Adding Color to Vellum

Want to add just a touch of color to your vellum? Instead of placing the color on the front side of your vellum paper, place the color on the backside of your paper. Markers, pens, pencils, ink pads and chalks work great on vellum. Try applying chalk with these four tools: q-tip, cotton ball, make up sponge and a pom-pom. You will be surprised by how much difference there is in the look of the chalk on the vellum paper. Some individuals choose to use a spray seal when using chalks – I personally never have and years later they still look great! - Sara Spaun

15 Tips To Quality Scrapbooking

a multi-part series by H T Parker, Jr

Tip 5. Often photographs aren't quite the right shape and size or the photographic image is improperly centered. Having oversized or off centered photographs appears unprofessional. A carefully trimmed and sized photograph, on the other hand, enhances the overall look and feel of your scrapbook.

There are two ways to solve these problems. The low tech way to solve these problems are to manually crop (cut) and shape the photograph using a pair of scissors or an exacto knife. If you are manually cropping and cutting pictures, make sure that you mark the outline you want with chalk before you cut.

To manually change a distracting or cluttered background simply cut out the background and replace it with a new paper background. This allows the eye to focus on the people instead of the clutter behind them.

The high tech solution to your photograph woes is to use a modern computer programs. Using these programs, photographs can be magically darkened, lightened, sharpened, enlarged, and cropped without ruining your original photograph. Some programs even allow you to change the background of the photograph.
