Melancholy

The next mood we're working with for Shimelle's online class is sad. I actually tweaked it a bit to melancholy. I have pondered this word all my life, so I thought I'd go a bit deeper with it. As I explain here, it goes way back... I didn't intend to have purple hair in the picture. I printed it in black and white and my black is running out. Kind of one of those pleasant "mistakes".


I also added "10 things" to represent the 10 moods we will be working on for my cover. I'm using a fun 5x7" Making Memories "cheeky" album for this project.

Love it. Liked the journaling around the circles, and the picture was cool.

Oh this was such a "pretty" page -- a page that really did fit the mood so perfectly well, and that mistake with the picture just seemed right here :)

I happen to LOVE the way your photo turned out. Wish I could turn my hair purple like that because it's so retro funk and I think it fits the melancholy theme so well.

Awesome work!
