This Summer we went to Lille (France) to visit my family, we have always made this trip by car so it always turns out to be a fun roadtrip where we get to enjoy the beauty of small villages in France as we travel. This year we stopped a couple of hours to visit Chartres, the cathedral and beautiful views. Since I have studied the cathedral's architecture I was pretty excited to see it in person, and it was way bigger than I expected. A beautiful place I had the chance to visit.
I use photoshop almost weekly if not daily for my uni projects, it's a tool whithout which I could not do any of the work I get done. That's why the several times it suddenly stopped working I panicked like a freak. When I saw this tutorial on Noor's blog, and how beautiful it looked on the photos she shared I decided to try it by myself. I do not know if I will ever use this for anything in particular but I did enjoy myself while doing them. And I do like how it looks in the end.
The images I used to try this are from the beautiful country of Morocco, from the photograph James Clear
To know how to put the pattern on the photos check Noor's post on her blog. She also shares with us some links to some patterns we can use, which I definitelly used!
1. Wearing coats.
2. Rainy days.
3. Red nose and cheeck from the wind.
4. Even if I will hate it later, I do look forward to the routine of going back to class.

So I've been quite late on this, but even if it takes me more time that what it's supposed to take me (a.k.a 30 days) I don't mind. The purpose of this project designed by Noor is that at the end of it we have let our hands free to creat, that we have get inspired and used to draw. Because as a persone who used to draw a lot you have to keep doing it, it doesn't matter what you draw, just keep your hand moving, keep your mind inspired.
So it's not too late for you to join, take your time, enjoy yourself while drawing. And check Noor's post about why she started it here and here you can check the prompts of the doodle project. And don't forget to check week 1 Noor's post to see what and she draw the things!
"today you will be the woman
that you please to be
today you're going to love yourself
as none has loved you before
today you'll look ahead
that looking backwards already hurt you pretty much
a brave woman, a woman smiling
look how she goes by "
(translation from the spanish song Ella (She) - BEBE)

Inspiration, Imagination and Great Ideas. It's the best formula for my daily life, for developing my architectural career, for growing this blog, for my dreams and goals. What a beautiful feeling being full of inspiration and ready to create and what an awfull one the lack of it. And what a better way to show it's true meaning that with these inspiring comics.
