Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

This assignment from Shimelle’s class was to go to one of your favorite spots and take a bunch of photos. I tried out some of the photo taking ideas that I’ve learned from the Love Your Pictures, Love Your Pages class. Basically how to use the settings on your camera more to your advantage.

The large top photo was done using the stitch assist option on the camera. Looks pretty cool! I just love taking pictures of the sunrise at the beach – only a mile from my house. I am truly lucky to live so close, one lucky thing that I try not to take for granted. The morning was beautiful as the sun peeked above the clouds to light up the world.

The letters were done by cutting self-adhesive foam from Sizzix dies. Super easy. Buy those self-adhesive foam sheets at the craft store when they’re on sale, no matter what the color is. The blue used in this page was white originally that I painted blue to match the surfboards. Paint first then cut – works just fine!
