To have and to hold by shannejw

To have and to hold

I'm being nicer to the paperclip people than the poor mannequin. Tuesday is orange for the Rainbow Challenge and I'm playing with paperclips because the Dogwood 52 week challenge is focused on trash this week - with a sweet wrapper veil and scrap paper book.

Three good things
1. Sorted out one of my daughter's tops, the ones she doesn't wear, fixed the short sleeves on one today and have a plan for another
2. Cobblers will mend my daughter's boots at reasonable cost
3. Scored a lot of reduced fruit and veg in Tesco's this evening

Thank you for looking and the amazing response to the paperclip engagement yesterday. You're all superstars. I prefer to spend time looking at your photos rather than thanking you individually below.
love this

Very clever. I like the orange veil. How do you get the one to stand up?

@shutterbug49 Blutack and Pritt stick followed by a certain amount of cleaning it off in processing

@shannejw Thanks. I think this is a great idea. I’m looking forward to the unfolding story.

Brilliant :) Will we be hearing the pitter-patter of tiny paperclips?

I love the idea and the really evocative shapes you've achieved with the paperclips. If I'm being brutally honest I'm less fond of the dark orange veil. Think I would have preferred a clear one. But then maybe I'm just hopelessly traditional when it comes to weddings.

so creative

I love the veil! That is so clever. And you're also doing a great job of incorporating the weekly rainbow into the story.

@gardencat to be honest, if I'd had orange paperclips, I'd have found some of my patterned white on clear cellophane scraps to make the veil, but I was trying to make an orange image - and I've been using this month to push me into different techniques and ideas.

Amazing how you've told a sweet story with just three paper clips. Super use of "trash" for props. Very creative photo.

Clever & creative! Love it!

Shanne - you are going to grow enormously as a creative this week.

Btw - impressive editing on the standing clip... you worked some major magic here!

@gardencat we all have to work with what we have. I do think the image is really great overall, and wonder if there will be more in the series.
March 20th, 2019
