Come and join us at this week's Tuesday Alchemy challenge! Share with us all things that remind you of the ocean! Do you live near one?
This is a frame card that I made for a friend for her and her bf's anniversary. I put random things on there that symbolize their relationship together. It includes: 2 lobsters, 2 cherry blossom flowers, a broom and pail...I don't even want to know! :D She'll be able to put a landscape 4"x6" photo in there. The background paper was plain baby blue, but I dabbed white ink over it to make it more dreamy and water-like. Everything else was white cardstock that was painted with acrylic paint.
Today Venus passes across the surface of the sun--it's a once in a lifetime thing for those of us who are alive today. The next time this happens is expected to be 2117! I don't have access to a telescope...wish I did...but I will try to catch it live on NASA TV a little later. I've always been interested in astronomy, so this is exciting to me. I got a chance to see Jupiter and Uranus through a large rooftop telescope at my university during an astronomy course in 2005. I wish I could get in there tonight and use it again because it isn't safe for the retina in the eyes to look up at the sun even with sunglasses! The light is too concentrated, so please be careful if you're thinking about doing this and read up on it before for the health of your eyes!!!
