Pleasure and Pain!
Our new Macabre Monday challenge at the Haunted Design House blog is "Pleasure and Pain" In other words, we want you to incorporate something you love and something you hate into your project this week.
The image is by The Octopode Factory, and the quote is of course by Queenie in Blackadder.
My "pleasures" in this piece are: working digitally; Octopode images; generating my own sentiments; having the image bursting out of the frame. My "pain" is white space. Yup, lots of pleasure and just a little bit of pain in mine, because that's so much more fun than the other way around :P I've just recently become more comfortable with clean and simple designs, but I ALWAYS use a background colour instead of leaving it white. White just feels wrong to me. I still want to flood this piece with a dark bg, but if I start to subvert challenge pieces then Barb will introduce me to a whole LOT of pain :P
Here are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Clean and Simple Sunday - sketch
Sketchy Colours - red green and white
Paper Sundaes - let's get sentimental
Crafty Emma's Store Challenge - clean and simple
I Did It Creations - hats (does a crown count?)
Fab n Funky - anything goes
