Simple Scrapbook Techniques – Paper Tearing

tearing scrapbook paper Simple Scrapbook Techniques   Paper Tearing

Scrapbook and personal card crafters are always looking for ways to enhance the quality and uniqueness of their finished creations.  Paper tearing is one of those simple, yet very effective ways to add that uniqueness to their cards and pages.

The reason this technique is so popular is because of its simplicity, and there are not tools required to make your creations–just paper and your fingers.  In a matter of just a few minutes you can turn your cardstock, photos, vellum and other papers in to useful and interesting additions to your projects . . . adding varied dimensions, textures and interest as you go.

As you begin this simple technique you may want to experiment on scrap pieces of paper to see what effect your tear will have, and that this effect is what you’re looking for.   Tearing gives you two separate textures:  a smoother side and a rougher side.  You get the smoother side by tearing the paper towards you, and the rougher look by tearing away from you.

Some papers have different colored cores–some card stock for instance.  If you are looking to reveal that core you may want a more rough looking tear, so tear the paper away from you.  Remember to experiment a bit with some scraps to see what the end result will be, and if that results is what you want.

A controlled jagged edge can best be made by placing the paper you wish to tear on a flat hard surface.  With one hand hold your paper on the hard surface, and with the other hand–using only your thumb and index finger–begin the tear  in small sections working down the paper to what ever length you wish.  This slow small tear approach allows you to control the size and length of the tear.

For a wide tear effect, hold your paper with both hands and tear in opposite directions with each hand.   The speed of your tearing will help determine how much control you have on the width of the tear.  This techniques is best suited for longer paper tears.

If you’re looking for a more soft, fuzzy and delicate tear you’ll need to crease your paper where you want the tear to be.  Then add a bit of moisture to the creased area using your finger moistened with water, or use a soaked cotton swab, or a sponge (not overly wet).  Wipe the creased area to add a bit of moisture to the paper.  With the crease moistened begin your tear–on a solid flat surface to help control the tear.  Tear the paper down and towards you.  The completed tear, when dry, will have a soft fuzzy appearance.

Simple Scrapbook Techniques – Card Stock

In the beginning years of scrapbook crafting, card stock was the prime paper available and used by most crafters.  With the coming of printed papers many paper crafters abandoned the plain color card stock offerings.  Nothing against patterned papers, but there is a place–a significant one–for plain colored paper.

As you acquire your scrapbook and personal card making supplies, paper will obviously be a staple.  When choosing the primary papers you want to work with, and there are tons of choices out there, be sure to have ample supplies of card stock.

Beginning scrappers may be well served to “cut their teeth” using plain colored card stock on their initial scrapbook projects.  Card stock offers you a simple clean and fresh looking paper to begin your layout.  There is less time and focus needed to select accents and embellishments that won’t clash with a printed or patterned paper.  A beginning crafter need only concern themselves with an appropriate color, selected photographs, some journal entries and an accent or two to bring our your page’s theme.

With time and experience, paper crafters can expand their horizon.  They will learn balance, symmetry and color schemes that will allow them to begin mixing textures and patterns in their creations–but in the beginning they will do well to stay with simple elements.

cardstock scrap cutouts Simple Scrapbook Techniques   Card Stockcardstock photo frames Simple Scrapbook Techniques   Card StockCard stock holds a great deal of versatility.  In addition to being the backdrop of your scrapbook’s pages, with the help of scissors and die cuts, scraps of card stock can be the embellishment you need for a particular project.  This also extends the cost value of the card stock itself by making more use of the whole sheet for other than your page’s background.  Consider, too, using card stock for photo mats, journaling strips and blocks, tags and borders.  You’ll find more uses for this important material as your effort and experience increases.

Be sure the card stock you purchase is lignin and acid free.  If you purchase your paper from reputable scrapbook and craft supply stores or outlets (online), you should be comfortable their providing you with reliable card stock.

Scrapping can be tons of fun, but costly, if you let it.  Use these tips to help you enjoy your crafting and help reduce your expenses.

Acid’s Affect on Scrapbooking

What challenges, damage or affect does acid and lignin present for scrapbooker’s?

Scrappers put in a great deal of time creating masterpieces of scrapbook pages and books.  The last thing these crafters want is to have this effort spoiled over time by the effects of chemical reactions (acids) on their handy work.  While there is sensitivity given to this problem by scrapbook product manufactures and providers, the problem does exist.  Perhaps one of the biggest culprits has to do with using “around the house” items for embellishment.

Scrappers need to be aware of the harmful affect acid can have on the long term preservation problem they can create.  Photographs, in particular, are very sensitive to acid.  So, scrapbook crafters should be wary of using items that they aren’t sure are acid free or neutralized.  By failing to pay attention to this warning, over time, wonderful works of scrapbook art will be accosted by the effects of this issue on their pages, and in their books.

Fortunately, this is a concern not overlooked by most scrapbook supply manufactures.  They have, and continue to be very aggressive at minimizing or eliminating this dreaded problem from the products they produce.

The “Acid-free” and “Lignin-free” Issue

ph scale Acids Affect on ScrapbookingAcid is the chemical reaction brought by the inter-action of factors present in things.  Oxidation is one of the prime culprits in this chemical fight.  Acid, or the lack of it, is measured by what is called pH.  The chart shows the pH level for various items.  The range is from acid to neutral to alkaline.  Both ends of the spectrum can be damaging to scrapbookers work, but the acid issue comes more from the paper we use.  That is why we talk about lignin.

Lignin is generally found between the cells in all vascular plants.  Lignin is what makes vegetables firm and crunchy.  Lignin in essence is the fiber we need in our diet–so it’s not all bad; an essential part of healthy plant life.  Nature provides us with a menagerie of plants with differing amounts of lignin;  paper is one of them.  Lignin is not an acid, but in the inner-action in the deteriorating process it gives off acids.  Thus, we want to use lignin free papers to reduce or eliminate this destructive process which could cause damage to our photographs. (Although some photographs like Polaroid photos carry destructive chemicals with them.)

Using neutral (acid free and lignin free) paper is the best answer for scrappers.  Paper is neutralized by bleaching.  Other elements such as embellishments should be kept from touching items, photos mostly, that would be affected by acid deterioration.  These items can be enclosed in neutral sleeves or covered with neutral coverings.

Most of us won’t be overly affected by acid issues if we use items produced or manufactured by scrapbook products providers.  They have take care of the issue.  Those papers or embellishments not marked as acid or lignin free should raise a flag about their use–especially those things we use from around the house.

As they say, “fore warned is fore armed.”
