I am going off the grid for a few days taking time away from the computer. I will be back later in the week with my latest Color Suite and more projects.
I kind of went on a little kick with these covered notebooks awhile back. You can check out my tutorial on how to make you own here. The basics are the same but the papers and embellishments are different.
I am going to start this by saying I am not a professional just a mom with a camera and a little bit of knowledge I want to share.
Back story ... last year when I went to Scrapfest in Minnesota Kimber and I met up with the Michele Skinner. I adore Michele she is talented, genuine and super funny (why doesn't she doesn't live here I will never understand). During our evening of shopping, laughs and great food I picked Michele's genius photography brain. What I learned ... get a grey card and set your custom white balance. Per Michele's instructions I got a collapsible grey card similar to the one shown below.
What does setting you white balance accommplish ... check out these photos I came across the other evening while working on a project. The first photo was taken without setting the white balance. Can you say yellow.
The photo below was taken after I realized I forgot to set my white balance.
Both of these photos were taken indoors with an ISO of 1600 and no flash. Photoshop was only used for resizing I wanted to leave the colors as they were straight out of the camera.
Thanks Michele for the tips ... I listened and followed your instructions which if you ask around I don't do often much.

Apparently I have embraced the 2 page layout in full force. I guess I will just go with the creative flow of things because it seems to be working for me.
Happy Friday :)
