Color Splash Sunday - Red

First official post! I am so excited about this; I really hope it all works out.


For the first few weeks, I chose simple themes: colors. This week, let's focus on red! I took several pictures of red objects (pj pants, a rose, a bow) and I decided to splash some color on this shot of some books.

I focused right on the red book when I took this picture, and then I softened it up even more when editing. I don't usually do that with color splash, but I just didn't like all the distracting text on the other books.

So, I know Laura and Lena both said they were interested. If anyone else decided to join us, I have the MckLinky below so you can share your color splash photos with everyone! You have 2 days to post your link; the list closes in 48 hours.

OH, also, if you want to show-off my pretty new button anywhere on your CSS post or on your blog, you can click on my Color Splash Sunday page located right below my header.

How funny, I was thinking of doing books too! Working on mine now, should be up in a few minutes.

*What are those two books in the bottom right?

Amy said...

I have lots of children's and YA books from my literacy courses. Those 2 in the bottom right are Septimus Heap. It's a series that is similar to Harry Potter, but meant for younger ages.

Lena said...

Oooh okay, I love the binding print. And in that shot I couldn't tell if they were actually older books or if it was just the print on the spine.

Hi Amy! Thanks for the comment. I love your blog. I especially like the idea of giving yourself challenges and new projects each week to focus on. Red is one of my favorite colors and you have displayed it beautifully.

Amy said...

Thanks, Mic! I know the only way to get better is to challenge myself. And it's so much fun! :) I hope you can join in the color splash fun one week.
