Wonderful Designs for Scrapbooks
Megan Flowers Skeels began making scrapbooks for private clients at age 16, and continues to do so today. Here are the secrets behind her success, and the design principles behind her own pages. Through a discussion of space, composition, color, line, and dimension, Skeels explains exactly how to build individualized, personality-filled designs from scratch. In addition, there's advice on drawing inspiration from an array of international styles, period art, and the great masters. Both experienced scrapbookers and newcomers to the craft will especially treasure the instruction on painting background pages, a key element in producing an album that really stands out.
