Memory Keeping

I made a little scrapbook with photos from the Alaskan Cruise I took earlier this year as my craft for The Giver. Scrapbooks aren't really my thing, I love to look at them and craft supplies to make them, but it turns out I have little motivation to actually do it myself. In the book The Giver, the main character, Jonas, gets his job assignment, The Receiver of Memories, and I figured Craft Book Club is the perfect reason to finally make this scrapbook!


This scrapbook was made by altering the images only digitally (the next one I make may use adornments). I used a few iphone apps to make my pictures more scrapbook-like:
  • Snapseed - What I use to edit most of my photos on the blog.
  • Over - I used to text and premade artwork to the photos. 
  • Tangent - This app adds textures and shapes over your photos.

Are there any photo apps that you like to use? I'm always looking for new ones to try.

When first starting the scrapbook I had a difficult time choosing what photos to use and what to add to them, but after making a plan (plans make everything easier) I had a hard time narrowing it down to just 40 prints. Some of the prints are just the plain photo, some of the photos I split between two prints (like the Butchart Sunken Garden below), and I added text and frills to most of them.


Our next Craft Book Club book is Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. I picked up a copy from the library earlier this week!
