Visual Inspiration

April 14, 2009


While browsing around at Etsy recently, I was blown away by the photograph above.  I loved the poppy pods, and I LOVED the “shabby chic” or vintage look to the photo.

After clicking over to ScarletBeautiful’s Etsy store, I learned that this photo is part of her “Through the Viewfinder” series.  Basically, these photos are taken though the viewfinder of any camera with another camera.  Who would have thunk it?  Not me!  I can’t look at this enough. 

But was this the only thing I loved?  Not by a long shot.  There were many other beautiful shots using this technique, and tons of others that were such visual inspiration for me.  I just had to write ScarletBeautiful and ask permission to share this with my readers.

While Etsy is a great place to find cool stuff to buy, it is also like a virtual gallery, where every page brings more creativity right to your computer screen.  I encourage you to visit today and get inspired!

My Etsy site  is there, also, if you’re interested in taking a look…!

I’m an Etsy girl now!

After waiting months to get up the courage, I have finally started filling my Etsy store, and I’m very excited about it.  Like all new things, this was difficult, because there is always that doubt that anyone will actually like my stuff.  I mean, what if they laugh?? I hate self-doubt, but unfortunately I battle it constantly.  I finally chose to conquer my fear and JUST DO IT!

I invite you to check out my shop @ . I’m working hard in my spare (!) time to take more photos and get them uploaded.  For any of you artists out there who are wondering about Etsy, you really should give it a try – almost immediately after listing items people are looking at them.  It is all very gratifying and empowering to put yourself out there.  I would welcome your comments and feedback.

If I can do it, you can!
