A reminder: we are hopping!

Here it is a little reminder: this month at Scrap it With a Song we have a special event for you:
BLOG HOP!
This year two great artists sadly passed away, leaving us a great legacy with their music and we would love to honor them with our works: each of us chose a song from Prince or David Bowie repertoire and made a project inspired by that song.

We are a music inspired challenge blog, we couldn't help ourselves not doing homage to them! We can't wait to share all their projects with you. 

To celebrate the hop, we're giving away some great prizes: you'll definitely want to enter to win!

Have fun!

September challenges: welcome to our blog hop!

Hello dear crafty friends,
this month at Scrap it With a Song we have a special event for you:
welcome to our BLOG HOP!

This year two great artists sadly passed away, leaving us a great legacy with their music and we would love to honor them with our works: each of us chose a song from Prince or David Bowie repertoire and made a project inspired by that song.

We are a music inspired challenge blog, we couldn't help ourselves not doing homage to them! We can't wait to share all their projects with you. 

To celebrate the hop, we're giving away some great prizes: you'll definitely want to enter to win! It is really simple: to begin, just visit the first designers' blog in the list below. Look at her project, leave her a little bit of love in the comments section of her post, and click on through to the next designer on the list. Each blog will have the list repeated, so you shouldn't get lost along the way! After you've visited and commented on each blog, just come back here and leave a comment on this post to win a pretty awesome prize!

Photographing your layout easily

Hi ! Caroline today on the blog. Today I'm giving you a few tips how to easily take the picture of your layout with an iPhone. There is no need of special equipment and fancy set-up to have a nice picture of your project. Here what I do.

With all the mixed media technique and watercolour effect sometime the corner of my page riffle a little bit. When it happen I use non permanent tape and stick my LO on a bigger surface, today I used a "pizza" box I just receive from my favourite scrapbook store full of goodies.



After I bring my set-up to the place when I have the most sun, most of the time I go in my sunroom, the more natural light, the better it is. I put my LO not directly in the sun to avoid shadow and on the floor, I found that this angle make the better photo. After I put my photo setting on Square (carré) so I don"t have top crop it after and I take a few shot.


After I use an app, ColorStory, to edit easily my picture, this app is really user-friendly. There is a lot of pre-made filter to adjust your photo. You can also crop if your need to. There is many other app available for little price.


and voilĂ  my photo is ready to go online !
