Please share three photos you love...
Oh was this
ever HARD! Picking my 3 favorites of the hundreds of LOs and thousands
of pictures I've taken - how on earth to do that? Well, after
staring at many obvious choices, it got simple.
to me. I truly believe that not only are photos the core and heart
of our scrapbooks, but that they are reflections of us as people.
What we select
to photograph, how we photograph it, the time and energy we put
into learning the best way(s) to photograph
it all plays
a role in the final product, the memory captured, the emotion
stirred and the smiles or
tears brought forth. Photos that I love trigger thoughts and memories,
emotions and connections. For that reason I've picked the following:
I love photos that reflect the world around me, that capture the
things I love and reflect my view of them. I love my garden, and
spring, and sunny days. I love this photo.
This is my husband and the neighbor's dog. I'm not sure who is
happier in this photo. I love photos that show relationships,
and love, and joy.
sight. I love discovery. Through the use of my macro lens,
I've discovered that many things we take for granted and/or don't
notice with the naked eye are truly beautiful and complex and
there waiting to be noticed. This little bug is nothing more than
a tiny spec to my naked eye, but through the macro lens I've discovered
colorful iridescent wings attached to a complex little body investigating
a delicate flowered weed. What a gift.
share three layouts you love...
And then I began the
task of figuring out which Layouts to submit. What subject, what
technique, from a class or not? Well
I went with my gut
on this one too. LOs are a labor of love. I want to preserve the
memories, enhance my understanding, and enjoy the process. I don't
have a style or technique or goal that I always apply without
fail - but these three layouts are part of who and what I am.
They reflect me and are among my favorites.
- Inspired by and somewhat copied from Heidi Swapp's year long
expert class. I loved Heidi's push to reflect who we love and
make sure they KNOW! Although the people and things we love changes
with the passing
years, the warmth that floods back when looking at this LO - the
thoughts and feelings that inspired it and are captured by it
- makes me smile.
inspired by any particular class but rather a technique I picked
up from recent trends - haphazard layering and inking of patterned
papers from a collection really makes this LO and eye catcher
and reflects the FUN memory of a little one and their colorful
Well now this just about sums it up, doesn't it!
