STEP 1: EDIT AND PRINT PHOTOS (1 hour)
Another photo effect I use this week is a Polaroid style print to put in one of the 3x4" pockets.
STEP 2: LAYOUT PHOTOS OVER POCKETS WHERE THEY WILL GO, GRAB CARDS, GRAB EMBELLISHMENTS (30-45 minutes)
STEP 3: STAPLE, GLUE, JOURNAL, ADD FINAL TOUCHES (15-30 minutes)
Having a few key tools will make this step easy and fast and have a nice finish.
These pens include a gold, copper, and silver "Metallic Marker" (comes in a 3 pack) by American Crafts; a white "galaxy marker" by American Crafts; and a black "Sharpie Pen" by Sharpie.
This is the finished product after about 2 hours of planning, printing, and doing. Not too shabby!
Hopefully by showing you my process you can be less intimidated to try new layouts and techniques, and to embellish like crazy without worrying if everything "matches" because it doesn't matter if anything matches!! It will look cool and pretty no matter what you do!
