Scrapbooking for the First Timeby Rebecca Carter
Synopses & Reviews
Let your creativity go wild with all the great scrapbooking techniques you'll find here. A question-and-answer format teaches the basics: choosing and using equipment like decorative edge scissors, mounting a photograph, adding paper frames, matting, die-cutting, incorporating decorative and natural papers, working with templates and rub-ons, and many more. Color black-and white photographs with pens and experiment with unusual lettering. Every technique builds on the one before in a natural progression. Try out one of the "project pages, " which introduce new ideas and products--memorabilia pockets, premade pages, kits, and calendars. Bonus: a gallery of professionally made scrapbook interiors, along with biographies of the artists. The author lives in Salem, UT. 112 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10.
