Introduction: The Scrapbooking
The scrapbooking is a shape of creative leisure consisting in introducing photos into a decoration in touch with the tackled issue, with the aim of emphasizing them by a presentation more original than a simple album photo.
Step 1: The Materials :
First of all it is necessary to us to choose a support, the interest of the scrapbooking is that he can apply to any support or surfaces as an album photo, one to read, an exercise book. From then on I chose as support as my project several pictures of various sizes. So the pictures of smaller size which will be placed on the big picture will allow to put of the relief in the picture and will put in front of photos or objects.
One of the techniques of the scrapbooking is to cover objects by means of special, united papers or with motives to color. So for this picture, I chose papers with as motives for stripes, floors, peas, candies, or wooden toys. I also chose the other materials which can cover objects as, crêpe paper or lightweight felt. To play with the materials, the textures return the playful scrapbooking. Obviously it’s important that the colors of its various materials get married well so that the result is homogeneous, aesthetic. In this picture I chose as color: the blue, the green and the orange.
The main technique of the scrapbooking consists in adding small objects and stickers always in keeping, of course, with the theme and to the color code of our composition. So I chose, objects such as: a heart in polystyrene to be decorated, small pencils, of pins, a small box, some small wooden objects appropriate for the childish universe. Moreover I decide to add it stickers, and transfers making reference to the childhood (representing child's pacifiers, cuddly toys, rattles), or to the person to whom I am going to offer it.
The purpose of the scrapbooking being to emphasize photos in a set having the same theme as these, we need sure photos!
Finally, to realize the composition, we need various utensils as, scissors, liquid glue, glue for paper (varnished glue), a brush to those there I added some ribbons which can also contribute to the realization of the picture.
Step 6: Stage 1: the Realization of the Bottom of the Main Support, the Big Picture.
As I previously explained it, to cover the supports of papers is an appropriate technique of the scrapbooking. For this technique, we have to glue, that is, that we have to apply, by means of a brush, some glue for paper to the support. Then we shall arrange every piece of paper one by one that we shall cover with a new layer of glue what will give an effect varnish to the paper. So the result will be brilliant.
Let dry a few moments.
Step 7: Stage 2 : Decoration of Objects.
Within this stage we are going to personalize objects such as the heart, the girl limps, a small and average painting.
Realization of the heart: we applied, with the already used technique, some red paper to make the bottom. Once it dry, us added transfers to personalize the object.
Realization of the box: we applied some green paper for the backside part and some blue paper for the front of the box. Then, we applied a transfer representing a mouse, so this box could serve to put the first milk tooth of the baby in photo
Realization of the small picture: we simply applied the paper with the motives for candies.
Realization of the average picture: we applied some orange paper to make the bottom, and then we arranged stickers on the theme of toys.
Step 8: Stage 3 : the Assembly.
For this stage there are neither explanations nor particular advice to be given. This stage is appropriate for each, each has to assemble his objects beforehand decorated and personalized, according to one’s tastes, one’s ideas.
Then leave free court with your imagination and express your creativity!
