Summer of Color - Blue....
All around Blogland people are talking about the Summer of Color! So you know what that means....yep, I joined in. As if I didn't already have enough things going on, I jumped in because I love color.
The first color choice was bluewhich has never been one of my favorite colors although I do like turquoise.
I pulled out everything I had in blue and began a journal spread....
I tried taking photos in different light throughout the day but I couldn't get good photos that show how vibrant these pages really are. They look so much better in person so wanna come over and look at them here?!!
I tried everything I could think of to edit them and bring the colors out more but nothing worked. They look faded and lifeless in these pictures.
When I added the woman I knew she had to have some huge flowers in her hand but they get lost a little bit with all the stuff going on in the background. On some levels I'm really happy with this spread but on others I'd have to say it's not my best work.
