Making Memory Albums and Scrapbooks
These Album covers were created by a group of Tri-Chem
Instructors on Vancouver Island.
How many boxes of pictures do you have in your closets. Many
of us enjoy taking pictures but do not get around to putting them
in order so we can look at them and enjoy the memories they bring
back. Putting them in a memory album will not only organize your
picture but you will be reliving the times as you put the pictures
in the album and they will be convenient for others to look at.
Be sure to use products which are acid free or archival safe to
prolong the life of your pictures.
Tri-Chem products add the perfect touch to your albums. All
the paints are acid free. You can use Tri-Chem stencils to add
a decorative touch to the front cover and pages of your scrapbook.
Album Cover: Many different types of binders are available
to use for your album. You can easily make a fabric cover which
can then be painted to co-ordinate with the theme. eg Christmas,
birthday party, anniversary.
Using the stencil of transfer of your choice paint the album
cover. Try to coordinate the cover the the theme of your album.
You can make your picture more interesting by cutting away areas
which detract from the main subject. Pictures can be cut in any
shape such as a heart or oval. They can also be left rectangular
or square. You are limited only by your imagination.
Your album pages can by as simple or elaborate as you wish
to make them. The important thing is to make each page tell a
story. For example if you are mounting pictures of a child's birthday
party cut use a number from a paper that matches your background
paper and mount on the page using Tri-Chem's Stay Put Adhesive.
Pictures can by framed but cutting out a from from a contrasting
paper to the background page. Add interest to your page by stenciling
a small design appropriate to the theme on the background.
Once your page is complete put in a plastic protective cover,
place in binder and enjoy!
