I love taking a black and white print and adding a light water-colour wash to accentuate certain areas; it works so well as a technique. The b&w print on pink card, pictured in the photograph above, shows some experimentation I first did and it turned out pretty nice – will be uploading more pieces soon!
Hope you’re enjoying August so far and I know I’ve been slacking lately and missed a couple of days of the challenge (oops!) but hopefully catch up soon!
Also, if you have a blog with art / fashion & beauty / photography posts then leave me your link below because I’m looking to follow some new blogs. And leave me your feedback and comments too; I love hearing what you think!
“And of His signs is that you see the earth stilled, but when We send down upon it rain, it quivers and grows. Indeed, He who has given it life is the Giver of Life to the dead. Indeed, He is over all things competent.”
And so I’ve decided to join The August Break (#augustbreak2013) photo challenge hosted by Susannah Conway and I’ll hopefully be posting a photo a day (or every couple of days) over this month using the prompts below. I’m hoping it’ll be a chance to refresh my blog and spend this month a little more productive than the last in terms of blogging.
Why not join in too!
“Each day, for the whole of August, take a photo and share it on your blog. You can add words if you want — or not. You can use any camera. You could share a series of photos, or miss a day out, or just post on weekends. There are no real rules, basically. This is all about being present and enjoying taking photos just for the hell of it. And perhaps reinvigorating your love for blogging, and/or taking a break from writing.”
