Beyond Beyond Day 19 – Kim’s Beach and My Style

This week’s task was to alter Kim Klassen’s beach photograph.  It always feels a little bit “wrong” to take one of Kim’s beautiful photos and change it – below is Kim’s original and then my version.



I love this quote of Eleanor Roosevelt.  I tried to give Kim’s photo a dreamlike feel.  The right side is a pencil sketch idea of a dream and, moving to the left, the realization of that dream.  The pencil sketch technique is in the Sept/Oct issue of Adobe Photoshop Elements magazine.
 



My Style
I don’t know that I have a style, but I do like taking photos of the plants and wildlife in my backyard.  Below is a favorite of mine – a wild bird bath party.

Friday Finds - Handmade Love

I’ve been on the look-out for an old dressmaker’s form, or some other structure, that I could dress up with scarves and jewelry to photograph.

Last weekend my mom and aunt were planning a trip to the flea market.  I asked my mom to keep an eye out for a form that might work for me. 

These two clever and talented women made one!  I cannot believe that they made this!

First they tea stained the fabric and created a pattern; they sewed and stuffed the body. And then they crafted a wooden base from a broom handle and scrap wood. 

Truly an amazing treasure!
