Is your volume up? What were you doing when THAT song came out!?!? 198????? ROFLOL!!!!
I'm going to play and old school song on Friday's. Maybe not EVERY Friday, but I will see what I can do! lol...too much fun!
Ok...my girl Lu is like the self portrait Queen. Seriously. She does THE best ones I have seen. She posted some the other day and it inspired me soooo I decided to give it a go....I needed some more anyway :-) (excuse the hair....I was au-natural this day...i.e...no flat iron lol)
Here is Number 1:
Now I do like this, but the light was too harsh...so naahhh. So avoid harsh light if you don't want shadows like the ones I have...tee hee lol
Settings: ISO 200
Shutter Speed: 1/2000
Lens: 50mm 1.8
My settings were all over the place...but they kinda stayed all in the same area if that makes ANY sense...I used about 5 different actions on this to get this look. "I" like it. Still has the shadows but I STILL like it.
And this one lol....I think I used 2 different actions...
I love this one and it will be on a LO VERY soon.
and another one that is SOOC (no actions used)
Of course I have a folder full of them but I will NOT put them all here! LOL
Speaking of Lu she is also doing an Art Slam Art Journal. I "SO" want to try this....Hmmmmm lol
In other news...I FINALLY sewed!! YAY! I have been doing all this reading and I want to try out some of this stuff. You won't get better without practice right? lol But first...let me show you my newest collection...
And another shot? :-)
You know I love pictures!!
Anyway, I have Sewing Specialty Fabrics, Sewing with Knits,Tailoring, More Sewing for the Home, Quilting by Machine, and Creative Sewing Ideas.
I got a FANTASTIC deal on ebay....$35.00 FOR ALL SIX BOOKS! Talk about a great deal. I looked them up individually and they were well over 40 bucks each! JACKPOT!!!
These books are great. The projects are dated...BUT the pictures and techniques are FANTASTIC!!!!
So what am I sewing??? I am ALMOST finished with Butterick 5038 which is done in the black and white eyelet from Gorgeous Things. Butterick 4812 View A which is done in a light pink/peachy linen. And Simplicity 3744 which is done in a beautiful blue black and white flower print that I got from Fashionista Fabrics. I posted pics of those fabrics with the patterns on my July 23 entry.
Well, that is it for me guys! Have a great weekend!
