Sparkles (Round 2)

So if you haven't been to my new website yet, you should check it out. And even if you have been, go check it out again because a few things have changed. Namely, there is now even more glitter! HA.

I think I might have a teensy little obsession. And I only made it worse last week by buying this little vial of magic (I was sold by the WOW-with-an-exclamation-point! on the top...only awesomeness could possibly be inside):

Many moons ago, I pinned this image to one of my pinterest boards...or maybe all of my pinterest boards. I'm REALLY in love with it.  I tried to recreate it once, but it didn't turn out quite the same. So I decided to experiment with my new magic glitter tube to see what I could come up with.

It started with a pile. Sexy, I know.

It took some experimenting to get what I was looking for, but once I switched off the autofocus on my camera and played around with things being out of focus...I got the beauty I was looking for. Hooray!

I don't know...I'm kind of digging the abstractfulness, maybe because it was intentional. I never meant to get something perfect...just see a pile of glitter in a new and exciting way. It took some exploring, but sticking with it got some fun results. And letting go of the controls created beauty in unexpected ways.
