A Scrapbook Affair...
Scrapbooks have always been a huge part of my life. I love making collages and I love collecting images.
I have recently begun a new scrapbook project, that I will be showing you all soon.
But I have discovered some of my old scrapbooks, and thought it would be nice to reflect on a few previous scrapbooks I have compiled over the years.
This is one of my earliest scrapbooks, there wasn’t really a theme here, just more of things I liked and wished I could own one day. I started this one when I was about 14; I remember backing the cover with part of a Miss Sixty catalogue and feeling so fashionable at the time.
This was the first scrapbook where I started thinking about what I was putting together. I really got into the themes and colour. This one I started to build together as an ongoing project. I was influenced by designers a lot but also combined pretty imagery and my own photographs.
This is a little scrapbook/journal I filled with relevant things that had inspired me. I made lots of notes and ramblings along the way. I also began talking about makeup in here! Which I had never done before
This is my most fulfilled book, 50 back to back pages in total. I had been storing ideas and images for a while, so when I finally purchased this clear Paperchase plastic file, I had a complete open canvas, and the ideas just kept flowing. This to date is my best scrapbook; it incorporated trends, designers, colours, patterns and celebrities. I simply loved this book. The folder was the best £4.75 ever spent. Plus it has the extra bonus of protecting the pages in years to come.
Sorry for the picture overload here, but I just wanted to show you a good glimpse into my ideas and inspiration.
& also I love seeing other people’s scrapbooks, so if you have any posts or anything relating to scrap booking be sure to give me a shout :)
