more of the same

this is just a few photos of things i've been up to recently..

making a photo album slash journal. meaning i might write things in it at one point but for right now it's just a collection of all my favourite photos on film (which you've seen before). and other prettynesses (which you have not seen before).

the cover, which i tried to keep as simple as possible. this picture reminds me of the secret garden entrance, so i couldn't not have it as the cover photo beckoning you inside. maybe i should find/draw a key to put somewhere on there too... hmm

and now just some of my favourite pages:

one of my many pictures of sky  |  the lone owl and some branches
ice cream van and random duck  |  an old phone and a locket lady
ghost boots  |  entrance to narnia

in other news (but still involving much of the same), zach made a fisheye attachment for my digital camera - made out of a peephole! it's awesome, and yes i am aware of my unhealthy obsession with fisheye photos

here's what it can do:

a little blurry because it's difficult to focus when most of the screen is blacked out, and a little grainy because the actual picture is so small. but still, i like it. it gives me a chance to play around with the fisheye concept without waiting to get photos developed. instant gratification.

i've also been making a dress - based of off this pattern. i made the sleeves separate pieces instead of a whole front-plus-sleeves deal. primarily because i didn't have enough fabric, but also because i wanted to make it a little more 'mine'. i'm going to add a collar too.
but it's not finished yet so no photos!


oh! and by the by, i also have a tumblr ;)
