I did manage it by running in and out of doors everytime the sun came out!
Here are the black clouds taking over the blue!
Even when I was out there, it would suddenly cloud over, leaving me patiently waiting for the sun to make a reappearance. I had to be very quick with my camera.
I got my boys to help at first and they posed with some accessories on for some shadow shots:
..and then we started looking for interesting objects that would make good shadows:
This one is of course, a cullender.
..and a tennis-type of bat.
Rain stopped play for a while and then I found some more objects:
(Lace from Gauche Alchemy)
(The material known in the US as Burlap, I think)
Even the grass itself gave an interesting, simple shadow
All in all, despite the hiccups, it was a fun little project for a sunny day.
A couple more pages of my journal for 'In the Sun'
We were shown a video of 'Holiday' by Vampire Weekend and asked to do a page on the design elements we got from it. I was going to choose something about someone from a different area coming into an environment that was totally alien to them - like 'Crocodile Dundee' - but couldn't find suitable pictures so I used this graphic element instead.
Finally today, another page we were asked to do was to list our daily routine:
The background suggested was to cut magazine strips out and add washi tape inbetween, which is what I have done. The blue is blue sky and appropriately for me, the grey is a photo of a wet surface. Just like the Summer we are having at the moment, blue, grey, blue, grey...
I have written my routine on here but its not for prying eyes (its also a bit dull, must put MORE art in, lol)
Right, after that mammoth post, I need to get on with
my dull routine creating lots of exciting art!
Thanks for looking and for any comments,
