White Displays To Inspire....Various Vessels

Hello to you....and you...and you....

Just a quick post as I was playing around with some textures and actions on a handful of my photos today, trying each day to master a bit more of Photoshop. I run a pretty busy website and I need to be careful of the time that I devote to working on my photography, but I do so enjoy enjoy it!

This afternoon I put together some very simple displays in various vessels from my studio that would be easy for anyone to do with something similar. I hope that these inspire you.....and you....and you....

An inverted antique French beaded dome with some white paper pom flowers
You can do this in any bowl or vessel....make your own poms or find them in the bridal section of your party store
White buttons in a simple silver bowl....I love the juxtaposition of the patina on the old white and shiny silver
Old aqua ball jar filled with mica flakes in my studio...sparkle in a subtle way with the zinc top all tattered

Lovely old skeleton key, tattered ribbons, burlap thread pulls and more old buttons
Faded grandeur of antique pearls in old tin molds

Antique chandelier crystals in white ironstone relish dishes
Various textures from Kim Klassen and actions from Florabella
Linking up today with Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday and Faded Charms White Wednesday
