Colourful 2009

Yep, I actually managed to get these done BEFORE the end of January. Very proud of myself. You can click on the image to take a closer look. While I figure out how they can best be turned into physical objects. Individual images in a .zip file? A pdf document? It's a shame I haven't got InDesign at my disposal, that would make things a whole lot easier. Does anyone know of an alternative to InDesign?

I kept putting off finishing this little project, because I wasn't completely happy with all of the initial versions and I wasn't sure how to proceed. And I had certainly rules that I "had to" follow. Once I scrapped those it got a lot easier! Sometimes rules are a good thing, other times they are pointless. I spent a lot of time fiddling with some of them but others just sort of came together without me doing much. Funny how that happens sometimes.

I am very happy with the result. And sad that they are meant to be seen one page at a time. They look so pretty all together like this; how could you possibly separate them?! But they might be a wee bit too small all on one A4 page? Or maybe not?

I can't believe I'm actually going to type this, but: I think my favourite is November. Which is neither here nor there, because I don't like grey, I think it is probably the saddest colour in the world! I am also rather happy with July, I really like the simplicity of it. What's your favourite?
