The photo above is a little preview of a layout made with the SS October kit. Slowly getting back in the scrapping groove. A few more things to finish. Also still working on editing and uploading the unending pile of Europe photos.
Speaking of a pile of photos...
I have been experimenting with my packfilm camera. I have learned a lot about lighting and exposure and especially, camera shake. I don't think anything is really good enough to share, but when I get a few that are decent, I will surely post them.
I am slowly getting used to the new blog design. It is a bit of a change. The background behind the text ended up more grey than cream (which is what I had intended originally)... But I think I will leave it for now. For a moment there I was torn between this scheme and a dark grey/gold+olive theme, but I am liking the warm colors better for a Fall theme. The background is a scan from a recent art journal page and the header is also from an art journal I worked on for the Steady Hand Faulty Heart class.. I like it quite a bit. We'll see how long it lasts though...I have a few other things I still want to tweak, here and there as well....
Anyway, it seems like Fall really is in full swing now. There were pumpkins at the market, which was a little weird, because there was no sign of Halloween or anything while we were gone. So getting back now and seeing all the hoopla and decorations is a little startling. The white pumpkins are my favorite. :DI also very happy today because I have just finished clothes (and shoe) shopping for the Autumnal months. Apparently my new favorite colors are grey, purple and black because I did not deviate from any of those colors in any of my purchases. It has been raining off and on since we got back, so I am glad for pretty layered outfits and warm shoes. Planning to get some photos done if the weather/lighting conditions cooperate. Especially of the shoes. Mmmm shoes. Seriously, I got these little pointy-toed flats that I am just crazy about... Okay, I will stop now.
Have you ever heard of Gear Acquisition Syndrome? Apparently I have it. My little Argus got some new TTV friends over the last month that I forgot to mention. A Brownie Starflex, a Kodak Duaflex and (especially neat) an all plastic Bedfordflex (related to the Diana camera).
I love how different the photos are with each camera. I actually did shoot some new TTV images, but they are in queue behind the Europe photos, so we'll be seeing those up in a bit.
Alright, obviously my to-do list is not getting any shorter, but I must be off to bed.
