I tried googling "DCWV real photo stack" but it just came up with the normal stacks. What does "real photo" mean? Like picture paper?

I got some picture paper of Australia for my Adelaide trip photos. I found it hard to use but I managed some. Let me link you up...

I agree the photo stack was not one of DCV best moments Try using them to make distressed embellishments. Like cut out a flower and crumple, sand and ink the heck out of it, I find that patterns like that look better when they are aged.

I used one of the Beach as my title page one year for our vacation album. I used one photo of my son and my sister where they where far away and the title and date. I agree with you though. They are more difficult for me to use.

RedSquirrel, those are gorgeous layouts!

Thanks Tam. I was kind of close.

I agree, that would be a challenge, but I'd have a go! I've actually printed off photos really big onto 8.5x11" (ish - that's a US size not UK) white paper and used it as a background for journalling, especially the sky and the water. Those are great because they aren't interesting enough for a photo but you don't want NOT to use them.

hmmm.... that gave me an idea....

You could cut them smaller and then journal on vellum that's laid over the background piece.

The ones that are a full all-over pattern you could cover with 9 x 9 or 8 x 8 piece so you're left with a wide border around.

Other sheets you might be able to use in bits.

Tam that is the EXACT stack that I have. Some of them have been helpful like the wood pattern, and the roses, which I used in a home decor thing for my craft room.... but I just have no idea what to do...... It's been so tempting to add it to the destash pile but hubby would be so hurt..........


Rosey, I like how you used yours! Very pretty!

The sunset one you could cut just above and below the skyline and use it as a strip across the page. The rest could be background. Actually that would work with strips form any of them.

The flowery ones could be punched into flower shapes.

Vellum is a brilliant idea.

180 sheets. Wow.

Must be a man thing -- one day I was shopping and DS, probably 8 or 9 at the time, insisted I get that stack of paper. He informed me it was "HD" (High def, LOL). So I bought it, and of course couldn't find a thing to do with it.

Fortunately, DS was little enough to forget. After having it take up space for a few years I found it a new home.

I do like Tam's idea about putting vellum over it.
