a few of things about this layout: 1) that heavy cream label on the low left is a real vintage label that came in a package of graphic ephemera I ordered a few weeks ago. It was perfect for this layout. Here's a close up I took after I sewed it down.
My brief journaling is written on label stickers from the Paper Source. Loving them. You can even run them through a printer. I think they are intended to be mailing label stickers - but oh, they are so much more than that.
Thing number 3) about this layout - which I am still trying to get my head around - is that I took this picture about 20 minutes ago. It's dark outside, incandescent light is my only light source and I didn't use the flash! I mentioned in my last post about learning what the white balance on my camera does - and here is the actual proof that it works. Usually a picture taken in these conditions, with no flash, results in photo with an extreme yellow cast. Not when you get that white balance going. (hooray!) Now I don't have to finish my projects the night before a deadline so I can take the photo the next morning in natural light. This will make my life a whole lot easier!
