I am leaving them bigger than I usually do. Let me know if that works for you, as a reader. And as usual click on image to enlarge.

Beauty is a great escape.
So is fiddling around and experimenting with art.Here is today's little story:
So, I took these photos today of an interesting flower I had never seen before. I brought home a piece and a pod too. Then I lay it down between a shred of white silk (brought home from a felting workshop - never felted!), previously dyed with something I no longer remember, but currently resembling my mothers old nylons! Then I smashed it with a hammer!!! The result was not pleasing to the eye, just sort of blah. I didn't even enjoy the process all that much as I felt like a murderer of that poor flower! Maybe this is an activity to do when angry! LOL Maybe I need to read up on this! Is there a special technique to flower smashing? I threw it in the yellow rose dye pot that was sitting next to me. Take that you experiment, you! Anyway, next I smashed a couple of pansies. The result was a little better. There was a little pansy shape, that I will show you if I ever get those photos to upload! I hung it on the rock rose and then my guy came out and did the watering. He did ask me if I cared if he watered it. Nah. Just fooling around and it didn't look fantastic anyway. So now it hangs there, clinging to the rock rose, lightly dyed - mostly sheer, naked in the night. Oh well, easy come, easy go. Ha!
|Odd new flower & pods|
|Look at all of those pods! I haven't opened mine yet. If you know what this is, let me know!|
This is a bouquet I can recognize!
