August bulan yang betul-betul kekeringan idea dan sebagainya dan September pulak, fuh! A month that everything is sad and nostalgic.
Today something really get me kicking, no it's not a cup of coffee neither a pack of nasi lemak.
Its because of Ali Edwards. I love her simplicity and artistic touch. I beli buku ni sebelum bercuti ke Cherating, for cost rm90++ it would be wasted if I didnt share with others. So today I want to share something from her.
Im not very good to give a summary tapi hemtam sajalah kan, kalau tak paham korang tanya la balik.
Shall we start? Oh belum ready lagi? Kalau belum ready just stop here and comeback whenever you free.
A Designer's Eye for Scrapbooking by Ali Edwards
Chapter 1 - Think Before You Speak
1. Answer these questions
-What is it you want your lo to communicate years from now?
-What feelings do you want to evoke?
:- This is your vision then you can begin constructing how you'll communicate (design) that vision.
2. Vision & Communications (or design) are two essential keys in the process of designing scrapbook pages.
3. Vision (is what motivates you to start working on a page)
- Your imaginations
- Story you want to tell, a story from your family , a story about your daily life , family etc
:- Prepare satu buku untuk jot down your vision
4. Communication (is how you choose to translate your vision into real life)
- single layout
So basic dia kita dah tahu.....jom start first layout.
Communications your vision through design.
Vision : Tiang merah dan kehijauan memberi ilham untuk seluruh layout. Mimik muka pula memberi inspirasi untuk title.
Communication : Cardstock merah dipilih untuk complement tiang di dalam gambar dan PP memberi warna-warna ceria dan tidak kusam. Lo ini untuk memberi Ireen semangat untuk lebih berani. Title melengkapkan keseluruhan layout. Sedikit jurnal untuk menerangkan kepada Ireen situasi tersebut.
Tips : - Cari elemen dalam foto yang boleh diulang dalam layout (contoh seperti tiang merah)
Ok, class ari ni dah habis....senang saja kan? I love to share this tips especially to beginner like me :P
here is the reason why im so sad in September........
