Okay, look, so I normally don’t make a post just to say that I’ve made a new layout but… I made a new layout, you guys! πŸ˜€ It’s not the only reason I’m making this post of course. Truth is, I miss posting, so now I’m just going to take the bigger versions of the pics you can already see on the blog and I’m going to dump them on your faces for no particular reason. It’s a photoshoot… but not really. Still, I’m pretty proud of how they came out and wanted to share.

I’m still on a break with the story until the 20th. That gives me a whole week more, and it just so happens that I’m off from school for a week – I foresee lots of writing in my future πŸ™‚ If you like, I also post a few pictures on Tumblr now and again and recently I posted one that has a little sneak peek of one of the upcoming chapters, so uh… yeah πŸ™‚ That’s a thing! Now, onto the pictures.

First of all, the pics I took for the banners for the stories:

These next ones are a bit different from my usual fare. I stumbled on tons of incredible nature/ruined castle CC on Tumblr and just HAD to make some lovely scenery. I want this to feature in a project that I haven’t really started except for some notes, and to be honest I don’t know if this story will ever materialise because I spend so much time on MVS. If the story doesn’t, though, at least I’ve got these nice-looking nature pictures. I didn’t honestly think I could make anything nice landscaping-wise, but I think these look pretty decent.

These pictures are exactly the same as the ones I used in the banner, only I stuck them together and blended them together to make it look like one long image. It’s something I’ve been experimenting with for a bit now, and I don’t think it looks half bad.

So, yeah, that’s all. Sorry for this silly post but I missed this πŸ™‚ I’ll be seeing you guys next weekend when I finally post and until then, I hope you have a great time.

These are so great! I love the “blue” theme you have going on there, with the clothes and those adorable little wildflowers… lovely! <3
Ah, Carlo Carlo Carlo..! I missed him so much, so nice to see him again with Vittoria! 😍
Good luck on your new story – if you do write it, I know I'll look forward to reading it and if not, well, we have those pretty pictures at least, like you said! πŸ˜€

    Thank you <3 I thought the colour of those flowers was so striking - I just had to make use of that gorgeous blue! πŸ˜€
    I missed him, too <3 I took pictures of them for one of the new chapters, so they'll both make an appearance soon!
    I really hope I'll find some sort of balance that'll allow me to write the other story because I want to share it so badly πŸ™‚ Until then, at least I can make gorgeous scenery and dream of using it - ha, ha πŸ˜€
    Thanks for commenting <3

This is all soo beautiful and dreamy! I always love your pictures and how you use colors, although it’s a bit weird not to see Genevieve in purple. πŸ˜›

    NotJustaBook · October 12, 2018 at 8:26 pm

    Thank you, Jowita ^_^ I’m really glad you like the colours.
    Ha, ha, yes πŸ˜› you get so used to Gen wearing nothing but purple and then I just forced her to wear blue!

I love the new layout and the pictures! It’s a really nice shade of blue, and the tiny flowers are so cute 😍

I envy your photo skills! Especially erythropoietin g looks so nice. I need to learn how to take pics and put them on a background. I have gimp and I’m pretty sure you can do all kinds of cool things with it. I just haven’t taken the time to learn. I see that as a project in my future! Lol….

    NotJustaBook · October 13, 2018 at 8:22 pm

    Thank you, Audrey! <3
    Ah yes, I know a lot of people love Gimp and use it a lot. I'm a little too impatient so I stick to other programs I know better πŸ˜›

Kymber · October 13, 2018 at 11:57 pm

These are gorgeous! I could look at the pics you take all day. πŸ˜€ I really love the layout, too.

    NotJustaBook · October 14, 2018 at 7:50 am

    Thank you so much, Kym <3 It means a lot coming from you, since you're pretty much the layout queen around here! :)

      Kymber · October 14, 2018 at 7:01 pm

      I am? LOLOL I know I’ve tried every layout, but didn’t know I was royalty! hahaha πŸ˜› I love everything you do. Every layout you’ve had looks so clean and beautiful.

        NotJustaBook · October 14, 2018 at 7:47 pm

        You are *definitely* royalty! πŸ˜€
        Thanks so much <3 You're too kind.

Love the new theme! That shade of blue is so fresh and relaxing! And those pictures are SO GORGEOUS! Holy heck what a beautiful world, I absolutely love it! Hope this coming week is good for you, and you’ll be ready to hop back on the wp train ;3

    NotJustaBook · October 14, 2018 at 7:57 am

    Thank you <3 It's really nice to have something lighter and brighter to look at, I think πŸ™‚
    I'm really excited about posting again! So hopefully I have a productive week ahead!

I’m here! And slowly playing catchup before returning to the story. Your layout is probably wildly different now given how long ago this was, but those photos are lovely~ I like how you make everyone’s wardrobe match the theme; before with the pinks and now with the blue (there may have also been a yellow, but I could be mistaken) That’s some dedication! πŸ™‚

    NotJustaBook · May 4, 2019 at 4:19 pm

    Hiii Amy! πŸ˜€ It’s great to have you checking in. <3 My theme has change many, many times since this, yeah, ha, ha. I also stopped taking new photos with different outfit colours for all themes, so some of that dedication has fallen to the wayside. :') Ha, ha!
    Thank you for the kind words and thank you for taking the time to catch up. <3
