i have also recently fell IN LOVE with a new photographer exploring life and herself through a 365 self-portrait project. i can't stop looking at her photos. here are some of my favorites:
her name is uneduex; she is brave and raw and such an inspiration.
please check out her photostream... you won't regret it.

there have been so many tutorials around lately that i'm so excited to try...
this first one is from Rhonna Farrer. she's been a favorite designer of mine for awhile now... and her new project House of 3 is full of juicy digital love. i just wish i had my own computer and photoshop so i could use some of it!
recently she did a step by step tutorial for the creation of these little beauties!!

check it out HERE. this i wanna try for sure!

in addition to that, one of my favorite scrappers, Mandi, did a tutorial on her blog for mini-album creation. don't get me wrong...i've done plenty of mini's before, but there is just something special about hers. see for yourself:

i want to make beautiful art like this.... *swoon*
