Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot in Two Ways

 

Smoky Mountains 2013 149

Smoky Mountains 2013 150

My recent trip to the Smokey Mountains resulted in these beautiful shots of the clouds over the peaks. The best part was driving through the misty clouds on twisty-turny roads up and down the Tennessee and North Carolina Smokeys. Clearly, this is an example of why they are called the “Smokey Mountains”.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Picture by Jamie Nowinski

Everything old is new again!  This re-purposed sculpture was spotted basking by the barn at a Corn Maze at Treinen Farm just outside of Madison, Wisconsin.  Using old parts from cars, machines, and other items around the farm, the artist created several creatures for our enjoyment.  This one looks like a raccoon. See the eyes? It gives it away.

You can get involved in the Weekly Photo Challenge, too!  Here is how it works:

  • Each week there will be a prompt. You take a photo of your interpretation of the prompt and place it on your blog.  Do this anytime before Friday of the following week or before a new prompt is given.

  • To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

  • Subscribe to The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.

It is so easy, and so much fun!  Be Challenged, Today!  :)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

 

Table Geometry found in a weekend excursion.  The make-up of the table and the grids on the benches are showered with geometric shapes.  Even the bricks on the walk are bursting with geometry.

Share your interpretation of geometry by posting a picture for the The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry. Be sure to add postaday to your tag line so that your photo will be easy for others to see.

Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Sign

It is hard to find a place where there are not signs. I am always fascinated by the signs that are posted in our world. Could we survive without a sign?

Bleach Pen Adventures

Posted on

Back in June, I reblogged The Renegade Seamstress’s T-Shirt Bleach Pen Design Tutorial.  I thought it was such a cool project that I had to try it myself.   Here is how I created a really cool summer shirt for less than $6.

SUPPLIES                       

1. Clorox Bleach Pen

2. Garage Sale shirt

3. Paper bag

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Insert brown paper bag into shirt so that the bleach does not leak through.  I did this project on a card table in the garage. I covered the card table with a plastic tablecloth.

2. Using the thin tip of the bleach pen, draw the design you wish to have on the shirt.  I chose simple circles.

3.  Let shirt dry.  The longer it dries the whiter the design will be.  I left my shirt to dry for about three hours.

4. Carefully rinse off bleach with cold water.  Wash separately to avoid bleaching other items.

5. Wear with pride.

 

 

Other ways to use the bleach pen could be to make personalized pillow cases, bags, and towels.  I also thought it might be interesting to bleach a pair of dark gym shoes with a design.  There are so many applications for this art.

Please share your ideas or projects with me when you try the Bleach Pen Technique.

Pictures on Grandmother’s Fridge

Posted on

Colorful works of love and imagination grace the cold appliance making it appear warm and welcoming.  It is the perfect frame.  Art is viewed daily and critiqued. The art lover changes the pictures as the artist creates new works to replace the old.  Never was there a better place than Grandmother’s Fridge.
