I would have told you that plenty of times before, I just can not take a decent photo of a scrapbook page. If it wasn't enough that as a learner (and a very self-critical one too!) I virtually never end up with something I consider good in my books. Sheesh.
I don't claim to be a good photographer, in fact I'm acutely aware of the fact that there's lots to learn, but in the years of photographing cards and stuff, on the almost daily basis, I was able to develop the techniques that work well on my photos. Except when it comes to scrapbooks, when to my amazement, all my skills seem to miraculously vanish.
I committed the one below two days ago, and let me tell you, it was for the first time that I was actually pretty cool with the result. Not as in "holy cow, will you look at THIS!!", but I decided that my perseverance is indeed leading me somewhere. Yet, all of that magic disappeared the moment I took the damned photos. LOL
I'll let you judge for yourselves :)
