Had a question submitted here the other day about the photo collages on my scrapbook pages. After I responded, I thought I'd go ahead & address it here as well just in case anyone else had the same questions.
As you know, I love multi-photo pages. I also love clean lines & creating a "scene" on the page... so the combination of both can be tricky. My main reason for using lots of photos, is that I can't usually seem to narrow it down to just 1 or 2 to tell the story. Sometimes I don't have any photos to tell the story... but most of the time I have several, if not MANY.
Sheesh. I just HAVE to use ALL of them.
Which brings up the question.... what do you do with all YOUR photos that don't make the scrapbook cut? Would love to hear your ideas. Before digital camera days, I just stuck the rejects into photo albums. Now... they either don't get printed or just pile up in a box. Ughh...
And boy does this topic bring up the guilt I feel for not having/making enough time anymore to scrapbook all the photos that continue to pile up daily.
Oh well... moving on. Zumba anyone?
Here's a few new pages that show examples from the app & website I most frequently use to create my collages. Using collages takes the guess work out of either printing small photos or cropping photos to fit to the right size for your pages.
Pic Monkey is a favorite for all my digital/non-iPhone photos. Personally I find it easier to navigate than Photoshop for editing photos. There's lots of free editing tools on there (as well as collage options), but I've upgraded to pay for the "Royale" features. At this age, being able to erase wrinkles is worth every single penny. Those people know what they're doing by making you pay for that feature.
You're so vain... you probably think this song is about you...
You can also add text to your photos/collages as I did on this one...
I ♥ google eyes.
On the next 2 pages, I used the free PhotoGrid app. It pulls the photos you've selected from your iPhone & then puts them into a collage design based on the number of photos you're using. If you don't like the collage it puts them into... you can choose from other designs. Once I've created my collage, I'll save it & then email it to myself so I can print it in the size I want. Love the app.
Gosh that was a fun week. Love me some Vegas.
Mostly lots of Simple Stories DIY Boutique on those pages. Lots of random SRM Stickers too, including the calendar on the last page which is made by them as well. Questions on the rest of the products... just ask & I'll attempt to answer. LOL
As for the question about my blog post titles... a lot of the time I use song lyrics.
If only I could've memorized all my school work the way I can memorize song lyrics, I would've graduated Suma Cume Laude.
Usually the song lyrics somehow tie in to the content of my blog post. Sometimes it's the just the lyrics or title of a song that I'm using in one of my classes. Sometimes it's just a song that's stuck in my brain that I recently heard. Sometimes the titles have nothing to do with song lyrics at all & then I have a friend tell me they googled my title & no song came up. TOO DARN FUNNY.
You all are an observant bunch!
So read into the titles however you'd like. Sometimes our own interpretation of what something means... is much better than the intended meaning...
