Hi everyone! I’m super excited to announce the first ever “scribble this!” challenge — hope you can join in the fun! It’s a cardmaking challenge with a little twist — part of the challenge is to learn new photography skills!
For this first challenge we’re going to start with what I consider to be the key to taking good photos of crafty projects: white balance — because if the whites in your photo don’t look good, the rest of the colors won’t look good either! Here’s how to enter the challenge:
- First, read this tutorial on white balance.
- Next, create a card that has lots of white in it. Take pictures of your card with different white balance settings and post them on your blog, Flickr, or wherever you like! Experiment, have fun, and write about what you’ve learned. If your camera doesn’t have a white balance feature, not to worry — just write about that. AND, you’ll be definitely want to play in next week’s challenge where we learn about levels!
- Leave a link below to the post with your card — be sure not to leave a link to your whole blog.

AND! Feel free to add the challenge image to your post — you’ll want to save the image to your computer and then upload it like you do a photo. Thanks so much to my friend Mon Thai for creating it — she’s a graphic designer who does work for Hero Arts and a super friend — I just love what she did! Thanks again Mon, had fun! Hugs! Can’t wait until Mon has a blog and then you can see more of her wonderful work!
Can’t wait to see the cards! Here’s some ideas: weddings, graduations, black + white cards, bright summery cards with a white background, or soft soothing pastels with lotsa white. And, can’t wait to see your photo experiments, too — I bet we all learn from each other! I’ll pick some cards to feature next week. I’m thinking 10 — unless there’s a huge response, and then I’ll share more!
One more thing! I wanted to say thanks so much to everyone who helped me test Mr. Linky on this post! If you posted a link to your card there, please re-link it here so that they are all in one place.
Let the first ever “scribble this!” challenge begin! YEAH!
