Scavenger Hunt Sunday



Well, I am thankful that I was able to get all but one of these prompts
inside this week - I think I saw the sun but once as it's been raining, raining, and raining some more!
And I'm NOT complaining mind you, we have been in such a severe drought, it's
just that this adventure girl is getting a bit of cabin fever!!

And well, everything is overflowing its banks . . . .

I'm hoping to be as lucky this coming week . . . I don't think the rain is leaving anytime soon.

So on to the prompts . . .

1. Love - I sure have gotten a lot of mileage out of my pink roses this week, and decided to combine an image of a rose with some words I wrote this week about love . . . .



2. Duplicated - I have a bit of an obsession lately with reflections . . . AND taking the image, duplicating it,   and combing the two.



3. Trend - My trend is to well, not follow trends . . . I have a tendency to dance to the beat of my own drum, oblivious to what is in or out - it makes life a whole lot easier! ; )  But, and I'm so glad because I have a photo from this week that works, I googled color trends for Spring 2012 and Tangerine Tango is one of them. And so is Cabaret {intense rose}, a form of pink and my favorite color. So it looks like I'll be trendy by accident this Spring!




4. Paper -  This is a two for one {Love and paper}, I have always wanted to do this and had a hard time finding the right book . . . it definitely needs to be a bigger book so the pages will stay in place.



5. Plastic - This prompt had me looking around the house to find something interesting. . . and then I remembered these little beauties in my studio . . . vintage lucite trumpet beads {aka, plastic}. Now I'm feeling a little inspired to create something with them. Lucite was used extensively in war supplies during WWII after which they started using it for the ever popular lucite rings in the 50's and 60's.


Until the next hunt,

Love, Kim
XO


P.S. - Don't forget to check out everyone else's prompts, they are always inspiring!

Wonderful interpretation on this week's words and fabulous processing. Very creative indeed!

Marvett Smith said...

Ok. A few things... I love that first image. Absolutely gorgeous. Second, I love that you dance to your own beat. Me too. Sometimes I catch myself wanting to be caught up in trends, but it's just not who I am. It's like trying to fit a square into a round hole. It just doesn't work for me. Third, your spring images are stunning. Absolutely stunning my friend!

Linda R said...

WOW!!! everyone of these shots are fabulous. I can't even pick a favorite cause they are all wonderful..

Hugs, Linda
