Ever-growing in popularity today is
the hobby of
Scrapbooking. It has already elevated to another form of art as
it allows the creative expression of the maker and makes use of
different techniques in its completion. From simple to elaborate
styles and designs, one can choose to develop his own method for making
scrapbook is basically a collection of
photographs kept for posterity. The creator chooses how to
present the photographs to enhance the memories. Sometimes it is
decorated with memorabilia. For example, pictures from a concert
would have the tickets mounted alongside it or even flyers about the
event. Aside from giving enjoyment to the scrapbook-maker, it
oftentimes gives pleasure to others by telling the story of the
pictures more fully, even without a narrative.
Starting on a Scrapbook
Scrapbooking can be very rewarding! It may
seem like a daunting task to be able to create masterfully crafted
albums but really the hardest part of the job is starting on it!
Sometimes we just need to set aside time to do it and you'll see that
once you start, it will come easily and you will find it hard to tear
yourself away from the project!
Before starting, you want to have everything you
need within your reach so that you're less likely to stop and lose
interest. Gather all the materials you need and find yourself a
suitable working area - one that has the proper lighting, a good flat
area to work on as well as comfortable seat.
Ideally, all the pictures you will work on should
be with you, labelled with the dates and other details so you don't
have to stop and look for the information from all over (this can be
very tiring and will interrupt the flow of your work).

little paste or else it won't stick on the paper too long. On the
other hand, don't use too much paste as it will make the paper crinkle
and may also destroy some of your art materials.
