Newspaper Page

This was a different kind of scrapbook page for me.

I had a newspaper article that I wanted to save; but seeing as it was from a town a ways away from ours and we don’t actually receive the paper, I only had the digital version.

The newspaper website had a place where you could view the printable version (without all the ads and sidebar banners), but it would still print out as three pages.

I made it my goal to fit everything on one 8.5×11″ page (with exception of the title). I copied and pasted all the text, as well as the image, into InDesign. I played with the number of columns and font size until I made everything fit (with a .325″ border that I eventually cut off so I could mat the page).

Originally I wanted the title and everything else to fit on the one page, but after I realized that was impossible, I just decided to go big or go home and I made the newspaper title the same size as the article.

I chose paper that looks like magazine cuts outs because it was the most newspapery thing I had, and I wanted some color because everything else is black and white.

I didn’t worry about journaling this time because there was no room for it 😉 and because I had nothing personal to say about the article, I just wanted to save it.
