Scrapboarding is a vibrant, colorful and unique form of collage where memories materialize in 3-D. Paint, photos and other exotic materials associated with a story or experience are affixed to boards in dramatic compositions.

I ride the waves of creativity and leave the dusty scrapbooks on the shelf. I get out my paints, fabric and two by fours and create a unique collage unlike any other, a scrapboard, often featuring a beautiful travel destination photograph and materials from exotic lands.

Scrapboarding features the tactile joys of scrapbooking using paper, paints, magic markers, glue, photos or memorabilia adhered to a surface; however use of a board -- as opposed to 10 x 10 inch paper -- frees me…

SCRAPBOARDING by Barking Dog Enterprises' CAROL LABASHOSKY
Louisville, Kentucky USA

I ride the waves of creativity and leave the dusty scrapbooks on the shelf. I get out my paints, fabric and two by fours and create a unique collage unlike any other, a scrapboard, often featuring a beautiful travel destination photograph and materials from exotic lands.

Scrapboarding features the tactile joys of scrapbooking using paper, paints, magic markers, glue, photos or memorabilia adhered to a surface; however use of a board -- as opposed to 10 x 10 inch paper -- frees me to compose in 3-D and beyond. I am unconstrained, and do not go “by the book.” I perform a new take on an old song: “…Torn between two covers; feeling like a fool…. Scrapboarding is breaking all the rules.” Scrapboarding has no boundaries, but many layers. Frames and trinkets tell a story. The composition builds confidence. The memory takes physical shape and undergoes a metamorphosis. Each scrapboard is an original artwork and idea. Conceived in the spirit of surf boarding, scrapboarding is freewheeling and edgy. I have submitted a registered trademark application for Scrapboarding to the United States Trademark and Patent Office.

I am a self-taught artist who has garnered a regional and international following through:
Interviews on Sirius XM radio, Etsy and gallery representation via the Mellwood Arts and Entertainment Center, Louisville, Ky. USA
