The coffee filter album

I thought that I'll show some more pages from the coffee filter album. (Ha ha, I do sound like a teacher. Old habits sit hard! Bad habits even harder.) The pages are quite bare at the moment, I need to choose photos that will go into the album first and then make some more matching elements. But I do love the colours.

Different colours to accent different moods.


And what's on my work desk today? Not much, a linen fabric is covering half of it as I'm trying to figure out how to take better photos by my desk. Daylight is best by all means, but sometimes I have to wait several days for one that is bright enough to take a photo. I'm not complaining, all days are perfect for crafting in my book.

Visit Julia if you want to join the Wednesday fun.

Have a wonderful day!

Hugs
Maarit

  1. Love the colours in your craft corner - a sort of vintage green.

  9. Lovely book. I bought the same style filters ages ago to make a similar book and never did. You've given me a nudge - of course I probably need something more along the lines of a kick in the seat of the pants.

  10. I love the filter albums! Very nice use of the medium. I have the same problem trying to use my desk as my photography studio. Not enough light!

  11. Vilket härligt album! Tack för att du tittade in hos mig och lämnade en kommentar - och ja, jag tycker att promarkers gör färgläggningen både lätt och snygg! Jag skulle nog säga att de pennorna är lätt beroendeframkallande, men det är det å andra sidan mycket som är när man håller på med kortmakeri...!

  15. I have discovered that I can point my craft lamp across what I want to photo, and I get quite good results without flash and because the light is coming at an angle, there are no reflections.

  16. Hei Maarit!
    That coffee filter album looks great!
    (Now I have visited Stockholm - but not Panduro or any other hobby shops. I bought a Bind-it-all machine already from Helsinki and made some garment-shoppings in Stockholm! I found new Cheap Monday jeans with 50% REA :D They are my favorites!!!)
    Hauskaa viikonloppua!

  17. Violet, the light I have used so far for crafting is just a circular fluorescent magnifing light, so it is not true daylight. However, my new Ottlite arrived this week so I intend to try that to see if the results are better with that. I think the most important thing is to angle the bright light across your work rather than pointing it straight at it. Hope that helps.
