Idea's by Tia for beginners

I jst started getting into Photography and as a beginner I so wish people would post how they first started. It is not east to go from a point and shoot camera to a dslr. With that said here are some of my first pages for all of you beginners out there. Just remember everyone starts out as a beginner so please keep posting your pages:)

One of my first pages.
Photobucket

On this page I used an alphabet stencil and journaled with that. I also took a pic I drew and added it to my page. For those of you who don't draw you can always trace.
Photobucket

As a beginner the one thing I learned fast was how better my pics looked when I framed them with a color. On this page I did a dbl frame making the first one normal and cutting the second with those crazy shaped scissors
I also got some floss for the word bunny and added some beads to it. I glued my floss down which took forever but you could add stickers to each side to hold it in place.
Photobucket

Rather than just writing on your page why not try some tags. I added floss but you could use matching ribbon. For the title on the right page that is colored vellum that I tore.
Photobucket

This one is a bit harder. I drew my game board shape and then cut pics to fit in it. If you want to do this but have?'s just ask me.

Photobucket

Thats it for now,I will post 4 more each week!

Once again...love your work. You were an excellent beginner. I have tags, but never use them. How do you get the hole on your page to hang them on? I guess a hole punch or do you just use a needle?

The game of life LO is so great!

I poked 3 holes on the bottom of the yellow frame. You can use a hole punch, I just used a pen . Then stick the floss through the hole and tie. Remember to do this before you glue down the yellow frame. GL
