#PssSaturdayStillLife

Hello again, Julz here, following on from a recent post about D.I.Y home natural dyes for cheesecloth, I thought I would stage a little Still Life shoot for today’s post, using this fabulous vintage scotch box and a few lovely flowers.

#pssThursdayTheme – Reflections

This week I thought I would use reflections for our theme, any reflections; in a mirror, in water, a puddle, a window. So much can be done with reflections and it is a lot of fun capturing them.

This one was shot at BlueLotus Water Gardens in the Yarra Valley, last Summer. Lotus blossom’s need about 8 eight a day of direct sunlight, they close up each night and open again each morning. Many have used the Lotus Blossom as a religious or pagan icon and is often a token or symbol of rebirth.

Share your Reflections pictures with us and don’t forget to hashtag them #PssThurdayThemes and #PixelSistersStudio.

#PssMondayMacro

Hi, Julz, here again, for another week. Today is Monday, so that means Macro. Yesterday we went for a lovely long drive in the wonderful Spring sunshine, I thought I would post a few images from our wonderful day in the country.

These were all taken at the Pyalong Trestle Bridge…on Central Northern Victoria about 2.5 hours from Melbourne.

#PssSweetSunday

Julz, here again, to finish off another week. As some of you may already know, yesterday was my birthday. And what is a birthday without cake and friends and that impossibly embarrassing birthday song? It’s not as sweet as mine was. I also got a new camera! So please excuse these images as a little sub par, I am on a huge learning curve with my new camera, but it seemed only fitting to shoot a few snaps with my new camera and just a few of the cupcakes.

Obviously, focusing at high aperture is my first priority 😀

So my sweet Sunday is spent on the warm glow from my birthday celebrations. Perhaps I can get some pretty flowers to practice with?

Share with us your #pssSweetSunday pic……..it doesn’t have to be cupcakes or even food, a sweet moment is just as good. Don’t forget to hashtag #PssSweetSunday and #PixelSisterStudio so we can see your wonderful images too.

P.P.S The chocolate one mostly in focus…that was the one I ate!

Happy Saturday! Julz here again, Yay it’s my birthday, so I bought myself a little present, and why wouldn’t I? This is a lovely old(possible replica) timber scotch box and it was only $5.00, fabulous!!

So I had a little play around with it and did three different set ups, used some hand dyed cheesecloth from yesterday’s post; this time, green tea, it makes a lovely natural ecru color, isn’t it simply divine?
