This month I have asked the team to share their favourite photo-less scrapbook pages with me! Scrapbooking without photos can be intimidating, but it’s a fantastic way to tell stories that might otherwise be forgotten if you don’t have photographs to help record them. It’s also a fun way of creating a scene or a purely decorative piece of art (a piece of wall art for a child’s bedroom for example), for experimenting with your image editing software and trying new ideas, or for digging deeper and creating a meaningful digital art journal page. I hope that these pages from the Creative Team inspire you to tell your photo-less stories and get creative making digital art!
I love photoless pages. This is one of my recent favs. I like to balance the page out on both sides so I placed trees on the left side and then copied them and flipped them and placed them on the other side to match.
I love this one so much I’m thinking about printing it out and framing it to put on my wall! I smile every time I look at this because I love all these quotes + Kate’s doodles are the perfect accents and make you feel like you’re at the movies! There is no end to what you can do with Kate’s doodles!
I love making pages without photos, personally I really like those that tell a story using images only. This one is my favourite!
This was for the Month of Challenges (MOC5) in regards to lists and highlights of 2016. The blending of the background papers with the overlays is 1 of the fun things to do with a photo-less page.. It gives texture and dimension to an otherwise flat page. Kate’s doodles from some of the different kits really helped to illustrate all the things I did during the year. It was a real fun page to put together.
I love this one because it’s just a cute, fun story about how we started using a silly phrase in our family. I’ll never really have a picture to go with it, because if I’m that busy, I’m not taking pictures, but it’s definitely something I want to remember!
I don’t do photoless very often as scrapping photos is my favorite part of scrapbooking, but I love the fun feel of this page I made with Big Top.
This layout was for the first challenge of the Month of Challenges. I really like how I tucked the leg of the alpha into the pot by doing an extraction of the pot lid and then copying and pasting it onto a new layer. I’m also proud of my journaling here, because this is a story that I love to tell.
I used a QR code in place of a photo for this interview page. We take a video, rather than pictures, each year of our birthday interview questions.
It was tough to choose a favorite!! But, I think I’m happiest with how this page turned out as far as telling the story without photos.
I mostly scrap to tell the stores of pictures that I have, so doing a “photoless” LO feels very strange to me. But when Kate has a great set of doodles and an alpha to match one of the items on my bucket list (therefore I don’t have pictures of it yet), it’s a great time to start giving my dream some physical form.
You can find even more photo-less scrapbook pages from the Creative Team over on my Scrapbooking without photographs Pinterest board. If you are inspired to create some photo-free layouts, please get in touch and let me know, I would love to see them!
