Sterling Pub., 1999 - Crafts & Hobbies - 128 pages
Stop right here for inventive ideas that will take your scrapbooking to the next level and reflect your artistic flair. The layouts you will create will be exciting and fresh because of inviting textures, splashes of color, interesting juxtapositions of materials, and touches of whimsy. Spend time decorating the first page to set the tone of the album, then make the rest of it more quickly with borders and repeating patterns. Each technique includes designs for embellishing a cover and several interiors. Do you have an assortment of fabrics that you're not sure what to do with? Pick one you especially like, quilt it to cotton batting, and decoupage it over the front and the back of a purchased scrapbook to instantly give it a homespun feeling. For the inside, cut out a few motifs from a swatch and stack them vertically next to a silhouetted snapshot. Enhance your creation further by painting 'dots' in a rainbow of hues in the background.
