Picmonkey finally released the much anticipated collage feature his week, yey! I for one am very happy to see the new rollouts on Picmonkey, I will definitely share with you some of my favorite tools in that site over the summer. Up until now I have been completely unmotivated to figure out how to create a collage using another program, once Picnik shut it doors I just stopped too. Soooooo this morning I got up and quietly sneaked away with my coffee and opened up picmonkey and decied to try to make a storyboard with colors that I’m inspired by this season. I love the idea of marrying fashion (and interiors for that matter) with the colors and patterns that I’m photographing. That same sentiment is echoed in one of my favorite books The Well Dressed Home. Which also happens to have a cover in a color that makes my heart sing, teal.
I noticed when I looked through my instagram feed I was taking photos of the same blues and greens with a splash of yellow every now and then. There was one ceramic tile photo that captured all of the colors working together. I used that as my starting point and added pieces that flowed well. If you know me my style is pretty classic, I am an East Coast preppy at heart with the Preppy Handbook and motif pants to back it up. Naturally I blow most of my clothing budget at J.CREW. I even joked during my last shopping trip that from here on out I was going to buy all of my clothes from J.CREW ONLY, they found that amusing, I think 40% of the items in my closet have the words J.CREW sewn on it.
