I couldn’t go past this beautiful golden fungi on my walk today without taking a photo
and then I inverted it, and look how glorious it is – like a little fairyland fantasy world.
Life can be like that – golden and then blue – but it is still wonderful in either colour.
I collected these leaves from my garden and then I played with layouts for a new resin art piece I am going to create.
I like to use a frame, and then take a photograph, as it helps me “see” them better.
I wanted to use the ferns branching out from the corners, but I couldn’t get a design to work that I really liked. I think the last frame in this set is the best.
Fern, Seed and Leaves #1
Fern, Seed, Twig and Leaf #2
Fern, Seed and Twigs
I made minor adjustments to the seeds in each of these frames below, and it’s interesting to see how each small variation impacts on the flow of the piece.
My favourite is #4 then #2 (I think) .
Leaves and Seeds #1
Leaves and Seeds #2
Leaves and Seeds #3
Leaves and Seeds #4
This was a fun exercise, but I will probably go with the first arrangement I tried (below), because I like it’s simplicity, and the fuzzy lichen on the twig.
