Hello girls! It's been a bit quiet on my blog....so many ideas but not enough hours in the day to work on them!
It's the middle of the month and time for a brand new challenge at Words & Painterly.
This month's color palette is perfect for the beginning of fall.
I loved the orange and deep blue colors for Septembers challenge. I took this photo of my nine year old boy and when I posted it on Instagram, I wrote the caption 'seriously nine' as I see him maturing and having serious, pensive moments and asking me thoughtful questions. I wrote some journaling on the back about the changes I see in him.
Here is the challenge for September.
For more info on how to enter and to see the beautiful work by our
design team please go here.
Here are a few close ups...
I had an idea to use some denim on this layout so I tore up an old pair of his jeans
and used strips of a back pocket underneath my photo, love the texture it added.
I wanted a really grungy look so I did a lot of masking with a 13 arts stencil
and then used blue and black ink on the background.
Thanks for looking!
I hope you'll join in :)
