Good Monday morning and welcome to week 3 of our June challenge! 😀 I do hope you had time to play a little (or a lot) with your image this week and perhaps to try something new.
Surprise!! I know, it’s pink! I’ll tell you more about this further on 😉
Once again, welcome to the new people joining us. Do hope you’re enjoying the challenge.. I’m looking forward as usual to seeing everyone’s changes and the different editions for this week.
Please let me know if I haven’t visited you yet. I think I’m making it around all of the blogs – Some feeds are not coming up in Reader though, so please let me know… I’m also slow presently, battling with a slow (or no – at times) internet connection. I think I’m caught up, but let me know otherwise 😀 😀
Please keep tagging your post with One Four Challenge, so we can view your posts in Reader… and link up here too – leaving your post link in comments!
- If you are on another blogging platform, please leave a link in a comment on this post, so we can find you!
- (Note: if you are on Blogger – I will reply to your One Four post here on my blog, under your comment / post link. I am unsure why, but my message replies don’t seem to work, so look for them here please).
This week, I’ve been doing some hit and miss experiments with light and surface. It’s been very interesting. To my eye, the images for this week are purely about surfaces. I’d love to know what your impressions are regarding this.
One thing I’ve been trying lots of (more than usual) this week – is changing blend modes on random layers to see what happens. It’s very interesting! Some results are amazing and some are well, just horrible.
So yes, my image this week is Pink. I know we either love or hate pink, so I added a few other colours as well 😀 On my screen, these show as very pure hues. I’ve also added a bit of noise to the images. I liked it better that way.
I stepped across into design this week. I can imagine these images or some all together on a wall or an advertisement.

This week, my processing was surprisingly simple.
Using last week’s image, I added a Gradient Map adjustment layer set to normal blend mode. The colours shown are simply a ‘colour and white’ gradient. I didn’t intend to use this design based approach, but the simplicity and the purity of colour appealed to me. I do think some colours work a bit better than others and I’ve done this so we have a comparison.
I wonder what you think of this detour of mine. I understand that this won’t appeal to everyone.. and that’s really ok 🙂
Your kind thoughts and comments are always welcome and appreciated!
Over to you again and looking forward to seeing what you’ve done this week.
About the challenge and how it works:This challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks. We will all process / post edit (our own chosen image) and share a different version each week. Process it however you like… and tell us a bit about it. You don’t have to show the original image unless you’d like to. (I’m going to show mine in week 4 along with the 4 variations from the month). Try new things, experiment. Be as creative or subtle as you wish to be. Each week starts again on Monday (Aussie time) and closes off the following Sunday (at the end of the day), so there is a whole week for you to create your post, link up here and tag your post. This is a ongoing challenge. We will do the 1st four Mondays of the month. If there are 5 Mondays in a month – we’ll still only post on 4. A bit about the review month/s
The review month will be a regular part of the challenge from now on. I hope you like the idea and make it work for you.. You can read more about it ‘here‘
This is how it will work – and this way we can plan ahead, knowing what’s coming up.
- May, June and July – One Four Challenge
- August – Review month
- September, October, November – One Four Challenge
- December – Review month
- January, February, March – One Four Challenge
- April – Review month… and so it goes 😉
Please TAG with One Four Challenge – thanks so much. As well as a link (to my blog post) in your own post – would you mind leaving your post link on my blog post too please – in comments if you could – this way we are aware of everyone’s blog posts. Thank you!
We’re going to try this until January 2016 and see what we think then 🙂 I hope that works for you. Your thoughts and comments are welcome!
Have another great week, filled with creativity 🙂
