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. ♥


~~ and all this time ~~

Posted by Ania On Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Been listening to some old old faves on itunes lately…♥

(title’s from “All this time - the pick me up song” by Maria Mena)

Pencil-Lines went live past sunday with the brand new design-team!! Truly loved seeing everybodys take on the sketch, made by this weeks guest Susan Dupre :) It’s so invigorating seeing the (new) different styles doing the same sketch – fun fun! :)

I pulled out the “Frosted” line by Fancy Pants Designs for this one – cannot express enough how much I lovelovelove the vibrant, fresh colors used in this line!! Soooo *loves* :)

I’ve mentioned it before, but I don’t mind repeating – sticking stickers on corrugated papers & cutting around it (this time w/a scalloped scissors) = fun :) :) Gems by Prima & KaiserCraft.

Also - while editing these photos in Lightroom I figured I’d stop being so obsessed by +clarity and rather go the opposite way – turning the clarity-slider pretty far down the negative scale. It yielded a pretty dreamy look – like filtering the photos w/gaussian blur – just prettier because the focused areas still remained fairly sharp. Lovely effect – I’m usually no fan of excessive blurring of photos (like, prettifying/glamourifying photos and smoothing skin and stuff – often it just looks so so fake imho), but I can do an exception every now and then I guess.

Okes – off to finish dinner – someone (not me :p) returned to the univ and have late classes/hours some days, so late dinner for us tonight! :)
