Found a photo I took last week in Carne, …am thinking I might use this and create some illustrated old Greek buildings made up of different shades of triangles to place within the image.

I have photoshopped this one just messing around..so this may not be how the photo looks when I’m finished!!

….so am going to take a break for an hour and come back to it.

23:19

So….today is nearly over….thank god!!!! That was the toughest and most head wrecking day.

I came up with an idea really late…which would be an illusion triangle that could be filled with photographs. But even that didn’t look great!

After hours and hours trying to make something…anything work it came to light that these words together are just s##t!! And so…..as heartbreaking as it is….I am left with only one image that’s fits the brief!!!

Afterthoughts:
Awww…today’s a sad day…for the first time ever my brain was empty. The ideas I did have were going nowhere, and it seemed like everything I tried was just boring! But that’s life….some days are just s##t; so just wave a little white flag and admit defeat!! :(

Fingers crossed tomorrow will bring better words!
