Scrapbook Photographs -- How A Picture Can Be Worth A
For many people, photos are at the heart of their scrapbooks
-- and for a very good reason. We all treasure photographs of
friends and loved ones, and many of us carry some with us
wherever we go in a wallet or locket or keep photos on our desk
at work. And if disaster were to strike and you had to evacuate
your house, many people say they would save their photo albums
before any other possessions!
So most scrapbooks will contain photographs. Even the most
disinterested reader of your scrapbook will look at them. A
picture really is worth a thousand words. Therefore, it is
important to choose photographs that are of good quality and
clearly illustrate your scrapbook theme.
Any photograph can be used in a scrapbook. Even instant
photographs can be used in scrapbooking. Just be careful that the
chemicals within the photograph do not spill out on the rest of
your scrapbook. Digital pictures can easily be printed right onto
lignin-free and acid -free paper.
Always bear in mind that scrapbooking is permanent. For this
reason, it is probably better to use copies of your only picture
of Great Aunt Betsy rather than risk ruining the original
photograph forever. So just scan the picture on your computer
scanner and print the image on lignin free and acid free
Everybody loves looking at photos of family, friends and
special places. That's why they have such a special place in any
scrapbook. It can be a lot of fun to use photos in imaginative
layouts and for abstract effects -- don't feel confined just to
mounting your photos as you would in a traditional photo
You can find inspiration for new scrapbooking ideas from
magazines and visits to art museums. Just keep your eyes open and
let your imagination run free!
