside it or even flyers about the event.  Aside from giving enjoyment to the scrapbook-maker, it oftentimes gives pleasure to others by telling the story of the pictures more fully, even without a narrative.

Starting on a Scrapbook

Scrapbooking can be very rewarding!  It may seem like a daunting task to be able to create masterfully crafted albums but really the hardest part of the job is starting on it!  Sometimes we just need to set aside time to do it and you'll see that once you start, it will come easily and you will find it hard to tear yourself away from the project!

Before starting, you want to have everything you need within your reach so that you're less likely to stop and lose interest.  Gather all the materials you need and find yourself a suitable working area - one that has the proper lighting, a good flat area to work on as well as comfortable seat.
Ideally, all the pictures you will work on should be with you, labelled with the dates and other details so you don't have to stop and look for the information from all over (this can be very tiring and will interrupt the flow of your work).
