The Colours of Chihuly (Travel Theme: Colours)

The shapes Chihuly creates are simply amazing. Size is definitely not deterrent either to this remarkable artist. What I find even more incredible are the magnitude of colours used!

When wandering through his displays at the Chihuly Garden and Glass Exhibition in Seattle, there doesn’t appear to be any favoured colour. Every shade of every colour of the spectrum are used. Truly beautiful!

Colours is this week’s Travel Theme from Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack?





Hint of Spring Time (Macro Monday)

The blue-purple hues of these Heritage Hydrangeas were simply glorious. As time went on the purple became stronger than the blue.


Here’s to a Spring bursting full with colour and an overabundance of blooms!





Glass Reflections (WPC: Ambience)

From the moment we walked into the Chihuly Garden and Glass in Seattle, we were repeatedly left both speechless and in awe. The sheer magnitude of some of his work was mind-boggling. The many colours and various techniques extraordinary.


The dark walls, the mirrors under the exhibits, the streaming of Italian music, all combined with this magnificent work of Dale Chihuly created the most delightful ambience. Ambience is this week’s Photo Challenge from the Daily Post.






Water Lily Grunge (iPhriday Flowers)

Little did I realize when I began editing this photograph I was actually channeling Monet. Love, love, love this grunge filter and how it transform a photo.


To join in the fun of iPhriday, hosted by Lisa over at Gray Days and Coffeesimply post photos you’ve taken with your cell phone whatever the brand, then add the tag iPhriday. Too easy!

Cardboard, cardstock – its all the same! (OWPC: Cardboard)

This week’s One Word Photo Challenge Word from Jennifer Nichole Wells is… CARDBOARD. Now, when I think of cardboard I immediately think of cardstock. So many colours, so many possibilities!


This cardstock is one of the main reasons I wanted to be a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up! as they have colour families for their cardstock. These coordinate beautifully with their matching inks, markers, ribbons, and, and, and… you get my drift!
