Well, I had a bit of a breakthrough this week. This post is a bit later than I would have wanted but I decided this weekend that I was going to completely overhaul my color schemes and designs. When I initially started I was using more muted and dark patterned paper that I got from Amazon.
But as I got started I didn’t like the vibe of the pages as I continued to put them together. I realized that I wanted the scrapbook to have a more uplifting tone so I went to my local Walmart for some cardstock. I settled on two separate books. One is marbled colors where the other is more patterned.
I felt reinspired when I saw these books. I began to organize the photos according to the type of page that I wanted to create for it.
I then started putting the pages together. I started by painting on borders and cutting up the patterned paper.
And once I started that I began to add some pictures in.
I still have a ton of work to do. Starting over was a big set back but I feel that it will benefit the overall project in the long run. I was able to partially finish several pages but I still have what seems like thousands of photos to sift through. I also still have to determine what kind of layouts and writing style that I want to use throughout. But I am relying on my Pinterest boards and Google searches to guide me. If anyone has any suggestions please feel free to leave advice!
