Do you ever make up scrapbook pages without a picture? I know that in essence, this page has a 'picture' in that the focus is the pound note, so it wasn't difficult to build a LO around it really; although as you can clearly see, it's not exactly a complicated page! I ask you, how many shades of green?! But what do you do when there's a story to be told or a thing to be recorded but there's no photo? Or how about this - you need to include a page about yourself somewhere (and you DO) - but you don't want to use a photo, or at least, not have one on show. Do you do it, or keep putting it off? Do you photograph something to 'hang' your story on? Or would you have a crack at a picture-less LO? I've tried a couple, and a 12" square piece of paper has never felt so big. Long before I joined UKS, or a crop and saw ideas for creating list type LOs or using an associated picture, I had a go at an 'all about me' page. (If we haven't met and you think I don't come across on this blog as that sort of character, let me assure you - I am that woman - I want it, always, to be all about me). The biggest result of this page was that I learned fast about the value of white space. Like all but the most gifted scrapbookers, my early pages were dedicated to filling space and the non-picture challenge LO ended up with a load of things thrown at it. Not to mention techniques. It's only five years old but already that packaging tape idea isn't holding up too well....technically. The page barely holds up at all really, but how my scrapping has changed isn't really the point - it was bound to. See how I ran out of steam and the centre of the page is empty and blank?! Of course, Ali Edwards or some other gifted celebrity scrapper would probably at this point say that with the five years of technique, knowledge and confidence gained, I should re-visit this page and see what I would do differently. But I can't. And the reasons themselves would make a good LO. I've learned that: I don't re-visit pages, I've got too much forward scrapping to do; I'm not the same person, so the 'honesty' of the page wouldn't be the same (dahling, I sound all arty!); I'm much braver now and would probably use a picture anyway; I can't be bothered. (How arty is that!) Come on then, share with me - would you do a picture-less LO at all and if you would, what's the approach? Have you already done so? Will you share a picture? Will you let the rest of us (me) copy it flagrantly?
