      Yep, he has made two canvases for us so far. He still owes me two more, so I can complete my bedroom wall, but it seems his “inspiration” is not there these days.

    These are great photos. Love the top 2, but all of them are so good. We had the same idea for dotted line:)

      Thank you! I used an app from . If you increase the net over the image it creates an image almost identical to the photo out of your library. Pretty amazing stuff. Check it out!

    I saw your first shot for geometry and had a hand-to-forehead moment. I had such a hard time with that prompt. But loved yours!! The collage is amazing as well! Very creative…

    Beautifully done! We used to have a bunch of chilies hanging in our chili themed kitchen. I think they were a casualty of the last move me made. I just love all your interpretations this week.

    WOW! These amazing images really stretched my mind. When I read the list and then saw what you photos you included I started thinking about all the ways to interpret the list. It made me think outside the box and I love that! I might have to try this scavenger hunt a try some time, because it might help me to use my mind :)

      I am so excited. You will love this. It is so much fun. And yes, you have incredible imagination, sky is the limit!

  22. kathy August 21, 2011 at 06:58 #

    Totally impressed with your collage! Mine was a real novice attempt, haha. You give me something to aspire to. I also really love the waviness of your “on the dotted line” shot. Gives it real motion and fluidity. Beautiful. I love your whole collection and am going to follow your blog….thanks for the inspiration!

      Thank you Aleta. You should have seen me trying to climb out of there through one of these triangles. That would have made you laugh.
      I loved your hunt, the jewellery you make is beautiful.

    Ok – beautiful pix. Another thing we have in common is our kids painting on canvas. I love your son’s artwork. I love all kid’s artwork. (-:

      Kids combined with creativity and mess have limitless possibilities. He has natural eye for balance and his ‘abstract’ is so much more pleasing to the eye then mine would ever be. Us, adults, we over think. That’s why he creates and I clean 😉

    I love your shots. Cool angle for the geometry picture. I had thought about taking a shot of the road for dotted line, but your shot is really great. Love the road.

      I bought them because they looked great at the Market in Seattle. We used them once and we are not going to again. Will spare you any details.
