I signed up for 21 Secrets way back in April...and have only finished ONE of the 21 workshops!!!
I posted about those pages some time ago ( class...here if you want to take a look.
I began another of the workshops -in June or July...and just haven't taken the time to complete it!
The double spread pictured in this post was finished in August as part of Natasha's 'secrets'...and maybe posting about it will motivate me to get busy with the rest!
My old desktop computer has been in therapy for months now and won't give up the pictures I took before I added the red squares above...but we can live without them, I'm sure.
Is that sunrise deliciously beautiful or what?!?
Sophia would say..."Or what"!
(I'm posting vacation pictures in between because South and SW Florida is just so awesomely beautiful...that I can't help it).
I wasn't too crazy about the prompt for this spread...so it was difficult for me to move along.
But I kept adding until it looked like this...
Which I kinda liked.
But when I added the letters...I wasn't so sure about it.
I think my subject matter was a bit of a bummer.
I was trying to portray living in a city where trash and garbage run rampant - covering up the natural and manmade beauty that is here in Barranquilla - under it all.
And while my message was 'Living above it all'...it simply made me think too much about the fact that I live IN it.
I think Colombia needs a "Give a hoot...don't pollute" campaign.
But I'm not the one to start it.
I don't mean to offend any of you reading this post that may live here.
I know that you know better.
I also know and am thankful that some of the schools here are teaching children to give a hoot.
And I'm certainly teaching anyone that I can influence...
but how in the world did this post turn into something so serious?!?
I'm going to focus on living in a clean, healthy environment...
And probably wipe some dust off the furniture tomorrow.
And maybe mop the floor.
