What to say

This past week I was at a loss of what to write about. I think I got consumed with Facebook. So...now back at it.

Today we have something about weddings.
I am always looking for unique items but who has a huge storage vault for it all? 
Not me. 
But she does...

{I do have my secret sources though}

Flowers - A to Z

I wish I thought of it myself but rather than reinvent the wheel. Let's learn from SarahB over at DesignSponge. She started a column "Flowers A to Z", so here is her first post for A a couple weeks back.

As for last weeks or shall I say the last two week assignment. I look at flowers continually and though it may be a rose or some kind of shrub there are always variations in color, size, and shape. Everything in nature has its own unique qualities. Just why no person is the same.
This was more of a thinking assignment and I plan to try and keep this one going. Always looking at and appreciating our differences, rather than our similarities.

Contour Drawing
Pick an object, let's say a shoe. Put the point of your pen, pencil or other drawing tool on the paper in front of you. Determine where that point is on your shoe. Believe that the pencil will faithfully follow the outlines and details of the shoe, as the eye does. The eye must mover very slowly, the same speed as the pencil - simultaneously.
Do it three different ways.
Start at the top of the object and draw down to its base.
Start at the bottom and go up.
Start at one corner and draw to the opposite.

Assignment cont.

Why does it seem there are too many things to do in one day?

I have been looking at similar things and noting there similarities and differences. But haven't put it pencil to pad, yet. I am going to keep going with this assignment for the week.

Until then, keep exploring.
