help with bad hair day layout

Post by Janet Beckle » Wed, 13 Oct 2004 09:30:18



I'm working on an album for my younger daughter Jennifer who I'm ashamed to
say, got the short end of the stick in the picture dept.  So I'm trying to
make her album as special as I can with my limited skills.

Looking through the pictures there are some that always make her groan, like
her little orphan Annie perm, and bedhead photos and such.  So I'd like to
do a "bad hair day" page...or maybe a "bad hair decade"!  Naw, it wasn't
that bad, but we've probably all looked back at pictures and had to say, hey
it was all the style back then!

I'm just not getting the layout pictured in my head.  It will probably be 2
pages 12x12, but could be just one page I suppose.  I was thinking of
checking the craft store for doll hair, but that's not written in stone
either, I just can't decide how to use it if I did get it.  Help!
Later,
janetlee

Even if you're on the right track,
you'll get run over if you just sit there.

Hmmm...sorry don't have any ideas for you Janet.  If you get some I'd be
interested as I have tons of bad hair day pictures.  One of the ladies on
our group, Dawn G. did a layout with pictures of her hair through the ages.
It is at her website dorkdog.com under "scrapbooking" and then under "my Me
pages".  Very cute idea!

Janet -
Have you thought of Paper dolls?  I use Tracerkins by EKsuccess to
make cute little "dolls".  You can see them by going to
www.eksuccess.com and doing a product search on "tracerkins".  They
have lots of hairstyles, but you could create your own wild looks to
match your photos.  The guide book also suggests matching the colors
for the doll clothing to match those of the people in your photo.  So
if your daughter is wearing a pink nightgown, put a pink night gown on
the paperkin.

Good luck!
