This is the first large (12×12) single photo scrapbook page I have made in a while. Actually it’s the first “any type” of scrapbook page I have made in a while, but we’ll gloss over that shall we?!
I made myself STOP what I was “working” on and told myself to just DO some scrapbooking. I was getting so frustrated because I had had no creative outlet as such, that I could feel myself becoming bitter and twisted! lol
Anyway here it is (excusing the rubbish lighting, that’s what comes of photographing something after dark and relying on a couple of desktop lamps to light the way, thank goodness I can use my phone to take the picture and not have to unwrap my SLR camera!)… oh and there is a little ScrapBooking TIP below!
Here’s a little TIP - the black “shiny” flowers are only shiny because I have used a Clear Gloss on them. The reason for doing this was that the flowers were not a strong black, they was a really dark green!
If you ever want to intensify a colour, especially black, on your scrapbook layout, try using Glossy Accents or any Clear Gloss, it must be the gloss reflecting the light back, or something tehnicall like that! I have used this technique before for bringing out some black text that was getting lost in the pattern of the paper it was printed on. It works, you should try it! But be careful if you are going over inkjet type, as being water soluble the text with smudge and run… keep within the boudaries of the letters.
