Does it Have to "Match?"

Color week really got me looking in all directions, noticing things in more detail, and giving me lots of ideas for photos. Actually, it's spilling over into my wardrobe thanks to Kendalee, who focused on that theme for the week. I love my neutrals still, and when I took this photo of marbles in a fountain I began thinking about sea shells as a lovely subject. And sand. Association is a wonderful thing:). However, it will be a while before those subjects materialize.

I seldom make prints of images such as these, and I don't know why not. Or at least greeting cards. I might play around with a border of some sort, or a cut-out? Does anyone else use images such as these for a specific purpose? I'm thinking it could be a great look, on the right wall, or with the right decor. Actually, does it always have to "go" with something?

I'm not a decorator, but I do know what I like in the way of photographic images. Let me know your ideas on this subject.

Have a wonderful day.

Oh no, never has to match! I love an eclectic mix - so much more personality!

I think it would be great up in a kids room with all those primary colors!

I think the beauty of this image is that it's like an abstract, and doesn't have to "go" with anything, you know? Just the shapes and colors are enough. I would personally enlarge it as much as possible and mat/frame it. It's so pretty just as it is :)

Thank you for your ideas...I like it more each time I look at it. I may be on to something.

Lovely picture! Everything about it appeals to me - the mix of colours, the texture, the shapes, the abundance - yummy! I don't know what I'd do with it either but I like to look at it. Cards are a great idea! Or transferred onto a big canvas...

PS how lovely that the colour's spilling into your wardrobe too ;o) I'd love to see what you've added... I'll never really move away from my neutrals either but I'm amazed how happy a little colour makes me.And it's good to test our boundaries, isn't it? :)

It would make a great print! The texture makes me want to touch it... the colors make me happy - vibrant... alive, like a perfect cup of coffee

I love it. Sure, it would make a neat card... but also it would look good much bigger than that.


Thanks for sharing.

Okay...the votes are in and I'm going to order a print. If nothing else I can put it in the upstairs hallway or the bathroom:). Actually, I see some pieces on a consignment basis and maybe this would appeal to someone. Thank you for the support!
