Vacations never end when you've scrapbooked their special memories in original ways. Inventive techniques and materials, shown in inspiring sample pages, are especially suitable for recapturing the fun associated with 'getting away from it all'. It's easy to imaginatively draw attention to photographs by adding decorative accents that relate to your subject. If you've taken a picture of a flower-laden veranda, for example, place dried flowers near it. Don't forget to include keepsakes from your trip like travel tickets and documents. Mementos, such as a charm bracelet or foreign coins, will instantly evoke a time and a place. Placing these treasures in a transparent plastic pouch will allow them to be easily seen as well as protected. Small reproductions of paintings and prints of the locale you visited will immediately transport you back. Headline pages by creating lettering that ties into your theme. If you've traveled to Florence, spell out the name of the city on tiles like those you might see in Italy. A single title across two pages connects disparate items featured on each. Let the patterns, textures, and colors of the papers and artifacts you choose reflect each location. Try faux-animal prints to remind you of a visit to Africa and copper accents to suggest the grandeur of India. Use unevently torn tissue to expand the vista beyond the page to evoke a misty mountainside from a past trip. All the wonderful places you see while away from home can be remembered again as you look through your scrapbook.
