TWiP: Close to Home

This Week in Pictures, Week 33, 2021

Unlike Week 33s past, the 2021 Week 33 did not involve any beachy day trips, weekend getaways, or intercontinental travel. I barely left the house. On the plus side, I did manage to procure a bouquet of zinnias, which inspired some photo play and kept me plenty entertained.

TWiP: Window Box Chicken

This Week in Pictures, Week 31, 2021

I don’t know how the time manages to pass so quickly, but it always does. It’s August already. I feel like the summer just started, and yet we’re only a few short weeks away from pumpkin latte season. I’m starting to feel a little desperate to make sure I’ve availed myself of enough summer joy while it’s still here.

TWiP: Instant Gratification

This Week in Pictures, Week 30, 2021

It’s been a little over two years since I bought my first instant camera, and in that time, I’ve taken a few photos that I love, and a whole lot of photos that are kind of terrible. I don’t know what keeps me plunking down my hard-earned cash on yet another pack of film, or worse, a whole new camera to love/hate, but here we are. As of this week, I’ve got four instant cameras and two and a half photo albums full of evidence of my misadventures. I do think, though, that I may have finally turned a corner with my latest purchase…

My latest obsession

I’m finally working on a project that’s been percolating for over a year – family tree magnets. I’ve made more photo transfers this weekend than I care to count, and have tried out two different designs for the magnets.

For the first set, I used all of the different patterns in my “Americana” color scheme and framed b&w family photos with them. For the second set I made an elaborate batch of skinner blends. I started with 4 main blends for the 4 sets of grandparents, and then blended the colors in those blends to make their children’s blends. Confused yet? Here is a sample. Left to right is the original photo, a magnet done in the first style, and a magnet done in the second style.

I’m thinking of combining the two styles. I like the patterns on the first, but I like the white and black outlines on the second one. Looks like I’m going to be making another pile of transfers this week…
