Get off the cross we need the wood

About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.

My Scrapbooking

Been scrapbooking since late fall 2005. Currently fortunate enough to be a part of the design teams for Hambly Screenprints, Fancy Pants Designs and Pencil-Lines. ♥


~~ Em's card & a minialbum ~~

Posted by Ania On Wednesday, April 11, 2007

My card for this weeks promt; "Bird". Well. I don't really have any relationship with birds, but uhm, you know.. giving someone the bird? Well. I guess I gotta confess I've done so at least twice the last three weeks. It's silly I know. It's patetic and so childish and so...primitive....and very very rude.. but yeah...when driving...when other people do stupid things (I never do stupid things when driving, nooononooo *cough* *winkwink*) I can be pretty hotheaded and if pissed off enough I may show someone the finger. Ridiculous and I'm tryin to stop that - imagine if the other person really saw that and I knew him/her. How embarrassing! I never do so when the kids are around or when Simen is with me. He thinks I'm silly for being annoyed with other people when driving. And he's so right. But jeez some people are just so stupid. And some acts just annoys me :p
Now. Having a card showing the bird woudln't be very nice, so I just made a nice birdiecard with a minienvelope with the note inside. Stop flippin' the finger. Pronto. The envelope is made with a BG magnetic snap to keep it closed.

Anyways. Gonna teach scrapbooking in Stavanger this saturday - a beginners class plus a minialbumclass. Ofcourse all my minialbums of this kind was given away for Christmas, and I haven't taught this class since, so I had to make a new one. With Scarlets Letter! Amazing. First time ever using the papers. Wee! This one will be pretty simple - it'll just showcase my uh..practicephotos...non-kid-one for now...just pictures of stuff like the chair and gate and stuff. The title is a kinda tribute to my fave photoblog these days. And I thought it sounded very cool :p Oh, adding a smaller minialbum from Christmas that I haven't shown before. Yay. And stuff.

Ps. Thanks to Roth for this very interesting read. Take a famous virtuoso and have him act like a street musician playing on his 3.5mill$ Stradivari; will the passerbys recognize the quality of the music?

Viser noen bilder av minialbumet jeg lagde til lørdagens minialbumkurs i Stavanger (bilde 2-3). Alle de gamle av denne typen var gitt vekk, så måtte lage en ny en. Er litt fantasiløs for tiden så det blir en ganske enkel en - en slags fotografibok der bildene står i sentrum. Øver meg på å bli en bedre fotograf og noen ganger er det litt ok å ha et sted å vise de bedre bildene på liksom. Derfor er det ikke så mye stæsj på denne inni da. Tar også med meg en mindre minibok til inspirasjon - en som er mer pyntet inni - men det er den store vi skal lage på kurset.
