Day 21 – Crafts

I think these are the most adorable flowers. I love the simple look of them. I had to snap a shot while I was shopping tonight. Check out my other photographs these places: http://instagram.com/onthehunt365 http://onthehunt365.blogspot.com http://www.pinterest.com/elusiveblue/on-the-hunt-365/

I was so excited this afternoon when I found my new ring light waiting for me on the front porch (thank you Amazon). So today’s photo session was a string of still life, mostly just dolls and trinkets and things.

Day 9: Floral, 1st attempt

Ouchers… this was hard. I tend to be very controlled with my drawings and paintings and I wanted to try something a bit more… freestyle? I think I got it OK for the flowers but the leaves/greens need A LOT

Day 8: Duct Tape Flower

I would have made this flower even bigger, but I ran into problems with the tape not sticking very well because it is old and there’s dog fuzz everywhere.

Day Fifteen…

I was away at a polymer clay conference and didn’t have access to my computer (I was unable to upload pictures to my tablet–oh well).  I did make something every day, so I’m posting them all today.  First up:

I absent-mindedly made another flower while watching TV today. It’s a bit rough and I don’t really like it all that much. Ah well.

Day 4: Paper Flower

I used to make paper flowers when I was little and it appears that I have forgotten how to do it. The ones I used to make were far less twisty.

Today I have had my (nearly) two year old granddaughter to stay so it has been a bit challenging to find the opportunity to get any ‘thing’ done. While she was distracted watching Mickey Mouse I had a go at
