Cutting-edge fundraiser for Woolgoolga High's P&C
DIANE Melnyczenko never intended to become a scrapbooker but now she couldn't imagine life without it.
“I went to a friend's creative memory demonstration five years ago with the intent of doing a family history album with black and white photos,” Diane said.
“Well, that album's still not finished as I run amok with colours.”
Scrapbooking has become a popular pastime among the craftier sections of our society, and Diane is the first to admit how addictive it is.
“I'll be doing it until the day I die,” she said.
“Everybody's got a different style, and if you had three scrappers doing the same photograph, it would turn out different every time.”
Scrapbooking has evolved over time and craftspersons now do 'off the page' projects such as photo frames, cards and even bags.
This weekend sees Woolgoolga High P & C host its next Scrapathon, an event that will see scrappers working on Christmas projects and the like from 9am through to 10pm.
The Scrapathon is in aid of Woolgoolga High P & C, with all profits going towards the purchase of educational resources for students.
