It's August, and August is sunny and warm in the Northern Hemisphere, and what better color to photograph than the color Yellow!
June was a pretty month in the Grace Project with Pink collages everywhere. The secret picker chose to highlight the work of Dannie Armstrong!
The secret picker said: "Dannie's grid struck me immediately and emotionally. From the fading flowers and the muted edits, I felt a sense of nostalgia and calm with a touch of melancholy. I read her comment about her mother succumbing to Alzheimer's and fully understood the emotions that influenced these images. My sympathies and hope that memories plus photography help heal." Dannie, we hope that you are finding peace in whatever way you need. This grid was beautifully presented and very moving. Congrats!
We also had a runner up this month...

One last collage to highlight is the following:
by Christine Wright.
Christine's grid was artfully presented. Not only are they beautiful, but they're almost little glimpses of summer, happy and cheerful, and we want to see more!

In April, we had an optional challenge with the color Green. The challenge was to use Green symbolically.
We had an amazing April filled with cheerful Green images! They were nurturing, calming and overall so spring like that it was a joy filled month.
Happy May! May means sunshine and blue skies and beautiful weather, and during this month, we will be studying the color Blue!
What a colorful March we had with all the Hot Pink submissions! It was a cold and snowy March in New York, so the hot pink definitely was a fun break from the winter weather.
It's April, and April means Spring! And Spring means life outdoors, and the return of greenery and flowers and life! So what better color to photograph than the color Green!
What a joy it was to see Red all month long during February!
It's month number three of our color project here at the Grace Project, and for the month of March we will focus on Hot Pink.
2018 is off to a great start! We focused our attention to the color White in January, and we had so many wonderful white collages.
