Wanted:

Shimelle has offered many wonderful writing prompts in the current class.  One of the recent ones was to write journaling in the form of a want ad or ebay offering.  I chose to create a want ad.  Here's the journaling:
Wanted: More hours in the day. Preference given to hours between midnight and 6:30 am for sleeping or late afternoon to accommodate the need to be in more than one place at the same time. Hours for diet and exercise desireable but must be accompanied by motivation. Hours for housework or computer surfing need not apply.
From a design standpoint, this art journal page is all about contrast.  Strong contrasting colors and contrasting shapes. 
Very bold, but I really want someone to answer my ad!

You know how much I admire your productivity rate as it is - with more time you'd be a whirlwind!! I love the strong contrast you've got going on here.

If you get any offers - let us know! You fill your hours pretty well already, goodness only knows how much art work you would get done if you had more to play with!

I love the bold color and yes more hours between midnight & 6am would be wonderful!

Well, it certainly got my attention, Rinda! I love yellow - it's an amazing colour...
If you should happen to get a response to your ad, would you find out if there are any more of the same and send the over to me, please?

Hi Rinda! I came here looking for your CCC21 challenge piece, but sure love what I am seeing here and of course the older post! Found it interesting that you made reference to being intimidated by PDCC color challenge! You are the master of color, go for it!! Love this page and the yellow is brilliant in more ways than one!

Deb said...
