tip of the day…
Today I want to talk about pictures on a layout. It’s half of the importance of the page right? (The other half is your journaling….) I think sometimes we get SO caught up in getting the “right” picture we get frustrated when it isn’t as perfect as we want it to be.
Please bare with me as I tell you a little story…..I showed up to my kid’s school for my weekly help in the classroom. My first grader’s class was getting ready to go out and visit with the fire fighters, I started to panic because I didn’t have my nice camera with me. (When I know that my kids are involved with something at school I bring my camera and take pictures like crazy.) Then I remembered I had my smart phone! I was a little inexperienced with using it because I only had it a week. I took the pictures and you see them on this layout: surprisingly to me the pictures aren’t really that bad!
My point is just take the picture–it’s about the moment not about the quality of the shot. Challenge yourself to use the less than perfect pictures, and remember the camera on your phone works too!
