Week four of Wanderlust 2019 and we're back with Kasia Avery (blog, Instagram). After having said that I don't do the whole word for the year thing, guess what this week's exercise was... I also said that even if I did "my words would be the same every year: explore, play, learn". So what word… Continue reading Wanderlust: do!
Week three of the "Typography" theme brought the next guest teacher: Kelly Hoernig (website, Vimeo, Instagram). So this is the actual homework for week three's lesson (unlike "ow!" which was just inspired by it).

This covered ten different ways of applying colour and texture to a page to create a background that could then be built on with other elements. I ended up with eleven backgrounds; I tried one… Continue reading Wanderlust: beautiful backgrounds
