Hello all! Well I have finally gotten my laptop back after experiencing the dreaded “Blue Screen of Death” a week ago. Thank goodness the “Geek Squad” was able to retrieve most of what I had lost when my drivers totally crashed…what a nightmare! I’m hoping it will last me through the next few months of the MVW competition…
I am busily preparing for our Bootcamp challenge which is due in only two days. I definitely have my work cut out for me…but no one said this would be easy!
I wanted to go ahead and post our most recent challenge, which was our first Photography Challenge. After reaching out to several photographers with no response, I was forced to do my best with my photography skills which are intermediate at best. While I’m afraid some of the details are lost in my attempt, I’m hoping my graphics can do my styling some justice.
Entombed in her golden chambers, the ancient goddess stirred for the first time in thousands of years. Without the sun to bask in she’d slept through centuries, but a crack in her prison let in a single ray of light and the goddess awakened from her slumber.
“STYLE AN ANCIENT GODDESS LIKE LOOK TO AWAKE FROM A GOLDEN SLUMBER”
My backstory for this challenge:
Isis, the ancient Egyptian Goddess, was the first daughter of Geb, god of the Earth, and Nut, goddess of the Sky. Once revered by all as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patroness of nature and magic, her power began to wane as new religions sprang up and silenced her along with so many others. She was left to hide away in what was once a grand and ancient temple built in her honor. There she waited alone as millennia passed and times and people changed. A spiritual shift began to take place and interest in the ancient ones was refueled by many, especially women seeking to regain the power they felt was stolen from them. It was rumored among the modern people that Isis still lay in a suspended sleep-state in her once glorious temple that had long since been sealed up. A brave group of women ventured out to see if it was true. Chiseling away at the pyramid, they were able to remove a single ancient brick. A ray of pure blinding sun shot through to the center of the temple where countless mirrors directed the light on the slumbering Goddess. Her eyes dart open and suddenly her ancient robes woven with pure golden silk begin to let off bright sparks of divine light. She stands proudly knowing she has been called back to her power, never to be silenced again.
