I have started a 52 week class called beyond layers- it is all about creativity and using PSE! The instructor is Kim Klassen and I have found her very easy to learn from. She has some amazing textures to add to photos and great lessons to learn how to use them. The photo assignment from the first week was to use her awaken texture with the theme- less is more. Here are the two photos I did – I must admit, I could not stop at just one!

and then I had to try a still life:

I am excited to see where this creative journey takes me.  This class and trying to take a photo everyday should help me to learn my camera better!

I am happy that 2012 is here.  I plan on taking a photo a day to document the year in which I turn 55.  I have begun with today’s photo – easy to start on day one.

I liked it so much, I made a layout for it!  Perhaps it will end up being the first page of my album.

This layout uses products from Three Paper Peonies at Oscraps, including her newest frame set Collage:

I was not very good at scrapping the photos I took last year, but I did use the new Projects 52 no.1  template available from Sue Cummings Designs at Oscraps to make a layout with 12 of my favorite photos of 2011.

Christmas Newsletter

I have begun my newsletter for family and friends- much more important to me now that I live so far away from them.  I decided to share with my family some of the many and I do mean many photos I took in 2008!  Here is the backside of the  newsletter;


Now to finish the  newsletter part and take it to be copied- I learned last year that too much ink is used for a photo heavy newsletter.  So which is your favorite photo that I used in the newsletter?  Do you think any would make for a great greeting card or perhaps for a hybrid project?  Can you tell I love nature photos the best?  I used lumapix fotofusion to make the collage- great fast and easy program for this sort of thing!
