To be in Love....


What a wonderful sentiment, and what a wonderful time I had doing this piece! This black and white piece is for the latest challenge at Created by Hand. I have thought for a while now that I would like to do an altered book that is filled with nothing but black, white, and maybe one accent color. There is something that is so much easier about working with black and white. You can just focus on the images, the embellishments, etc. without having to worry about color and if they harmonize, or are they aesthetically pleasing together. So if you want to just have some fun and do something more spontaneously then I highly recommend that you try black and white. Also, you could use colors, any colors, and if you have a photo editing program, you can convert the colors to black and white, sepia, or antique. Remember, (I tend to forget this) to have fun. This piece doesn't have to be all, and get sent to the Louve!
