Merry Xmas

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.


Have a fabulous weekend…

#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.

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.


Here’s hoping you have a wonderful week… and don’t forget to share and tag your Monday Macros #PssMondayMacro

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.S. Desley is back on board tomorrow, with so more of her amazing images and tips!!

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?


I also have special birthday gifts for you as well.  Visit my website and I have loads of Digital Packs for Lightroom & Photoshop you can download for free. There is also some quite cheap. Check back from time to time as I will have more added every now and then.


Til then, don’t forget to share your Saturday Still Life #PssSaturdayStillLife and #PixelSistersStudio so we can see your gorgeous creations
