Well..... I am in total shock for the past few hours, to see that my image called "TiMBeR", got me my FIRST ribbon, a RED. I cried for the first half an hour, with tears of JOY.....

Thank you everyone for your support, as this means more to me than you can imagine..... Thanks especially to my loyal DPC friends. I also have to thank Peter my husband for putting up with me and my photography..... This is for him, and all those who have helped me along the way. You know who you are.

THANK YOU.....

FOR SALE: 40 very very short colored pencils, (about one and half inches long, or 3 to 4 centimeters), due to the sharpened pencil wood shavings above, used in the background.....

I so enjoyed this challenge, and had such a lot of fun putting it together. I have this huge pencil that looks like the trunk of a real tree, but is is a real pencil. It has been sitting in my odds and ends container on my computer desk until now.

When this challenge came up, it took me awhile to think of this idea. The pencil definately was the inspiration. I spent the night sharpening many many pencils, with my pencil sharpener. I wanted to collect the wood shavings to use as the background. I also cut up one of my much loved textured placemats for this as well.

Once it was all together, I was just so pleased with the way it looked. I now just had to photograph it. Only one title came to mind, and that was of course "TiMBeR"..... Enjoy.....

Shez.... a pencil maker you are!

Here is something my mom sent me from facebook - author not given from Wonderful Quotes

Hope you agree that it is appropriate to your picture.

Pencil....Parable of Pencil

The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him into the box.

"There are 5 things you need to know," he told the pencil, "Before I send you out into the world. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be."

"One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in Someone's hand."

"Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you'll need it to become a better pencil."

"Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make."

"Four: The most important part of you will always be what's inside."

"And Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write."

The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in its heart.

06/09/2012 12:53:20 PM
THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST INTERESTING AND CREATIVE IMAGES HERE ON DPC. I LIKE THAT IT WAS CREATED BY COMING UP WITH AN IDEA, PUTTING THE PIECES IN PLACE, THEN PHOTOGRAPHING IT. IT'S AN ACTUAL SCENE, NOT A COMPUTER CREATION.

THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT LITTLE DETAILS IN THIS, WITH ALL THE COLORED PENCIL TRIMMINGS AND THE TEXTURES IN THE WOOD THAT I COULD STUDY IT FOR A WHILE AND NOT GET TIRED OF SEEING IT.

THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR OUTSTANDING TALENT FOR FINDING SOMETHING GREAT TO SEE IN THE EVERYDAY THINGS AROUND YOU.

How very clever of you to use colored pencils for the shavings. The little touches of color among the shades of brown really make this a cheerful picture -- true to your own special style.

Well, how can you go wrong with such a fun pencil. I hope everyone is appreciating this as much as I am.

I really like this composition, and all the brown colors and textures, and the colors on the pencil shavings.

This is beautifully done and must have taken some real effort to get all those shavings! Great patterns and design.

Very good. Colours seem a touch on the faded side I must say (maybe saturation could go up a bit? I don't think the lighting helps) and this is probably just a touch over-sharpened. Otherwise excellent.

very creative and well done. Lacks deep black for added contrast.

Good use of pencil, very creative. I feel like the lighting seems a bit flat and the image doesn't have enough contrast? Good luck
