Macro Mondays: Pick Two

This week’s theme for the Flickr Macro Mondays group is “Pick Two.” From this week’s instructions (via Moderator Cartale):

Pick Two 

For this week’s Macro Monday theme we will remake a similar theme from 2019. It is called “Pick Two” and the rules are quite simple. Below you see two lists of words, “List A” and a “List B” and placed 4 words in each list. For this week’s theme you will select one word from List A and one word from List B and then take a macro image illustrating the combination of your two chosen words. 

The colours will be:

The items will be:
Bottle Cap

For example, you might decide to choose the word combinations Red Paper, or Yellow Flower as your subject matter for this week’s submission. In that case your subject matter will be a piece of “Red colored paper” or a “flower with a yellow main color”. And please, whichever two words you choose, tell us what they are in your photo’s description–the moderators cannot be expected to guess what you have selected.

Quilling with Pink Paper

My mother is an artist at heart. She’s always been a musician, she’s dabbled with painting, and she’s been exceedingly fond of all paper art forms… gift wrapping, coloring, making postcards. A trip to the office supply store to get new pens used to make her giddy! For Mother’s Day this year, I got her a quilling kit. What is quilling? Quilling, or paper filigree, is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. I knew she would love it. Because of COVID-19, the kit took over two months to arrive but she finally got it this weekend.

When I saw this week’s Macro Mondays theme of “Pick Two,” and one of the choices was paper, I asked her if she would create a design for me to use as my subject. This tiny teardrop is shaped out of a quarter-inch wide pink paper strip that she rolled to create this design. The entire shape is less than an inch big. It reminds me of the Fibonacci spiral. She has already created a gorgeous flower out of about a dozen tightly rolled circles and made crimped leaves for it as well. I can’t wait to see more of her art!
