IPHONE MACRO LENS FLOWER PHOTOS


I recently purchased a couple of macro lenses for my iPhone so that I could get "up close" detailed photos.  These lenses are easy to carry around so I have them with me all the time...I'm always on a photo adventure!

One is a magnetic lens and the other is on a rubber band.

 

I am always amazed at the technology available to us nowadays.  You don't always need a big fancy camera to take some great photos for framing, projects, inspiration and the web.

The photo above is of a bouquet of flowers I bought at the market.  I then used my macro lens to get the images below.

Same subject but a totally different world when you go macro!

POCKET SIZED ART JOURNALS


These little art journals started out as a plain memo pad but add a little gesso, a lot of color, some doodling and you have a pocket sized art journal!

I plan on keeping one with me for the times a have just a few minutes to work.

I'm thinking one will be for practicing my lettering using one journal prompt on a page.  

I have a "list of journal prompt lists" here.

BOHO FABRIC JEWELRY


I'm finding ways to use up my stash of fabric with these boho inspired bracelets and necklaces.  

The great thing about this jewelry is that they don't use findings or any other supplies other than fabric and beads.  How simple is that?!?!?!

I prefer wearing just a bracelet and earrings (keeping it simple)...but these necklaces are finding a way into my heart.

The denim colored bracelet and necklace are perfect to wear with jeans (denim of course)...easy and relaxed style.

SUMMER SUN WATERCOLORS


It's been a long winter in the midwest and I am soooooooo looking forward to summer this year.  

I can't wait to get on the beach and soak up some sun!

I painted these little watercolors with beach time in mind.

EMERALD INSPIRED MIXED MEDIA


"Emerald" was Pantone's color of the year for 2013.

I used the color as the dominant color for this mixed media piece on a wooden board.  I happen to like 2014's color more...radiant orchid.

This piece will make a great digital background!





SPRING THAW ON MAUMEE BAY


I like to be one of the first to go beach combing after winter so that I can find treasures first.  

There is still some ice along the lake shore so I'll have to go back but I still managed to find shells and driftwood.  I'm always on the look out for beach glass.


Shell opened up in the sun. Kind of look like butterfly wings.


Deer tracks along the water.


The ice was clear and with the sun they looked like gems.


More gems.


The beach is made of these tiny shells that breakdown into sand.


Shell frozen in the ice just off shore.


I love the slivers of ice.
