Snapping Up A Storm.
I'm taking lots of photographs at the present. Most of them are to put onto Etsy, either in the Artmixter shop, or the new project, Myrtle and Rose. I've been learning a lot about how to take an interesting photograph. I've also been finding things out about the things I've been making. I'm exploring the design of hats, fascinators, hair slides. I've even been wearing the odd one, though I have to say, I'm not really sure that they suit me...to be honest, I think I'm just too old to wear some of them at least. Frilly little ribbon clips just don't do it on a fifty-something... sigh. They do, however, look fab on a twenty-something...especially one who looks as good as my friend Gemma Samson Munday, who blogs as Norfolk Homemade Mum. Doesn't she look wonderful in these photographs?
The top fascinator is made from a felt rose, with wonderful orange feathers. The second is made from black satin ribbon with more, slightly different orange feathers (well, if you're going to do it, you might as well wear this season's colours...) . The last one is cute, I hope... a brown ribbon bow on a comb, with some yellow ribbon beneath it, and a yellow gingham button on the top. Great fun! Now to make more felt...
Not all my fascinators are this frivilous...or this colour! I just love orange!
