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.

Tantalizing Crayons

Tantalizing TranslucentsHow you seen today’s Polymer Clay Daily post? If not, go ahead. I’ll wait.

Ok? It brought to mind Lindly’s first video, Tantalizing Translucents. The entire video is dedicated to translucent clay and includes projects that take advantage of the see-through nature of the clay (like Mokume Gane) and projects that encourage you to play with inclusions (like the Crayon Pendants featured on the PCD blog today). As was mentioned in the blog, Lindly does have the crayon technique written up on her website, but if you’re a more visual learner, you can watch her demonstrate it on DVD or VHS.

Lindly’s was the first mokume gane I tried, and it’s still my favorite – layers of vaguely-colored translucent clay and metal leaf make for a finished product with gorgeous depth to it.
