We’ve been daydreaming about picturesque sunsets and desert days spent in New Mexico, so we’re dedicating this week’s Journal Entry to all things Southwest. Georgia O’Keeffe, Navajo trinkets, mystical tales and nature are just a few of the powerful influences that provide endless inspiration for us, not to mention the warm color palette of pinks, oranges, blues and browns.   You know, those desert colors that are so saturated in the landscape and the sky that you never forget their dizzying impact?  We’re game for a Southwestern desert excursion, but in the meantime we’ll keep dreaming about sun-drenched mornings and dry, starry nights. Check out our completed Journal Entry below, and to see the process behind Joanna & Simone South by Southwest visit Simone’s blog here.   To see more Journal Entries by Joanna & Simone click here.
