I’ve noticed that these days, I’ve been taking pictures with the thought in mind of eventually using them in a scrapbook layout. It’s almost like imagining the picture pasted onto a scrapbook page. I still cannot do the layouts totally digital because I’m a souvenir freak. I pick up napkins with restaurant logos, tickets, flyers, brochures, giveaways, maps. I even brought home a free paper from Paris which I must definitely add to my final layouts. I have a ton of postcards I bought, as well as clippings from the tourist magazines available at the hotel. (I should’ve bought a newspaper even if it were in French!) I even found freecards which are a form of advertising on postcards distributed in cafes, restaurants, museums, etc. I also like seeing the ribbons, trims and other add-ons for real instead of just as pictures.
I cannot wait to start printing out the layouts and actually rendering them final. However I want to do that all with the same paper stock so I’m not going to start until I am definitely at least halfway through. At the rate I’m going, that should be before September is out. Funny how I had been stalled big time but now I’m just buzzing through and loving it!
