Today, in part one of this week’s series on my Scrapbook Soup projects for season 3, I’m going to share a close-up look at my Project Life layout from episode #9, about using Instagram photos, along with some thoughts about it that are not in the segment. (Bonus content!)
You probably recognize the location – it’s Disneyland! During my trip to the Craft & Hobby Association show in January, I actually stayed at Disney’s Paradise Pier hotel, right next door to Downtown Disney, so I got to experience a lot of Disney when I wasn’t at the convention center. The layout is dated with the day that I spent most of at Disneyland, but a few of the pictures of the hotel and Downtown Disney were actually taken on other days.
Disney is such a unreal world anyway – it’s the perfect place to use Instagram and turn your photos into surreal, filtered dreamscapes. You can also use Instagram to improve a photo of something special that was taken under bad lighting conditions. I did this with my night time and indoor shots. It gives a poor shot an “I meant to do that” appearance.
