Was messing about with photoshop using a picture I took a couple of evenings ago. It was the most perfect night, warm and sultry, as every evening should be. One of my cats was enjoying the it too, snoozing on top of our car, so I grabbed my camera and took a quick snapshot. I loaded it into Photoshop and played around with lighting etc and this was the result.

Creation Collaboration, and an apology.

I feel I ought to tender an apology to this fabulous collaboration and the ladies who passionately set it up for having been absent in this for the last couple of weeks. Last wednesday was awful, could barely get my head off the pillow and everytime I tried the room span and my head pounded, hence my absence.
I haven't forgotten about you ladies though, I'm here, even if I am a little late. I love visiting other blogs, being awestruck and inspired by the things I see.

These beautiful earrings caught my eye. From the blog of Aga Art these are really elegant, a step away from the 'norm', which is something that always appeals to me. The skill and craftmanship that it must take to produce such gorgeous jewellery is inspiring. Check out the rest of the blog too, you won't be disappointed.

Til next time


Deviant tuesday

Posted by Titanium Wild , 11 May 2010 11:49:00 am

I am an huge fan of Deviant Art and have my very own gallery on there. As I haven't had anything new to contribute to my gallery of late I thought I'd showcase the work of some very talented artists who also have galleries there.

I've chosen my favourite mythical creature, the dragon, as my theme. So much Dragon art is formulaic, and looks much like all the rest. Here are some pieces that for me stood out from the crowd.

And this last one is my absolute favourite.

I know this isn't either soapy or arty, but I just had to share this picture of my new forest pony, Lukey. He's either asleep, or hyper, there is no middle ground, bless him. This is him in one of his more mellow moments.

Ssshhhhhh, don't wake him up.

Have you ever been drawn to something......

Browsing on Stephanie Pui-Mun Law's site Shadowscapes tarot I came across this image

I don't know why this card called me....there are so many beautiful images on there, so many bright colours to be bewitched by, so why this fairly monochrome, simple image?

The meaning given for this particular card is 

"Exploration, seeking out the uncharted, expanding horizons, taking a long view, leadership"

 I can imagine myself standing there, on the precipice, surveying all around me, starring with wonder into the distance, feeling totally calm, at peace. 
If you believe in tarot and the meanings behind it you'll perhaps tell me it's a sign. If not, maybe you'll tell me it's simply coincidence that I'm at a cross roads in my life and just happened to find this image.
Whatever the explanation I find myself looking into the future with a certain clarity that wasn't there before.

Spooky, eh?

One thing about blogging that I love

Posted by Titanium Wild , 6 May 2010 9:55:00 am that on one's virtual travels, there are so many delightful things to uncover and be inspired by.

One such thing I found is a most gorgeous soap I came across on Etsy.  It's visually stunning, and I just bet it smells divine. Topped with fennel seeds, the lovely delicate blue top is complimented by a creamy light layer underneath. This ladles and jellyspoons, it the top tottie of the soaping world, prime soap p0rn.


Experimental bath whip

I'm so so excited, and terrified about this product as I haven't a clue if it'll work out, but you don't know if you don't try, eh?
It's basically a kind of rebatch, with additional liquid and oils added, fragrance added after the rebatch, therefore you use less.
It's whipped, whipped, then whipped some more!

I'm also trialling the packaging, so in effect this experiment is twofold......ooh, exciting stuff *giggle*
