I'm one of those chronological scrappers. If I don't scrap in order, oh the mess. I don't want to think about the mess. For a while, about 2 year ago, I threw caution to the wind and decided to scrap whatever pictures tickled my fancy. I usually picked a picture that would go nice with a challenge I was attempting.
Since I wasn't working on one particular album, I just stacked up the pages as they were completed thinking I would come back to them and put them in albums. Well, I sort of got on a roll and when I finally got around to taking care of my stack, I had 9 albums to buy. Just because I didn't scrap in order doesn't mean I didn't want them in the album in order. All I can say, is thank goodness for Joann's and Michael's digital coupons.
As I started the organization process, I put each page in an appropriate pile to keep the albums separate. This process covered my dining room table that sits eight... Yikes!
After I organized the pages, I realized that I had gaps in some albums, so I left those pages empty. I later went back and took notes of which pictures were missing so I could print and scrap them.
I refuse put an album on my shelf until it's complete. I'm afraid it would be years before I took it back down to only realize there were missing pages. So now, I have a stack of 5 unfinished albums, which is better than the 9 I started with.
Ok, enough of my story of why I scrap chronologically. What about you? How do you scrap?
I LOVED these color at Color Me Scrappy this go around. The twist was to use a black & white photo AND create a square/grid pattern.
I don't normally print in B&W. I don't know why... I usually like the outcome, but not sure why I don't print more of them.
Here is what I came up with...
The picture quality is actually quite poor. I apologize for that! The colors are actually quite a bit closer to the inspiration picture.
A few detail shots...
