Artistic Pursuits on a Non-Professional Level

I have some slight problems with my current personal project.

1) I have no Photoshop or InDesign to do it on.
2) I have no budget to have it color-printed. (How I took for granted the cheap printing prices in the Philippines! Printing in Canada is more expensive.)
3) I reeeaaaaallyyy want it color-printed!

These setbacks are why, as of now, I'm substituting Photoshop for Microsoft Word to help me with projects and why I need to be extra creative because I'll be working in gray scale for the time being. You may or may not know this but I am in love with color. I can't not have color. One of the first things I look for in magazines, blogs, and other layouts is the color scheme. Right now, I'm a little sad and unsatisfied with my black-white-and-gray work, but never mind! A good artist must always work with whatever she (or he) has and be resourceful. That is one of the true tests of creativity. (Plus, now I know my way around Microsoft Word--especially helpful for school projects!)

Anyway, here's a small sneak peek on the project. Hopefully, I'll get my Photoshop soon and find a way to print less expensively. Haha!


  1. Your project looks interesting! I'm sure you'll work things out. You are, after all, very creative. :)


Thank you so, so much for your encouraging words! I hope your day is as awesome as you are. c:
