May 4th is National Scrapbooking Day, and before you break out all of your fun embellishments and stickers, consider taking a minimalist approach for a few of your pages. Using the less is more philosophy for this page, I only used color in three areas of this layout – in the title, the photo, and a rubber stamped embellishment. The rest of the page is basically black & white only.
I altered the 5x7 photo in Photoshop leaving only the actual art project color remaining. Then using Club Scrap’s “Color” rubber stamp , I stamped the image on five different cardstock colors and trimmed out the letters within.
After attaching the trimmed out letters with black mini foam squares, I had a fun embellishment that complimented my page well.
Using acrylic paint to color the American Crafts Thickers Alpha Stickers was a good finishing touch I think.
So with or without a lot of color on your pages – enjoy National Scrapbooking Day!!
