Colour my world, with creativity

No doubt many of my new blogging friends will wonder some of the name to my blog, Carole's Creative Corner, when it's more about photograpic record of scenes and birds.  It makes me think some, about where my blog started, way back in 2008, to how it has evolved, and where it is now, four years later.   Cardmaking, various paper-crafts featured mostly, alongwith lots of garden/flower photos. 

Often, botanical items featured, like this crocus paper-cutting, where inspiration and pattern had been found inside Claudia Hopf's Paper Cutting Pattern Book.  A brush with watered-down coffee granules, and a little yellow water-coloured petals made for my rendition.

Some became cards for friends,


gumblossoms from my quilling days

...and bottlebrushes too.

the Sturts-Desert-Pea, paper-sculpture card



  There were the Ginkgo girls from this post


a play with graphics came about in this post from mushroom photos after the rains


some zentangle-inspired art




And now it's getting out and about with my camera, mostly close to home,  and sharing photos with my blogging friends, that creates new posts for me.  Whenever I can find birds especially, and manage to capture them in a photograph is a special treat.

So, not to let my birding friends down while I'd just wanted to drift along down memory-lane for a moment there, I've saved one especially for you too.  Glad you made it this far!

so no-one is mislead, this's not a new site. Same site, same name, just this post was a step-back in time as to why my blog was (and still is) titled Carole's Creative Corner.

You're multi-talented, Carole! No question about that. I enjoyed each and every picture.

It's amazing how we go through different stages of interest ... I was searching online the other day for a "golden syrup dumpling" recipe and settled on one submitted by none other than yourself... when I saw the photo beside the recipe I immediately recognized you from your blog photo.
I think photography is such a beautiful hobby ... where we see the world through different eyes.

What a delightful wander down memory lane! Those mushrooms are amazing, btw, and I love the drawing on the ginkgo leaves. A creative soul, indeed!
