MY WORLD

The lovely lady Deb over on Carrots and Kids made the suggestion of starting a new series called My World and I am going to join her. It is about showing a small bit from your world.
Above is a small bit of My World.
It is an Oriental poppy from my garden that has lost its petals and pearls and beads from old broken necklaces.
My world often involves - something from my garden plus something old, worn and sometimes broken, often already used and probably picked up at a car boot sale or flee market.
Then it involves a lot of arranging and trying things out - colours, textures, shapes and forms.
Then it involves a lot of photographing, uploading onto Photoshop and editing.
Finally some of the pictures end up on my blog and I put some on Flickr.

P.S. Lovely Sarah who writes the blog ArtShades is also doing My World!
Sarah makes wonderful, very creativ, handmade lampshades.

En härlig engelsk dam som heter Deb och som skriver bloggen Carrots and Kids föreslog att börja en serie som heter My World och jag tänker följa i hennes spår. Det handlar om att visa små delar av sitt liv.
Ovan är en bit av min värld.
Det är en jättevallmo som redan har tappat sina kronblad och pärlor från halsband som har gått sönder.
Min värld består ofta av något från min trädgård plus något gammalt, ofta slitet, återanvänt och antagligen köpt på någon loppmarknad.
Sedan blir det en hel del arrangerande, provar olika färger, stukturer och former.
Efter det blir det mycket fotografering, Photoshop och redigering.
Sist hamnar några av bilderna på min blogg och Flickr.

Dear Ingrid, What a most imaginative, attractive and interesting piece of 'Your World'. I love how you combine here the man-made with the natural.

Your world is gorgeous! I would never have thought to combine poppies & pearls, but the shot is beautiful, Ingrid.

Snyggt! Älskar jättevallmo.... och tillsammans med pärlorna blev det som en ny blomma igen..... Vad du kommer på :-)

Längtar tills att mina vallmo ska slå ut.....

Ha en bra dag imorgon!

Well, I think your world is very beautiful. :)

Your poppies, pearls and beads make a wonderful combination.

Aren't poppies just wonderful flowers, with their tightly held bulbs, papery petals that burst forths, and then, the seed pods are sculptural.

I have to say that some of those glass beads in your photo do remind me of many that I bought over the years from a wonderful bead shop in the Covent Garden area of London. Could have been simply called ... the Bead Shop.

Cheers!
