Happy New Year!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday season and made lots of memories to scrapbook! Have you browsed through our recent Scrapbook & Cards Today winter issue? There are so many creative ideas to get your 2017 scrapbooking underway!
In this issue I shared my photo tip to use black and white photos on a Christmas layout. My initial thought about converting colour photos to black/white would be that I would lose the ‘real-life’ capture moment of the photo. I’ve changed my mind having scrapped a few pages with black/white photos. I love the contrast of the photos with the colourful patterns of papers and embellishments in the background. I also like to crop the photos close to capture facial expressions that are so special.
My Christmas layout as seen in the winter issue:
Here are some other layouts using black/white photos.
I hope you give this easy photo tip a try, happy scrapbooking!
