Weekend Getaway: Santa Cruz

I had a wonderful time in Santa Cruz with some friends this past weekend. Though the weather was not as balmy as expected, a bunch of the crew enjoyed surfing (bottom images; those aren't seals!!) and I got some great cafe/reading time in, as well as a nice walk on the beach. I also got a chance to try some new iPhone apps; in the image above I used Photo Frame Maker to create the collage and Phonto to add the text. Pretty fun! The finale to the weekend was a concert by the Shins, one of my all time fave bands. It was great to finally see them live!

Create Something Today

I've been pretty busy with freelance projects lately, which is both exciting and also quite time consuming! Today I allowed myself to play around a bit, taking a break from client work. I've been wanting to do a series of prints with quotes, and so I started by playing around with some simple text on this paint background. Wouldn't this be fun and inspirational in a studio?

P.S. (I thought I found this photo on Lost and Taken, but honestly it has been in my folder for awhile and so I am unable to give credit where its due! Apologies!)
