Scrapbooking is an enjoyable hobby and learning a few simple tips can help you produce a more pleasing result. Although design matters a great deal, it is always good to keep the focus on the subject matter. These can be photographs, newspaper clippings, articles and other printed material.
One great tip is to make a visual triangle to keep the viewers’ focus on the subject matter itself and the design simply as an aesthetic. This is especially helpful when the subject matter is consecutive. The odd number rule is useful to keep in mind when working with the visual triangle.
Another great tip is if you are laying out several photographs; leave enough space for any writing. At first, you might not want to bother about writing anything but eventually you might decide to pass it around during gatherings or even give it away as a gift. Others might need explanatory notes you might want to add.
Sticking the photographs, at the edges of the page will draw attention to it rather than sticking it randomly at the page or the center. The subjects on your layout do not necessarily have to be upright all the time. Have fun with it and stick them diagonally and horizontally if it permits.
One page back to back can be for layout; a double-paged layout allows you to have a lot more space to inject creativity into your work. Both pages can either be a continuity of a design, the same design or exciting and different designs for each page. When designing your layout, try to have your designs compliment the subject matter. By following these tips, you can create a beautiful scrapbook
