LIM "White on White"and Cubby Hole... "Homage to White Space"

As well as my entry for the LIM Challenge this is one of my inspiration pieces for the May challenge at the Cubby Hole. I know, I know it's not exactly less but it is white :)
I used three shades of white , five if you count the two shades of pearl embellishments.
It is an 8x8 hard canvass panel. 
Hope this still qualifies for LIM :)
I had some difficulty with the photos...
you are quite right Chris photographing all that white isn't easy
hence three different shots.

The one above was taken outside this morning.

This  was taken by Joe indoors with an artificial side light, using his lovely little Cannon Ixus..
This shows lots of interesting shadows.
( I covet this camera:)

This was taken by me with my Cannon Power Shot A650 ( as are all my photos ) indoors without artificial side lighting
 It has been difficult to show up the white, every photo looked blue and hitting automatic levels made it worse! but  I'm sure you'll get the drift :)

Added Mon 9th
One of the Limettes sugested I round out the bird,
so here he is bit more rounded and with his eye in a better position...
I never did like the other eye! :)

This is breathtaking! Love your story about your GD too!

Chrissie said...

The photography is difficult, but so much better than scanning.
This is lovely with a great feeling of movement within the foliage!
Thanks so much!

Aquarius said...

This is gorgeous and I have to say it - Joe's side-lit photo is the way to go! I reckon it is a bit difficult to be really minimal and keep everything white as well - I'm still thinking about mine but I reckon it is a trawl through the embossing folders!!

Lorraine A said...

Gorgeous card Suzi :-)I love the design of this :-)
I hope you don't mind me putting in me tuppenyworth but Debby ( aka A Scrapjourney) gave me a lovely tip about using an embossing tool to round the images from the underneath side of the image and I think this technique would work well with the bird, make him look fatter and more puffed up ,,,, just my thoughts :-)
