“What if I don’t have a clear story?”
A few of you have asked me this as I’ve talked about seeing our albums as each telling a bigger story as a whole. Stories wrap their fingers around both the viewers and the scrapbookers, keeping us both engaged and excited for the next page.
But it’s true that some of my albums are really more like themed albums and a little weak on story, at least in terms of having a conflict that needs to be resolved. (It’s the conflict and the attempts to resolve it that wraps its tight grip around lovers of stories).
So if story-driven scrapbook albums attract you but you don’t have a story for yours, do not worry. I have some work-arounds.
There are things we can do visually to simulate the feeling of an over-arching story in a scrapbook album. I shared three in a video tutorial by sharing two of my story albums that are more theme-driven and less plot-driven. You’ll see me create some new pages using these three ideas for simulating the feeling of having a story line.
