2 Of A Kind

Yes, we have another swimmer in the family. Kevin has taken after his big sister in pursuing this wonderful sport. With practice up to 2 hours a day, five to six days a week, swimming has become a big part of his life. Here they are together, my youngest and oldest, two of a kind.


It wasn't easy finding papers for these photos. I didn't know which way to go with it, so I began pulling out anything I could find in the colors of his towel, her shirt, their chairs, etc. Somehow I ended up with this mix of graph paper, houndstooth, and dots.


I'm pretty sure this chipboard is supposed to be protective goggles, as in a chemistry lab. Regardless, painted to match the page, it makes a nice stand-in for swim goggles.


I'm curious. What color palette would you have chosen for this page?

Hmmm...not sure what I would have done. I like the way it turned out though, the bold colors are balanced perfectly with the big white letters.
