Travel Album Challenge - Week 3
It's time for step number 3 in our 4-step album challenge and we are well on our way to having a completed album. Today we’re going to combine our work from weeks one and two by simply adding photos to the pages we completed last week.
Your photos are probably organized in the order you want to present them in your album – if not, go ahead and do that quickly. Next, lay out all of your completed spreads so you can see them. Look at the first set of photos, choose the background you would like to use for these photos. Arrange them on the spread and attach them with adhesive. Now move on to your next set of photos and continue this process until all of your photos are attached to your backgrounds. This shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes, after all, most of the work for this step was completed during weeks 1 and 2. Now is also the time to add additional embellishments if you’d like. I was even able to work in bits of memorabilia (pamphlets, tickets, etc.) here and there during this step.
While you are arranging photos and embellishments, start thinking about any journaling you might want to include on your pages. We’ll add the journaling on our last step, but now is a good time to start thinking about it. Next week is our final week – the week we’ll have a completed album.
Disclaimer: If you’re looking closely at the photos on my pages, I would like to make a few points. 1) These photos were taken a very long time ago with an inexpensive camera and with absolutely no photography knowledge or skills whatsoever. 2) They are still important to me – they may be “bad” photos, but the memories and experiences they represent are “good” and therefore worth saving. 3) Not only were the photos taken a long time ago, they were also developed a long time ago – in the old traditional 3 ½” x 5” size – I am opting NOT to scan and reprint my photos at this time. 4) There will be no comments made (or accepted) pertaining to any clothing or hair styles portrayed in these photos.:)) Thank you.
