Studio Friday : My Working Hands

I love Studio Friday.

I love that I can look on there, see the topic, take some photos, and then translate that directly into a layout. Taking these photos this morning took a matter of minutes. There, in those few little moments, I captured four big pieces of my story. Of the things I do everyday. The things I touch everyday. Parts of my own personal whole.

This is a layout we all need to do. A story we all need to tell.

Time to create.

    Wonderful photos! I do believe we have the same coffee cups! Mine are from a red set of dishes from Target.

    Just wondering why you picked the name Simon. I have a Simon(3) and haven't come across any other than yours.

    BEAUTIful photos...gorgeous! ali...(here come the questions)
    - did you take these yourself with your left hand?
    - what kind of camera do you use?
    - what kind of photography training do you have? self taught?
    tutor? classes?
    - digital?
    - what editing program do you use?
    - in those photos of hands, natural light or flash?
    - ok, not 21, but this is enough...could you answer photography
    questions in a future blog?

    Ali, *thanks* for being a life artist. You've motivated ME to become one. Instead of admiring everyone's work - I'm actually *doing* it. I'm participating. I am becoming a life artist. Thanks for the inspiration!

    your photos are beautiful. They are of framing quality! They tell a story by themselves!
    All too often we forget to appreciate our most precious tools; our hands! We so SO MUCH with them yet give them little or no thought. I think today's entry for Studio Friday is a great tribute to recognise that which enables us to create! Have a great weekend! I look forward to next Friday's journey!!

    great photos that definitely tell a story - even before you scrap them.

    I could just gush on and on about how inspiring you your emphasis on scrapbooking real life, right now.....really I could gush but I won't....I know you answered all those questions from a few days ago and now I really want to throw another one in....
    What I am DIEING to know is...what kind of printer do you use?? I read in Studio A last month about your photo wonder what kind of printer you feel comfortable printing your photos on (I am so scared that my computer printed photos will fade and deteriorate....too scared to scrap with them.)

    Love your STUDIO @ this month -- and especially love the journaling stamp you used in the TOTALLY HAPPY layout. I spent 45 minutes trying to find one online with no luck. Do you know where I can purchase a Wendi Speciale Design journaling stamp like yours? It's not available on her website.
