From Lichen to Something AMAZING!

I had no idea when Martina of Chartelaine's Designs said she was inspired by the above photo, that she really meant to do something about it!  Please take a look at the GORGEOUS work she's done...I'm just speechless with admiration.  I would encourage you all to visit Martina's blog--there's a link in my sidebar.  She is such a creative person!  You will love what she does!

I have dreamed of making clothing--dying the colors to match what I see in nature--for years.  Martina has actually done it in real life.  Above you see the fruits of her labor.  I'm just astounded and VERY honored to have shot the photo which inspired her.  WOW!  She is an inspiration to me!

Beth, thank you ! Your recognition of my work and comments of esteem mean a lot to me. If I could, I would work/play/dream of colors the entire day - more or less I even already DO so :-)
kind regards, Martina
