Five Inspiring Ways To Use Fabric On Your Scrapbook Pages!
1. Construct titles out of fabric
2. Create dimension with fabric
3. Add texture to large objects with fabric.
Little kids especially love the feel of different textures. When creating layouts that contain large objects, fabric is a great way to provide texture. For example:
• Tree. Use leather or corduroy for the bark, and a prickly green for the leaves.
• Teddy bear. Use a fuzzy texture for the body and suede for the paws.
• Umbrella. Use nylon for the fabric sections and leather for the spokes.
4. Embellish a scrapbook layout with fabric.
Whether you choose to add a border to two edges of your layout, or to every edge, fabric is a great option. Here are some things to consider:
• If your layout contains a lot of colors and patterns, use a solid color for the border.
• A border is a good way to pull colors together. If your photo mats and journal blocks are made out of two colors, find a fabric that contains both of the colors.
• Use your fabric to emphasize the theme of the layout. For example, if your layout contains photos of your garden, create a border out of fabric that has tiny flowers or a vine.
• A border doesn't necessarily have to run the entire length or width of the page. Adding a six inch by a half inch border to the bottom of a page gives an interesting look.
