Most times the focal point of our Scrapbook Layout is the photo (although I have written previously about using journaling as your focal point).
But let’s be honest, the majority of our scrapbooking layouts are to showcase one or more photos. And the subject matter of the photos tends to be those that are dear to us: our family and friends.
So here’s the thing.
Do you scrapbook photos that don’t have people in them?
Now I don’t count pets in this. To my mind pets are just kids without the electronic toys. And I group them under family.
But do you scrapbook photos of Nature?
I mean photos of wild animals (well, let’s say animals that are not tame ones anyway). Or a beautiful rose on a bush. Or a magnificent landscape.
Scrapbook layouts of topics like this are so refreshing and make a great resting place for the eye when viewing your album.
So today’s scrapbook idea is to create a layout scrapbooking nature.
Post your layout on your blog and leave a link in the comment section of this post.
If I get enough links I’ll do another post in a couple of weeks with all the nature layout links so all Scraps of Mind Readers can visit and enjoy them.
The ‘So Who Was Bringing the Potato Salad’ layout is of three parakeets settling down to a feed at Allan’s high rise feeding dish (a popular restaurant amongst the local birdlife).
