Friends are Wonderful!!
Hello to all my wonderful friends!! : )
Do you notice anything different about me? .... nope I didn't get a new haircut... ok, yes, well... I have put on a few pounds! : ( LOL but that isn't it... Give up?
My photo "studio" has gotten a face lift! : ) I have been agonizing lately over the poor quality of my images! I have wonderful equipment and fantastic lighting but nothing has helped me capture the "real life" way my cards look. I love to create cards using lots of white space which I've come to HATE to photograph! At a recent "stamping play day" with my friend Jill Foster of Penny Black stamps I was lamenting about my problem. Jill offered to lend me SEVEN brightly painted wooden panels that her Dad had made for her. She told me she has the same problem with photographing white cards on a white backdrop and suggested the colored backdrop might help.
Well as you can see it works like a charm!! And get this... when I tried to return the panels to her she would not take them!! that's right - she has gifted them to me and wont take a cent : )
Jill is one of the many blessings I've received from this wonderful community we belong to. She "found" me from one of my blog posts and invited me to be a part of the Penny Black family and she invited me to her home and now calls me friend. My cup runneth over!
If you admire clean and simple I recommend adding the Penny Black Simplicity blog to your blogroll where the uber talented design team will inspire you! If you struggle to photograph your CAS cards add a little color to your background and watch your images come to life : )
Thank you so much for stopping by.
