Week of August 24th
Challenge : Monochromatic suggested by GillianIvy
Cyanotype, selenium and sepia coated coffee stains, black & white and greyscale... So many shades of monoshade! Two tone is a favorite of mine, and why not add an extra splash of color? I've always loved those black & white portraits with a subtle shade thrown in (or not so subtle). Journal skins designed with a limited color palette tend to look elegant and refined. Sort of a nod to the classics.
Week of August 31st
Challenge : Back to School suggested by Celvas & poserfan
Well, this is ironic... The reason last week's articles are late is because of this very thing. I started third grade homeschool on Monday last week and proceeded to be completely exhausted of my will to do things like check my e-mail, write articles, click 'like' on Facebook... Instead, my minuscule free time I spent watching shows I missed and longing for more free time. I fantasized about being one of those Moms who drinks wine after school each day as I took a looooong shower. And no, I don't even really drink. The last alcohol I had was probably around St. Patrick's Day.
One of my favorite things about back to school season would be all the supplies. So many beautiful notebooks and pens! And things I do not need, but I want them! So, it is the very first thing I think of. Images of pens and papers and composition notebooks (why do they all have that marbled cowprint look?), lunchboxes and book bags... And of course, school buses! And let's not forget classroom decorations. So many ideas for journal skins.
Are you headed back to school?
