I'm back again! Blogging like a soldier!!
Well I am all caught up now!!! Just about :)
I do have some news to share with you all here soon...
For now here are the close-ups for my SATW page -
"Finals Ball" based on our current mood board HERE.
I was very inspired by Alexandra's mood board.
The top left image of the ball gown inspired me
to use the photo of my son & his friends at his
Matric Dance, which is the local equivalent of a Finals Ball.
I LOVE pink - it's one of my favourite colours & definitely the one I wear the most.
So I was dying to use it, although I find that too much pink doesn't work well
with photographs as it tends to cast too much of a pink overtone onto the
skin colours & everyone looks like little pigs :)
To overcome that I toned down my pink with a lot of white to keep it really subtle!
The steel paint brush handle, typewriter keys & necklace inspired me to use silver alphas.
The background in the paint brush photo inspired my watered down misted background.
I had it in mind to add a lot of pink flowers in keeping with the
flowery image but it turned out that they weren't needed after all.
