Remember back at the beginning of December when I said I was taking a "12 Days of Christmas" photography class? Well, this collage is my final project, showcasing eight of the twelve techniques taught in class. I'm so happy with the way it turned out! I think I'm going to turn this collage into a scrapbook page! I learned two important things on my camera in the course of this class - how to set the white balance and how to change the focal points. I was hoping for more of those type of specific things - which buttons to push for what effects. Despite that, I loved the class and I definitely think my photos were a bit better this Christmas! I still have editing to do to get them ready for scrapping and sharing. Guess that will come soon enough.
And this is the Christmas postcard that I made. In addition to cards that went to 30 something folks here in the states, I sent 10 postcards to friends in other countries. I hope you all got them! I used a portion of Krystal Hartley's new Mixed Media Mashups #1 as a template to get me started and the papers all came from an older kit by Aja Abney Designs called Christmas Shimmer Patterns for which I can't find a current link. I had a lot of fun "playing" to put this together.
