What a fab day I had today- everything I love doing- well apart from the washing that is! This morning I got up and completed the LO you see here. I am joining in the fun at BADGIRLS KITS, and this week's challenge was about using colour to create mood. I thought this sludgy blue paper from Basic Grey 'phresh and phunky' was perfect to set off this photo of one of Emily's dirty looks. I added the pink for a bit of balance and allude to the fact that she does have her sweeter moments too. I really enjoyed creating this grungy style LO, especially after all the bright ones I seem to have done lately. This LO came together very quickly, and that meant I was able to go out into the garden and enjoy some rare sunshine. The weather was perfect- blue skies and sunshine, so I managed to get some much needed weeding done, and all the washing out to dry too! After that Emily and I went cycling along the Water of Leith. It is such a lovely cycle- no cars, through the woods, so lots of shade, which made for comfortable cycling, and as an added bonus the route is flat- perfect. Then after tea we went for a walk, and I experimented with my camera. I am going to start my photography blog to go alongside the Cheryl's course that I am doing on line for 4 weeks. Hopefully by the end of it I will have the confidence to use manual settings as a matter of routine. Today was all about experimenting with aperture and shutter speed and reading histograms. So what a great day- perfect weather- scrapping, gardening, cycling and photography. What more could I possibly want?
