Photo Inspirations

Also while away in NZ I took some photos of patterns and colours in nature - bark, flowers, leaves etc. I don't know if I ever will use them but I'd love to incorporate some of this beauty somehow in my jewellery. There's no rush. Here are some of the things I spotted.

Julie from JulieChats also uses photos for inspiration. Last year while stuck for ideas for her scrap booking, Julie photographed details from her garden. Here is one of them; a gorgeous mushroom straight out of a fairy story. The colours and textures are lovely. You can also look at some of the other pictures she took on her post.

Hi Cate. The picture is the rock wall of the Rotomahana lake. The steam escapes from the rock and the yellow is, I think, sulfur. The place is amazing. A cross between a moonscape and an underground cave but on the outside. I'll put some more pictures up for you.
