Melon ( Sheryl )


Well, yes this has been a very hard color!  I can't believe there is so little of it around me.  I do hate to be the third one to do jewelry but I couldn't find anything else.  I have waited as long as I can to post.
 I have been on a stretchy bracelet kick since I saw that movie "Larry Crowne" -- the character played by Julia Roberts wore cute stretchy bracelets and I have been buying them ever since.  I have created quite a collection but these were my first.  3 Turkish Lira a piece, what a deal!
 As I was trying to find something to shoot, I colored and folded and went through all my stuff.  I found this box that came with Rose Candy (I love packaging) so I used it thinking maybe the pink on the front would read Melon -- it didn't. 
 The chip is really pretty exact to the colored piece that I did.  At least on my monitor.
Kendall inspired me to just do some playing.  I really can't remember when I just sat and played in Photoshop.  I used some actions from Pioneer Woman and a Texture from Jerry Jenkins of Shadowhouse Creations.  It's good to be back in Istanbul -- visits home are few and far between -- See you soon . . .

Thanks for stopping by -- Sheryl


  1. wonderful vignettes! I have only one stretchy bracelet, given to me by my granddaughter Charley. Now I want more!

  2. I now have them from cheap to expensive! It's really been fun to see how many I can wear before my husband says "too many!" hahaha!

  3. enjoying being able to view and POST!! whoohoo!!! The 3rd is my favorite...I so enjoy the many variations that each color has when photographed.

  4. Beautiful photos. I love the staging in the third photo. Thank you for sharing!

  5. Thanks Emily for saying so . . . I find this project a lot of fun!
