I am not sure what this beautiful little flower is called but I adore the colours in these images and the blur between what is in and out of focus. I hope you all have a super week planned. I’m busy planning for the Nelson Art Expo in July! You can ready more about it in my recent post here.
Hydrangeas have got to be another (!) one of my faves. A huge bouquet of precious little flowers all bursting with different shades of colour.
This week I’m busy with another little project that Alana from The Little Leaf and I will be sharing on our blogs. It is very arty and designed to get our creativity flowing. Keep an eye out on Saturday for the first day of it!
Some super pretty pink flowers shots. I’m still getting hang off this new camera and working out what works well, the different settings, how different the photos look on your camera! There is a lot to learn and I’m loving it. Whoever invented the camera is one person I’d love to meet. I’d probably just thank them hugely as I cant imagine my life without a camera.
I just googled it and found some interesting info on the first cameras and who invented them here. So now I know who to hug! Have a fab week, friends!
I thought it was about time I shared a few photos of my neighbourhood- beautiful Nelson! I love living here. It is absolutely brimming with artists, delicious homemade food, seaside cafes, beaches, nature… the list goes on. Above are a few photos of Arlo and I enjoying Nelson as this summer comes to an end. The mornings and evenings are getting a slight chill in the air so we are savouring every last beam of sunlight. Although a hot cocoa by the fire doesn’t sound so bad either…
Have a fab week friends!
Heyhey! Today I’m sharing a DIY on how to make this little beaded buzzy bee necklace. I had a sudden flashback of making these bee’s as a kid and wanted to see if I could remember how to make them. Turns out they were easier to make now than when I was 10!! You could possibly make them bigger than I have if you used bigger beads.
For this DIY you will need: thin wire, 2 different coloured beads (for the body and wings), pliers and chain.
1. Put 3 beads onto a piece of wire and pull both ends of the wire through 2 of the beads. 2. You should have a little triangle of beads as shown. 3. Add 3 more beads onto the wire and repeat the process. 4. Add 2 beads and repeat, then 1 bead and repeat. By this stage you should have a perfect body shape for the bee. I had to really tighten the wire to get it sitting like this. 5. Curl the tops of the wire to make the antennae. 6. Use another piece of wire for wings. I simply twisted the ends together and attached them to the body.
Next, attach the bees to the chain. I made 2 of them and attached them at different lengths on the necklace. Super cute huh? I am really enjoying sharing some beaded DIY’s! You can check out how to make an amethyst necklace here.
Today I am participating in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. This weeks theme is ‘lost in the details’. This is my favourite way to photograph nature, looking at all the intricate details that would usually be missed. Here are a few photos that I haven’t shared on the blog before and that fit in perfectly with this weeks challenge! Have you ever joined in with this challenge? Leave a link so I can check out your post!
