I have a lady that would like me to do an album for her, she's paying so I want it to be as good as possible. I'm fro canada and I have pretty much never been out of it (except to go to florida twice) I asked her what theme she would like and it's asain, which sounds really cool but I'm drawing a blank on ideas??? To be more specific she studied in the Japanese city Kyoto. Any ideas???? Please help me....any info would be great!
I did a superstore search (see below). For an Asian-inspired album, I think it would be really important to have a lot of white space and a clean look. Simple, yet elegant. Minimal embellishments, very few photos to a page.
You can probably find some great inspiration doing a search in the gallery. You can probably also find great stuff by checking out some Japanese art books from the library. The paintings, etc. in there could be springboards for your work.
as Cindy showed there, the DCWV has the Far East Stack, and it's gorgeous,,,I've heard alot of really nice stuff about it Have you considered showing her any pictures of paper and seeing what she likes as far as that's concerned??
asian doesn't necessarily mean an over abundance of asian papers and embells-too much will look tacky ...used muted papers-Dove of the East has some fantastic papers that you can mix with black & brown cardstock...DCWV has some great asian inspired papers too.
I know little about Kyoto and Japan in general, but i do know that Kyoto is home to many temples and was the seat of the Japanese capital in the past. Many tourists go to see the old temples. You could maybe utilize some cute die cuts of pagodas on a page or two.
