For the first time ever I'm posting to the Third Thursday Challenge on the right day. Small victory dance going on in my corner. ;)
And here it is. Inspired by Brenda herself from her diptych post which reminded me of the great storytelling potential of diptychs. I've seen so many diptychs popping up on flickr and instagram and I love the storytelling possibilities of them. I've seen lots of different takes on it - before/after, outside/inside, looking up/looking down, day/night....Kirsten at Mortal Muses wrote a great post called 5 Secrets of a Diptych Addict which has lots of great tips and ideas.
For my diptych, I wanted to experiment a bit with mixing and matching image and word, inspired by some of the layouts I've seen in the lovely Kinfolk magazine. I'm always intrigued about how images and words can work together and love exploring new ways of expressing that.
So here it is. Another ode to a spring that seems to have got lost. Soon, I hope, soon.
Thank you to Brenda for hosting. Hop on over for more inspiration and some great advice on creating textures, including one of her own creations for download.
