I can't believe a whole week has passed since my last post. Where does the time go?
I suppose on working and making jewellery, if I stop and think about it. Below is my latest necklace, this is another of my favourites, I love the colours. It amazes me how different this piece looks on a coloured background as you can see in the second photo, it takes on the colours around it. It has lots of crystals and rhinestones which pick up the colour. This piece is on my Etsy store
Now to the photoshop findings. I had an email from Gillian Allen who runs Art-e-zine. Gillian has added a new tutorial with all sorts of links here . These are some of the effects you can achieve, with your photos, very easily. Gillian runs a fabulous site with all manner of tutorials and lots of fabulous inspirational pages.
We're back to summer again with temperatures in the 30'sC. This is the view from our front door and up the garden path.
We have a saying in Australia 'true blue' which means real or real Aussie. This flower definitely fits the bill, it's a miniature agapanthus, which I think originates from Africa, but this little beauty was developed here in the hills by a local nursery. It's a true blue and gives such a wow factor to the garden
This ginger flower is one of my favourite perfumed plants, the whole garden has this beautiful heady perfume, especially towards evening. The bees love it too as this little chap shows, he was so intoxicated on nectar he didn't even notice me.
Finally I have to let you know about this fabulous artist Michelle Moode, she does wonderful things with pen, ink and fabric. This is a piece I purchased from her etsy . The image is only small but so much detail and work, I love what she does which is amazing as she doesn't use a lot of colour, it must be my other side showing through.
