Photograph Mosaics and Markers in Your Scrapbooks
An attractive technique for placing photographs into scrapbooks is the photograph mosaic. Mosaics stretch photographs
into an artistic rendition of the original photograph. Maps can also be stretched in this way. This method might be employed to
create a funky look for a friend scrapbook or as a background for someone who likes computers, GIS, or geography.
A basic cropping technique is used to create a photographic mosaic. Simply cut a photograph into evenly spaced squares. Then,
glue the squares onto the background leaving an equal space between each square.
A white background or a background matching the background color of the photograph will add to the effect. A background of a
contrasting color will reduce the spaced out effect of the photograph.
A marker is a seeming obvious tool for writing and embellishing on scrapbook pages. Markers are easy to draw with
and can be used to color in portions of lettering, in borders, or to create accents. Unfortunately, regular markers tend to smudge and bleed through scrapbook pages.
Nonetheless, there are a few brands of markers (Markers Pigma and Color Workshop Blo Pens) available in craft and office supply
stores that do not smudge or bleed. These markers are also acid free, fade resistant, waterproof, and available in a variety of colors.

Embroidery Designs and Thread Colors for Machine Embroidery Sewing
I wish that I had a nickel for each time I've been asked
for the "exact" colors I used in an embroidery design or
for a conversion chart for specific embroidery thread
brands - I would be a very wealthy woman! Everyone seems to
think that someone is going to knock on their door with a
search warrant if they don't use the exact colors a
designer used in the test sew out or the color numbers used
in the stitch directions. Not so - if you don't "think
outside the box" and use colors that you enjoy, or just
prefer, you are really missing the real fun of machine
embroidery! Come to think of it, I don't believe that I've
ever used the exact color on any design I've ever stitched
in 6+ years-some because I didn't have the exact color
& others due to a dislike of the colors used.
