Default Scrapbook Paper

mom4them posted a great tip about using scrapbook paper as a background for photos... I just wanted to share what I did with that inspiration.

I wanted a reversable "wall" and "floor". I used 3 12 inch square pieces of cardboard. Taped two together to fold like a book, and glued my "wall" paper.... two pieces of the same color side by side on one side, and two pieces of the other color on the other. I took the 3rd square and pasted one "floor" page on one side and the other on the back.

The only room in my house with large windows for nice natural light is my laundry room, so I set up on the washing machine.

Pic one I used a piece of tupper ware covered in a table cloth and propped up the "walls" and "floor". I have one that is a black/white theme, and the other is more neutral/brown.


Pic 3 is my old set up (in my living room) pic 4 is the new set up.

I also frosted the glass vase with etching cream to reduce glare...

I'm SUPER excited so I wanted to share!

I posted more pics here: http://hipgirlclips.com/forums/hairb...tml#post969112

Looks awesome! the only thing that I would change, is maybe putting something behind it so that light doesn't shine through the corner when shooting

the etching cream was a great idea too!

Yah, I need to do something about it. I may run a thin piece of ribbon or something down the middle.
