From Sunup to Midnight

I’ve been workin’ (workin’) day and night on the upcoming issue of Style Sample magazine, out on October 6th. I’m almost finished with the cover–all the text is there, but for some reason I feel the need to tweak it a bit. Something is niggling at me…maybe the colors.  Any suggestions?

I’m also trying to get revved up for my birthday this Sunday! I’m not really in the mood for a big ol’ bash, just a nice dinner with the ‘rents and FriendBoy. I’m feeling more chiiiilllll, you know? I like to think this is a sign of “maturity” as opposed to old age. It’s probably old age, though.

Of course, I accept all cash, checks, major credit cards, and birthday wishes should you be so inclined…

How very subtle of me. Teehee!

    I like the cover…the only thing is that my eyes are directed to her neckline where there is an abundance of white. The brightness draws your attention when it should probably be on her eyes. Not sure what you do about that, but maybe it’s what’s bothering you.

    Maybe balance the white at the bottom with a white header…and Emily is the covergirl! I got to meet her and she is an absolute sweetheart. <3 her.

    And happy early birthday, babe!!

    I think the header would look good either in white or a pewter-gray color. And the “new features” button is the only spot of that color (aside from the small bit in the header), maybe try making it the color of pink that’s on the title on the right, or vice versa? Those are the only things I’ve got!

    Happy birthday! 😀 Libras FTW!

    I like the idea of using a brighter color on the title to balance out all the white text and the black and white images and make the whole thing pop. Kind of like your red is a neutral theory…how about a red, berry, or purple? If you were wearing a black and white ensemble, what colors would your shoes be?
