I've always find scrapbooking interesting, the way how you can transform a common photograph into something extraordinary with eye-catching decorations full of beautiful colors. However, suprisingly I've never ventured into scrapbooking. Why?
People who know me would know that I love cute stationeries but will never have the heart to use them lol.."JUST FOR KEEPS ONLY". Plus I'm bad at art (the reason why I never went into arts stream in f4 was because I wanted to avoid the art subject while most ppl were just trying to avoid accounts!) Which is why I've never touched scrapbooking as I dared not take the risk (I'm not a risk taker) of cutting the oh-so-pretty stationeries and arranging them into colourful pages. I was sure it will not turn out nice...Also, this is definitely not one cheap hobby.
Then I discover DIGITAL scrapbooking and my, my, it is a dream come true! Number one, I can get countless materials, ideas, inspirations on the web, what more at a little or no cost at all. Believe me, there's a whole world of scrapbookers out there. Number two, I don't have to worry about crappy "artwork" because I can delete them anytime and start all over again without actually wasting any material..how nice! I believe I will be addicted to it if I am not already so :D
But of coz with digital scrapbooking, you can't actually touch or feel the materials. However, it will definitely help polish the scrapbooking skills plus you can actually see how your ideas will turn out before putting them on actual paper ;)
Here's my first attempt at digital scrapbooking, which features pictures from the Aug Meet-up @ Miraku. Click on the pic for a larger version or check it out at my facebook :)
Not bad for a first timer I hope... :P
