November is here...

The new month brings many usual routines:And some new developments: (If you look carefully, you'll see papa in the background telling him to 'brake brake!') - he managed to get all the way to the end of the path without crashing - Yay Benny!And speaking of new developments.....I get a new friend at work tomorrow...yay! yay!

And here's a 'new' project to share - yay?

7G Mini Album - "A Little Perspective Helps"- I designed this book as a class, but used the opportunity to write down for myself the important things I wanted to remember....to give myself the right perspective on everything so to speak:
Sharon's Super Corny Cover:
1. There's a pair of glasses....cos perspective is how you look at things
2. The glasses have 2 different halves - cos there's always 2 ways to look at things
3. The half that's stamped on glass has a rose behind it - rose coloured glasses - get it? get it?!!Fun Photo Effect to Share:
1. I leached out some of the colour from my photos using photoshop then printed it out on transparency
2. Cut a piece of ledger paper same size as my photo
3. then layered the 2 together

Not sure if you can see this, but the photo has a nice 'softness' to it....and you can see the ledger lines faintly showing through. You can probably achieve this same effect digitally using overlays too.

So....looks like November is off to a good start....got classes brewing in my head as usual. Tell you more as I go along.
