Hello everyone,

My name in Yenny and I am currently living in Taiwan. I purchased Bonnie's course from Creative Live back in 2014 hoping that I could design something for my sister to thank her for helping me financially through many years. However, I am a very left-brained kind of person, my thinking process goes in linear fashion :-), and very introvert, and English is not my native language, so I found out I was very intimidated with the idea of working with theme and storytelling that I later decided to abandon the project. 

Later, I found out about this workshop. I joined this workshop to force myself to overcome the fear. I was about to give up again :-), then somehow found the courage to try it. I could only come up with two themes. Hope this would be a good start.

THEME 1. Youthful

I chose Calla Lily because this is the flower my sister loves. Almost all the white calla photos are my own, the colorful one were from google image search.

Words that are associated with it (sorry, couldn't come up with 10): elegant, youth, innocence, strength, rejuvenate, gratitude, appreciation

THEME 2. Eternal Beauty

This is the theme on roses. The photos in the moodboard are my own.

Words: delicate, beauty, love, grace, sweetness

I also found that working with color is not easy, my life is usually black and white :-) It's quite funny when I thought about this, because I was quite good at art when I was little. Hope Bonnie could shed some light.
