round 1 is up...round 2 is on...

i made it to the 27 who will go through to do round 2 of the Scrappin Moms Idol challenge. my entry is in this gallery and the title is BISCUIT- his daily fix. congratulations to everyone who made it too. to my friends who didn't, i'm sure you're half happy since the stress would be easing off. as for me, whether this is a good thing or a bad thing is something i still need to figure out being a reluctant challenger myself. one thing i am sure though is that the round 2 challenge has pushed my buttons. the challenge is to scrap using only one color and its shades...in short, monochromatic! and there's so many restrictions!

this is not an easy task for me being a "color" person. Joanne argues that "...simple lang naman ito e." to which my answer was, "that's the problem, i like complicating things"...heheheh....truly this round agitates me, though i mean that in a good way. i tickles my "problem-solving" fancy. even in philosophy class in college, i tend to like the logic problems. they're like puzzles. i couldn't leave them alone till i've figure it all out even if it takes me ages to do. and this monochromatic challenge is puzzling to me...what reason is there for me to scrap in one color when i have lots to play with and my mind is conditioned to do such? so there's the rub...

i don't know yet how i'm going to solve this but i'm working on it. my mind's been in whirl the past couple of days i couldn't sleep well. i am wide awake till 4 am trying to sleep and up by 6 or 7 am. i'm usually like this when i'm working on a project back when i worked as a graphic designer...maybe it's why this round excites me. it reminds me of solving design problems for demanding clients..hahaha...could it be i'm missing that kind of work?....naaaah...

now, since i have no graphic to insert here since we're not allowed to post our LOs on our blogs until we've been eliminated, i'll just insert this blinkie by Liza:
kinda cool, ain't it... thanks Liza!...
