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. ♥


~~ I ♥ bokeh! ~~

Posted by Ania On Monday, December 17, 2007

Alright, first: two new layouts - or well, I made them like a month or more ago and hm, the funny thing about me is that I usually like my layouts at first but then when it's been a week or so I go "why did I make that layout!?".......and I'm ashamed to say I kinda feel it that way with these two now...*blush* hmm.... ohwell....practice makes better no? That's what I keep telling myself when I feel this way or kinda low about my scrapping-skills. Ohwell.

First one's for Pencillines: Kathrine was our guest this week!! Am sooooo happy for her!! :D And her sketch really is cool and different from the others - go have a shot yourself! The photos are from the hotelroom in Ålesund - was kinda "normal-hotel-room-bored-behavior"... lovely Sassafras Lass papers, American Craft thickers, Maya Road chipboard, lil Hambly and embossed Autum Leaves stamps.

Second layout is for Scrappedugnad - we had a fun lil challenge from Celine Navarro this time - to use brads in a fun and unique way. Well that was a nice excuse to get rid of some old Queen & Co brads mixed with some MM and bazzill ones + a lil Heidi Swapp bling in between :) Papers from Sassafras Lass and Scenic Route, aswell as AC thickers and Maya Road chipboard.

I also played some with the camera and the bokeh (blur-thingie). Found a cool lil tip on Photojojo about how to customize your own bokeh. Tested it on my new lil tree :) Pretty cool huh? :) Can't wait to make star ones and test both star and heart ones as soon as the Christmas Tree is up (yeah, we don't put the Christmas Tree up until like 23rd or so :p)

Har lekt litt med kameraet her nede som dere kan se - med ute-av-fokus-bilder (også kalt bokeh).

Normal state:

Normal bokeh:

Heart bokeh! Just...the wrong way ;p

Aaaand there we go;: heart bokeh the correct way!

Have fun! :)

    Stilige LO'er fra deg igjen! Hver gang jeg er innom her tenker jeg at nå skal jeg scrappe mer i stående lettersize, for det er så stilig. Kanskje 08 albumet må bli i det formatet ja! :)
    Og takk for kult fototips, artig effekt der, flotte bilder!

    Jeg leste også den artikkelen, men har ikke noe med mange lys å ta bilde av enda :) Men om en liten uke, skal det helt sikkert testes! Elsker LOene! Jeg håper jeg får laget noe til begge utfordringene, men jeg har vært ganske MIA fra scrappeverden i høst og eier ikke kreativitet! Men inspirasjon står det ikke på! I alle fall ikke etter et besøk inne hos deg! :)
