And if you’re not, you could be. This excellent new tutorial by Adria Filion shows you how to make an elegant faux jade pendant with a creative twist. When you turn out the lights… it glows!
Now to those of you who didn’t bother to listen to me and are still sitting there in front of your computers, how about a little flickr eye candy? I made a mosaic of all of the photos I favorited this week. How does a photo get to be one of my favorites? Generally it is a color thing. As you can see, I was drawn to turquoise a lot this week.
Sometimes I favorite photos of things I’d like to make myself, or things with ideas I’d like to incorporate into my work or my personal style. But about 2/3 of the time it’s just colors and how they are used that appeal to me. If you click on the mosaic, you can see where each of the individual photos came from.
I have to admit I didn’t “get” flickr for a while, but now I just love it – the way that people can form communities based solely on images is fascinating to me. I’ve found a lot of blogs that interest me just by following links on flickr photos that I find appealing.
Ok, your reprieve is over. Go make some glow-in-the-dark jade!
