Scrapbook Scribbles 5: Journaling
When I was growing up, my mom took a lot of pictures. Rolls and rolls of film. The first thing she would do when she got them home from being developed was to write on the back of them. Who was in the picture, where it was taken, and the date. This could be considered “journaling” for that day in time.
In our scrapbooks we like to include more information. Perhaps, the story behind the photograph or the event. How did we feel? How did the subject feel? What led up to the picture? What happened after? What memories does the picture trigger?
Some of us are hesitant to include journaling on the page because our thoughts might be too personal. The solution to that is hidden journaling. Write your thoughts and information on a separate piece of paper, card stock, or journaling block. Then, you can hide your journaling behind a picture, embellishment, or even the page title in a hidden pocket.
Your thoughts and the information about the photos are important to the preservation of your memories.
