Hello everyone it's Cari here I'm today I'm going to show you my two favorite techniques when it comes to scrapbooking: grids and layers.
I've been into scrapbook for a while now and when I first started I really had a bad time trying to figure out what I like and how I wanted to be my scrapbooks. What it helped me a lot was to look into galleries and to listen to other people experiences, so here I'm to share with you why this two techniques work for me.
I'm going to start with grids, who doesn't love them? When I start a grid layout is a win/win, I know I'm going to love it. For me is as simple as placing my photo and start filling de rest of the space with paper and embellishments, since I started doing this I start loving most of my layouts. For this layout I decided to make a rectangle, so I placed my photo over my page and then filled all the space under my photo.
What I also love about this technique is that you use only tiny pieces of paper so It seems it last you forever. For example this two squares of paper are from Studio Calico Sundrifter and I have it since 2013!
I'll go ahead with the layers now. I don't like my layout to be flat -and this is something about tastes, it is completely fine if you like it!- so with layers I can make my photo pop. I don't normally add layers everywhere nor on everything, I only place some layers behind of my photo, because that it's what I really want to pop in my layout.
Once I'm done with my layout I always sew with my machine a little bit, this has two good thing: it looks pretty and you secure that your papers will never fall down!
So what are your favorite techniques? Please share them, so I can learn from you too! =)
