Stuck indoors during my 2 weeks summer leave. BORED SENSELESS. Can't go out as my daughter is unwell. While she was asleep on the sofa, I cheered myself up doing some still lifes. I know it's an old idea, but I had the pensils so I arranged the shot.
Levels adjusted. USM applied

I've tried this and it's tricky to get all the ends together and next to one another! Can I ask....what's the secret, cellotape or books on top to hold them down?
Love the texture of the wood and colours, makes a pleasing abstract image.
PS hope your daughter is feeling better?
