Photographing your layout easily

Hi ! Caroline today on the blog. Today I'm giving you a few tips how to easily take the picture of your layout with an iPhone. There is no need of special equipment and fancy set-up to have a nice picture of your project. Here what I do.

With all the mixed media technique and watercolour effect sometime the corner of my page riffle a little bit. When it happen I use non permanent tape and stick my LO on a bigger surface, today I used a "pizza" box I just receive from my favourite scrapbook store full of goodies.

After I bring my set-up to the place when I have the most sun, most of the time I go in my sunroom, the more natural light, the better it is. I put my LO not directly in the sun to avoid shadow and on the floor, I found that this angle make the better photo. After I put my photo setting on Square (carré) so I don"t have top crop it after and I take a few shot.

After I use an app, ColorStory, to edit easily my picture, this app is really user-friendly. There is a lot of pre-made filter to adjust your photo. You can also crop if your need to. There is many other app available for little price.

and voilĂ  my photo is ready to go online !

August video tutorial

Hello to all! It's me Maya here with a video tutorial of my new mixed media canvas "Beautiful Night" for you!

I am on the rock team, and our August song is "Because the Night" by Patti Smith. You can see more song interpretations from our DT members on the August 1st reveal and the August mid-month reveal. I was really inspired by the lyrics, so I created the night color background and interpreted the feeling of love as it was felt in the song. So, here is my canvas project "Beautiful Night"!

And here is the tutorial video. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you gained some inspiration from my video and our team reveals! Hope you all join us for some fun. Look forward to discovering your takes based on our songs in the August challenge and see you in our September Hop. It's gonna be fun! : )

August Mid-Month Reveal

These are our August songs:



Now lets see what the second half of our design team has for your inspiration.


This song is such a fun song and my granddaughter was having so much fun dancing for this photo. 


Digital design that I did for my daughter who absolutely loves dancing! These are from her senior photo session and she insisted on getting a picture with her first car, Daisy. {Photos by CJ}

These photos are from the first dance at our wedding in 2007.



The August's layout dedicated to the great Patty Smith and her beautiful song that has accompanied so many pleasant evenings... thanks Patty!
