if you don't know, i haven't been able to upload photos from my sony to my macbook. they think it's my MacBook...
it seems to be on "it's way out" to computer heaven.
in any event, I retook some photos. not as many as the first three times around, but hopefully these give you an idea.
pages from the book
I'm thinking the below few pages are the ones that are causing some of you some stress, wondering
"WTF can i, should i, will i, do with these pages???"
am i right?
I'm going to finish the above pages, hopefully this weekend, and show them to you and that should give you some ideas of your own.
(that's of course assuming you're having some blocks with respect to ideas for these pages.)
Robyn sent me an email wanting to know how I attached everything in the "Train Album" i had done awhile back. I promised her I would post some photos showing how i did it.
No photos were needed as i could have simply said,
"i glued them in"
but sometimes it's just nice to get good detail and visuals.
But, i did just glue them in. :)
The key in doing albums like these, is to keep viewing your album as you create it and put it all together, from both sides of the "page" so to speak. You can't just lay the album down and start adding ephemera with the "front" side perspective. I add elements to ALL sides, bits at a time. So i don't "finish" one side before moving on to the next.
Looks FAAAAAARRRRRRR more complicated than it actually is. If you look closely, you'll see that each "page" or side of the train album, is really quite simple. It's once it's all folded up that it looks quite impressive...NO?
look at each side of the train closely. You'll see it's very very simply done.
once I add my photos, then it'll look much better (from my perspective photos are the icing on the cake)
Does that make any sense?
"What's going into this album?" you ask...
You know all those odds and ends photos you have of something or someone that you love but can't do a layout for each and every one? well, I'm putting a bunch of those odds and ends photos of Jasper when he was just a wee lad, into this album.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE making these kinds of albums to fill up with those kinds of photos.
Robyn, post any questions here and I'll answer them.
I'm sure others have the same questions.
In a curious note, I have noticed how
F E A T H E R S
seem to be hot item at CHA this go round...
All i can say is it's better than that frickin'
mustache trend from awhile back.
Karen's (woman with ribbon) and my (ladies dancing) 2013 albums in the works...
Karen is the ONLY one that placed an order for the 2013 album this year, so I only had to make 2!
I got to use the ferris wheel paper that i love so much. I could use that paper over and over and over and over...I think I have 2-3 pieces left. I'm sure you'll see it again. :)
No, there are no kits.
I'll photograph the complete albums once they're done.
