A Few More...
I am having a ball making this bookmarks - just in case you couldn't tell :o) On the other hand, photographing them today was a challenge no matter where I took the picture, until I got smart and stood the book up instead of having it lie flat. What can I say, the brain cells were not firing too well this morning LOL!
I continue to be amazed by the differences in lighting between the four of pictures I took. They were in the exact same location, and the first three sets of pictures I took looked like I took them at sunset. Amazing what changing the angle of the object can do. One of these days I will go back to trying to use my light box. I tried one earlier this year and didn't like the outcome of my photos (I need to change my lights or get more of what I have) so I went back to using the window ledge. Natural light is soooo wonderful. However, with winter coming, I may need the convenience of taking pictures any time of day or night.
Sorry, I regressed....back to the bookmarks. The top one is one of my favorites to date. Flowers and butterflies, what more can I ask for :) May just have to make myself one! The shoe bookmark was made for a friend who has an extreme shoe addiction. I almost ran some bling up the heel and put some one the "poof" (may still add it) but regardless, I'm sure she will love it :) In the mean time, though it's hard to see, I covered the poof of the shoe with Stickles and it is really sparkly.
I've actually got a few more (told you I was addicted to making them !), but will space them out in my postings, I promise LOL!
