When it comes right down to it, I’m a pretty simple scrapbooker. Most of my pages have a linear design. I find it really easy to build pages this way.
The latest page I made as a sample for this May’s LOAD is a clear example of this.
Just look at it! A single strip of stamped paper acting as photo mat and anchoring spot for journaling. Even the embellishments on this are really minimal. Three single sequins. But the whole design really ties it all together with the theme of the page. I read enough. There’s enough on this page to tell the story.
And that’s really the point of scrapbooking without excuses. What ever you do is enough. And it’s pretty amazing too.
