With graduate school ending in two weeks, I have been thinking about how important this blog has become to me. I started Scissors & Sage back in September, hoping that it would help keep me sane during what would be a hectic and probably stressful school year. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to keep up with writing posts once a week, but as it turns out, I have largely stuck to my goal. In music therapy, I often hear and learn about the benefits of self care, and this blog has certainly done the trick so far.
As my nostalgia has been kicking into high gear this month, I thought I’d take some of my Instagram photos and do something fun with them. I’ve been exploring the A Beautiful Mess iPhone app a lot recently, experimenting with different ways to alter photographs specifically with text. Above and below are some examples of what I’ve been working on. There are so many ways to alter photos in the ABM app that these photos just skim the surface. I am excited to keep trying out new designs and ideas!
