I am in desperate need of a light box. Currently I attempt to photograph either outside in the bright sun, or in the dark interior of my house. Can you tell which one I used for this layout? *sigh* Shadows abound and make this already awkward layout even more awkward. At least you can tell that it has some dimension. If anyone has a light box suggestion or a diy, I would love to hear about it.
So this layout is the result of a speed scrapbooking session. I started with a sketch from the Stuck?! Sketches blog, and then just eyeballed cutting my papers. Could someone remind me why that is a bad idea the next time I try it? That turquoise circle ended up being much too small. It is driving me batty!
I also have to admit that I didn’t really spend much time picking my papers. The lime and navy work okay. I’m just not sure why I chose the turquoise. I think that maybe pulling the orange from the floral paper would have been a better choice. I think that would have complimented the wood in the photos. Would that have been too bright? I’ll probably never know. I never go back and redo my pages. So many photos, so little time!
Oh, and if you are wondering about the photos, they are from a HUGE bookstore in Portland. You could wander around in it for hours! Yes, I’m a book geek. I also happen to be a huge Felicia Day fan. That too puts me squarely in the land of geekdom.
