Getting Rid of Messes and Mistakes in Your Scrapbooks
No matter how careful you are, you will undoubtedly find a
mistake, mark, or mess on your finished scrapbook page. This is
just part of the process of making a scrapbook. If you find a
mistake, mark, or glue bits on your scrapbook page, just rub it
off using a soft white eraser.
Alternately, make the mark into an interesting squiggle or
doodle. In other words, incorporate the mistake into your
creative works! You know the saying, when life gives you lemons,
make lemonade. I've personally created some very unique and
interesting patterns from mistakes that actually came out
beautifully in the finished product.
Here's how to handle some common mistakes:
For mistakes in journal text, cover the mistake with a sticker
the same color as the journal page. Then, just write over the
sticker. White out can also be used for white pages.
Fingerprint smudges on your photographs can be removed by
rubbing the fingerprints with a piece of flannel or a dry baby
Excess powder or glitter can be brushed away. This is time
consuming and frustrating. The best solution is to reduce static
electricity before you add the powder or glitter. Just place a
dryer sheet on top of the page before you work.
