This time a little unusual photo walk. While shooting many different motives on our summer vacation one popped up again and again: clouds. Especially after I tried the polar filter for the first time and the clouds became so much more clearer and farther stretched out, I found every day another painting of clouds above me. A few times I even shot a video when the clouds were drifting very fast above the sky. They somehow brought my creativity back. Maybe this is something you can try too everyday for a set period of time or on your vacation too if you don’t have time for a full one or two hour photo walk. This way you can focus on a theme for a longer time and lern how your mood changes the kind of pictures you take.
I didn’t thought, that spring in Berlin would look so lovely. Everywhere are little islands of green, spotted with yellow, white and blue. I cross more animals more closely than ever before, like a bunch of starlings and rabbits.
Even more fascinating are the people of Berlin. Just two, three rays of sunshine and all Berlin seems to be up and running. But who is judging them, after this long weeks of grey and dark winter days. Not me. I’m one of them. I enjoy every bit of sunshine I can get and soak it in.
enjoy the sunshine and look for little flowers on your way
Inspired by these beautiful black & white Project Life cards and postcards, I designed my own set of PL cards. Last year I was in a Project Life hype. I loved the possibilities to capture our everyday so simple and fast in a PL album. And even more than that, I liked the idea of creating my own PL cards. You can see my first set of PL cards here. At the end of the year I got lots of new stamps from Elise Blaha-Cripe (no longer available), Bananafishstudio and I lowe Scrap. I treasure these stamps. And they are perfect for Project Life. So I started to make this card set.
As basis for the cards, I cut 3×4 in white cards from simple card stock. Then I used the lovely stamps and stamped on white and black cardboard with StazOn White and Black ink pad. With two different hole punchers (1” and 2’’) and some manual cutting with scissors I cut the circles. For the different backgrounds I used my beloved black & white washi tapes and black & white ink pens. The last step was to cut the corners with my corner rounder of We R Memory Keepers. And that’s it. It took me only one evening to finish the entire set.
I hope you are inspired to make your own set.
What a beautiful, classy and fascinating color combination. It screams wedding when I just look at it. Wouldn’t it be wonderful as a wedding dress, mostly white with coral flowers as embellishments and golden jewelery. Or as stationery or just look at the golden wedding cake. So lovely, but a little owerpowering. Maybe with a few white applications it wouldn’t scream: I’m expensive 😉
