They look so cool purple. They have a spacey-metallic quality to them!

MC, what are those, how are they natural? I thought they were fused glass. scratch They are pretty, though.

They do have a space-agey look to them in the purple. Blue would be cool too.

I found what I think is the coolest page...

Dave's Paper Snowflake Patterns

You can see the cutout patterns here, by clicking on the links. There are HUNDREDS of them.




He provides instructions and patterns for a fee, but I just like the cutouts. I made a set of wine glasses with snowflakes painted on them and then frosted them with iridescent paint--they came out neat. I'll see if I can get a photo of them when my husband brings the digital camera. Smile

Haven't you ever made paper snowflakes? It's easy to do an lots of fun. I used to teach children how to make them. The ones this guy makes are fairly sophisticated of course.

The ones I posted are photographs of real snowflakes; that is what I was searching for. The real things are awsome and it has always fascinated me all the patterns they can come in.

Oh, yes, of course. Mine always came out lopsided, though. Neutral I guess it's just the way all those different snowflakes look together (like "the tie effect") that makes me oooh and ahhh. (Why yes, I AM a dork. mrgreen)

So, you're saying that those are the actual patterns, formed by frozen water? How are they "captured" like that? Are they microscopic and then magnified?

I don't think they are microscopic, just quite small. I guess it has to be cold enough for them not to melt in order to get a photo of one with a special lense. They are the actual patterns. Nature cannot be outdone.

Are minerals and air coloured because of the light, and the spectrum of different lengths of waves?





This is quartz...Quartz, frosted purple Fluorite, or transparent quartz Amethyst?
I love the colour purple too!

Hmmmm....I'm beginning to feel like your muse..... whee!

I post a couple of graphics and I get pages of jpegs in return without having to do any more work! lol! Cool

I actually have amethyst and various quartzes still. Until I was in college I once collected rocks. Cool ice scultpures (pun intended) and nice photos of firebows.

As for the glittery snow scene; well that does fit the theme of the month now! What a Face

My muse... that could be. lol whee!
I collected once rocks too! And i wear always few little stones around my neck, moonstone, amethyst, transparent lilac fluorite and maybe a yellow one...canīt see it now.
I did often wear moonstone, as i like the stone a lot, but sometimes it made me feel too sensitive and affected from my moods. And Ruby. And same with lapizlazuli on my throat (improves communication).
So thatīs why i permanent wear now few different little stones, its more balanced.
Oh and i often wear turquoise, as i like the color too, and its a good stone for protection if i may feel insecure.

So today... 17. December

My gift for everyone are... Red Shoes.
For inspiration.




Yes, here is a link to click on... >>>> The Red Shoes


Now put them on...

and dance.


Saw that movie once and just loved it...
as well the music and the dancing.


Giggle.... I hope that THIS doesnīt happen with one of you of course. big grin
As the dancing shoes never stop. tongue
