Seth Apter has put the call out for treasure hunters to come and play once again and knowing how fun this is I didn't want to miss out! Below is a link to my "Buried Treasure" which is not actually that old. I posted it on New Years Eve 2010 and I've chosen it for it's beautiful photographs (if I may say so myself!) and because it's a good time of year for me to do a little check point of sorts! In the post below I set myself some TREEsolutions...
***Lucky Dip***: Festival of the Trees: "I was wondering what I was going to do for my NY eve post and happened to come across this blog call out from Jasmine and Nature's Whispers ..."
I enjoyed reading them again, even though they hadn't been forgotten I hadn't consciously pursued them either. It seems committing them to
paper blog was the sowing of the seed and since then they've been quietly growing. Most of them at least!
TREEsolution #1: One of the beautiful treelines my eyes have enjoyed this year. This one was found on a driveway and not in the bush but that didn't stop the air being filled with the beautiful song of the native Tui. How awesome it is to take time out to look and listen!
TREEsolution # 2 Not exactly guerrilla art, but I have enjoyed making several 'landcastles' and flat works.There's still time for flags in trees...
TREEsoloution # 3. I've really, really enjoyed this one! These papers are dyed with natures dyes (eucalyptus and walnut) brewed on the stove top at home. Awesome collage fodder!
TREEsoloution #4. I said I would improve my 'green-ness' when it came to paper. Recycling and reusing is second nature and first preference for me although I said I thought there was always room for improvement...I'm not sure if I really have done this. Nearly all of the paper in the collages above is recycled and/or re purposed but that's not a new and improved thing. That makes this a timely reminder to try a little harder so watch this space!
Thank you Seth for another great online collaboration opportunity!
