Just in time it’s week Forty Nine!
Oh week 49. I had some … what shall I call them? … photographic challenges this week. Reflection, shadows everything was working against me. I realise now I will need to come up with a better and consistent solution for where I photograph my pages. It takes far too long and to be honest I still don’t love the result but, I’m rambling.
Let’s get on with it shall we?
I don’t have a proper, full, double page layout shot for you this week. Sorry. It was either this or it would be Christmas before week 49 made it here…. haha.. luckily that’s only a couple of weeks away now.
Here is the close up of the left. It was this week that I received the happy mail from Becky Higgins about my success in making the 2013 CT. The rest, as they say, is history. (Now the cat is out of the bag I can actually post this week too)
This is the right. For starters I learned something this week. (not hard really) As I venture further into printing on the delicious Becky Higgins textured cards I realised that white in photos comes from the paper you print on not the inks. It seems obvious right?
I foolishly attempted to print “white” onto these green cards. Suffice to say the printer obliged but the result was a blank card. Yes friends this was my lesson. You cannot print in white. (I am sure there are some white ink printers out there… but mine is not it.)
PS Yes. I do see that typo. It’s now fixed in the physical photo.
Since I don’t have a proper full layout picture this week I thought it would be nice to focus on a couple of my favourite bits. First up is this close up of a little Aussie Christmas jingle my kids have successfully etched into my permanent memory. Printed on the textured cards mentioned earlier and my favourite part the title. This came from the collaboration of Jodie at Polkadot Creative and Kellie at Give a Girl a Blog. It’s simple, it’s earthy and it’s Aussie. Love it.
Finally this picture of Calvin playing his DS under the christmas tree. It’s not about the layout or the elements. I just love everything about this little moment.
Hope I didn’t ramble on too much (I can be prone to).
Thanks For Dropping In
