Use Order and Text to Give Life to Your Scrapbook
There are no specific rules stating that all photographs or
mementos must be placed in chronological order. Therefore, it is
completely up you the order you wish to place your items and
embellishments. You can place your items in a formal
chronological order. You can also group items into formal or
informal categories such as similar colors, events, activities,
individuals, or families. Items can also be placed into random,
abstract, or collages.
Each order has its own place in scrapbooking. For instance,
chronological order might be useful for an anniversary scrapbook.
Pictures and mementos of the couple's years together could be
placed from the first day they met through the wedding day to the
present day with each time period on a different page. This
presents a feel of as time goes by.
However, a scrapbook for a parent might just have a collage of
pictures and drawings. In this case, a collage lends to a feeling
of overwhelmingly being loved.
You may or may not want to add text to your scrapbook page.
You may want to just write captions below the pictures. You may
want to add your own stories or poems. You may want to add
journals describing the day to day life of your baby or your
child's accomplishments. Text can be used as either a focal point
or simply as a supporting piece.
Text may be hand written. Alternately, computer fonts,
letters, text, or three-dimensional images can also be printed or
cut and pasted onto the page. In this way, various styles,
colors, textures, and visual text effects are possible.
