Colorful Skies

"The earth laughs in flowers" Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happy Sky Watch Friday everyone. Rainy season has arrived in the tropics, lots of overcast drizzly days with pops of color from all the jacaranda trees coming into season.  We like to celebrate with the local Jacaranda festival. 
Photographers often recommend if you have a great view remember to turn around and check the other aspects where I caught a bit of the urban wildlife or brush turkeys foraging for lunch. Pretty amazing they are not bothered by busy roads or folks walking by.
A little peek into a new class I am working on using products in different ways to create textures.

Sandy Stairs

Beach stairs are often a bit of a surprise, you never know what the tide might have washed away or washed up. This is one of my favourite quotes about stairs but am sure there are lots of other good ones.  Happy Sky Watch Friday everyone, click the link to see what bloggers from all over have found in their sky to share this week.

Great Discoveries

Happy Sky Watching friends, this week's photo is the road back from the beach, bit sandy underfoot and a beautiful blue sky kind of afternoon. Click the link to see what other bloggers from all over have found in their view of Sky Watch Friday.
Adding a link to my Helmar post with some discoveries in creating texture with adhesives.
Helmar has posted their Design Team call for the coming year {linked here} and well worth looking into for our creative friends, they are a lovely bunch to work with.
