~Dainty White~

Dainty White

A flower's appeal is in its contradictions - so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance, so small in size yet big in beauty, so short in life yet long on effect.
~Adabella Radici~

It seems like it's been far too long since I've taken any TtV photos.
This is one I took a couple weeks ago with the Enigma shot.
As you can tell, some texture effects were added.
The flowers remind me of vintage lace, which is how I got around to adding those particular style of layers.
Dainty White was the magnet that Liss won in the contest - I think she'll like it!

Speaking of magnets, you six lucky winners will be happy to know I mailed the prizes to you today. Please let me know once you receive them. To those of you who weren't so lucky, bear with me, a BIGGER and BETTER prize giveaway is in the works. I don't have all my ducks in a row, yet, but soon! I know, I know, promises.....promises.

Oh yeah, and before I forget (since it's waaaay past my bedtime), I wrote an article about TtV that was published on the blog Words:Irrational. Alright, who am I kidding.....I have been working on this piece for Mr. A Marques for sometime now.....I can't help it, I'm slow! If you're interested in the technique you may want to have a read, I worked pretty diligently on this article.....so please do let me know what you think.

Be creative with old cameras - Through the Viewfinder


  1. Oh la la you have started your own shop. Way to go.
    I know I am going to love my magnet I have made room on my fridge and already have some kids art work for it to hold up.
    Your article was really helpful, I just need a macro lens and someone to build me a contraption that goes between both cameras and I will be set. I have this technique in the back of my mind to try some day as I think the effects are really lovely

  2. I have some similar tiny flowers but they are redish purple. Very nice.

  3. A great image, and I very much enjoyed your article.

  4. your ttv-pic is super again!

    i found your article very useful and bookmarked it to come back to it as soon as i find the time to get involved...

  5. What a lovely photo - great work and link!

  6. The picture has an old country charm affect. I wish I had more time to experiment ... one day.

  7. I love this photograph! It really does have a lacy feel to it and your background is wonderful too. I also love your daisy photo in your last post. Mine are just starting to bloom...Thank you for stopping by my blog and for your lovely comments! Roxanne

  8. Giveaways are so FUN! Wish magnets worked on stainless steel!

  9. liss: Well, it's not entirely ready yet.....I've been dragging! Contraptions are easy to make, tape is your friend :)

    greg: It's called Cow Parsnip!

    Dan: Thanks, glad you took the time to read it :o)

    johanna: I think you are my TtV photo's favorite fan! I hope you get to try the technique sometime soon.

    please sir: Many thanks :)

    meridith: Don't worry, you'll find some time, maybe you'll be interested in a new project I'm planning - I'll keep you posted!

    River Garden: The same goes for you, Roxanne.....Thank you!

    fifi: I never thought of that! Another reason why those fridges look so sterile, but they do have finger prints!?! The next giveaway is not going to be magnets though, so stay tuned!

  10. Mr A Marques?!? Now I feel old. Drop the Mr and it would have been perfect. :) joking.

    As I told you before, the article was just great. It really spiked my curiosity to try the technique.
    And keep creating those TtV pearls. You have a fan.

  11. Beautiful pic, wonderful quote. Thanks...

  12. YEA! i got my magnet today! check out my post. thank you so much.

  13. I absolutely LOVE this, and must...will...try it!!
