So, here we are in the last week of Summer of Colour. Already! If you've only just stumbled across this, check out all the rainbow of colours we've been playing with for the last six weeks by clicking on the Summer of Colour 3 button in the sidebar.
And the final set of colours? Sage and sepia.
Well, they immediately brought to mind the word 'vintage'. Now, vintage is not normally my style, but I'm up for a challenge. Plus I received a whole passel of vintage papers in a recent mail swap organised by Artists in Blogland.
Once again I made a little time-lapse video. I've learned a lot in the past six weeks about my process. For instance, I generally leave some time between layers to think about what comes next. Very rarely do I have an end in sight at the beginning. When I make a video which I can't pause, I have to have some idea of where I'm going or at least a selection of materials that I stick to. The limitations have been fun - forcing me to work in a different way, with colours that aren't the norm for me. The pages that have emerged have been a change from my usual style. And that's a good thing. So thank you for all the fun Kristin!
The main photo in this layout is a wedding photo from 1992 aged in iPhoto. The dictionary defines 'vintage' as the year or place in which wine, esp. of high quality, was produced. I like to think that our marriage is like that - of especially high quality and maturing nicely.
A few close-ups.
