My creative girlfriend Candice Windham has a new book out that was released this month by Fox Chapel for Design Originals.
How to Create Frames, Boxes and Other Beautiful Items from Photographs and Family Memories.
To be honest I am not much of a scrapbooker; although admittedly I do have all of the supplies right here in my studio. Yes, I have done my fair share of layouts but usually when I am creating a layout it is for a manufacturer, a publication or trade show booth. Rarely do I create a layout to stick inside an album....I prefer to display my layouts especially when so much thought and meaning goes into creating them. So when I received Candice's book I knew this was perfect for me as it is my kind of ART.
I was taken by the layout, the beautiful photography and the stunning artwork. Then once I started reading the book I could not put it down, it is not your typical craft book filled just with wonderful projects; yes it is filled with wonderful projects along with memories and the stories behind each project. Reading these memories make you think of your own and how easy it would be to recreate some of these wonderful projects with your own photographs and memories.
Along with all of the great projects "Scrapbooking for Home Decor" is also filled with information on tools, tips and techniques. It's time to get those photos out and start creating pieces of ART for Home Decor either for yourself or a gift for a loved one. With all of inspiration in this book it will be so easy to do!
