~by the beautiful Sara Duckett. I had totally forgotten reading her Q & A article published in the Autumn issue of Artful Blogging. And, now she has another featured article in the Winter issue of Artful Blogging, with her I Saw Red challenge! It was just last week that I decided to spruce up my simple blog layout; and found her, sadie olvie~le journal, via Sandra Evertson's blog. I was totally mesmerized with her photography, her story, and especially her design work. So, via several e-mails, I determined I would like to use her talents, and asked her to be a part of my journey in the blog world. So, the near future (after December 19th), will bring about a new blog look for me. I am so excited about the possabilities. In the meantime, I also joined her Flickr group, Shades of Inspiration, as I am forever stretching my wings thru my photography.
She publishes a weekly challenge, and this week it is ~ tarnished silver ~ How cool is that?
So, using a simple and rustic cream & sugar set I bought at Warrenton's antique festival last Spring, I went outside and caught a couple of shots in the evening light. I find this exercise is also helping me put together thoughts, pictures and ideas for my new blog banner and business cards. (I continue enjoy using PSE6 and picnik in the process, of course).
The only thing now is that I am having to re-think my love affair with rust.
It may just have to move over
~as tarnish may be taking its place.
