CREATE YOUR OWN SCRAPBOOK (article first published : 2005-06-15)

Create Your Own Scrapbook is an excellent book for anyone wanting to start the very popular hobby/craft of scrapbooking.

Most people accumulate boxes of photographs and mementoes and scrapbooking is a fun and interesting way of using these items to preserve one’s memories. Little material and skill is required and the cost should be minimal as most of the equipment is commonly available.

In her book Annamè Wolmarans covers everything you need to know about getting started, from different types of paper, pens, pencils, paints to various pieces of equipment. Full colour photographs illustrate 17 techniques, and although the craft has already developed its own ‘language’ the methods are clearly explained and illustrated.

The emphasis is on fun and your own creative spirit, which helps explain why scrapbooking has acquired so many devotees.

Published by Struik Publishers in softcover, the book is reasonably priced at R140. It is also available in Afrikaans as Skep Jou Eie Fotoplakboek. - Sheina Wood
