Crafty Photography

July 15th  

Many crafters are obsessive people in that once they begin something they cannot stop.  How many times have you heard yourself saying  'Just let me finish this row,' to find yourself still sitting there half an hour later.  My latest obsession is much like that only with a smartphone App called Prisma.  If you value your time, do not go and investigate this App, nor indeed should you down load it because if like me you can be obsessive you will loose hours of your time. 

I enjoy inviting you to join me for a cup of tea or more often than not a glass of wine and I kid you not you really may need that refreasment whilst scrolling through this post today.  ALERT:  This is an incredibly photo heavy post and little writing, scroll thorough quickly and just stop where your eye is caught by something, I really could not be selective and have shared with you 5 photos of my crochet that have been given the prisma treatment.


My latest creation, if you are curious there is a blog
post just about this!  Lampshade bling












My faithful painted bench and two outdoor crocheted cushions, these cushions are great as I have backed them in oilcloth, perfect for outdoors!  Outdoor cushions

The below blanket is called Stripy as we go and I love it, but be aware of the different stiches each row requires as the tension is different!  Mood blanket

Before the photo app was used



























Leaving my mandala crochet table cloth outside, as was the plan all along, one would be forgiven in believing we have had a sunny summer as the vivid colours have been bleached away in just a couple of months!

And for the non crafters of you, below is a photo of sunflowers in my kitchen this morning, it works so well this app on people too but I thought I would spare you my morning not quite awake face...

Hoping you are still here with me and have not 'switched' off from the colossal number of photographs I have shared, see I am obsessive! 
 
Sharing my 5 different photos with you and linking in with the lovely Amy
 
 
♥  Happy photographing to you all

    1. Welcome Teresa. I too live in an old house. Dates back to early 1600s. It's wonderful and I love it but it does come with its own quirks, sure you understand what I mean x

  18. The App reminds me of the Waterlogue App, which also can be addictive. It is amazing to see how different colors change a pattern...I have scrolled through several times to admire them all :) Happy Weekend! xx

  20. Oh my I love how the app has created and changed the original photos, they really do make you look at it very differently. I can certainly see I may have to give this a try, thanks for sharing!
