Glam Flower

Did I just rock a bedazzled backdrop? Because… it seems like… that… just… happened.

  1. The clarity of the yellow flower against the
    magical backdrop adds a bewitching feel to this one 🙂
    I don’t know where you get your ideas from, but keep
    it up as these offerings are absolutely stunning 🙂

    You never fail to please SIG 🙂


  2. The last thing I bedazzled was my jeans jacket in junior high. I have a feeling that it’s coming back in style though. At least I keep hoping. 🙂
    Maybe you’re on the leading edge of a return trend.

    • Hahaha… It’s a very good thing that background (a bag of my wife’s that’s covered in sequins) had already been bedazzled for me.
      Something tells me that, if I had to operate some kind of bedazzling device, there would be an incident.
      I don’t know how many ‘bedazzling injuries’ typically show-up in urgent care…
      That would have been me.

    • Why, thank you, Amy! Very much!
      The background is a bag of my wife’s – the front of it is covered in sequins – and I’d been wanting to see what would happened if I used it for a backdrop for quite some time now. 🙂

    • Aw, thanks, U.M! The lighting was a bit tricky… I used a lamp to illuminate the flower… and then ‘painted’ more light onto the backdrop (which is one of my wife’s sparkly bags, so I can’t take any credit for running a bedazzler, here, I guess) to get various sequins to glow (while trying to avoid bouncing too much off strange parts of the flower (or the lens)!
