My Bokeh Needs More Practice!

I’m slowly working my way through my L-O-N-G list of Pinterest ‘must try’ pins.  This is one of those – I wanted to try the Bokeh technique.

In photography, bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. Bokeh has been defined as “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light” (trusty Wikipedia).

In stamping, bokeh is a patterned or watercolour type background with white highlights as the focus – attempting to reproduce the dappled light effect of the photographic bokeh.

Now, I’m pretty sure I haven’t nailed it first time around (though I love the final product) and am looking forward to trying again. It was a fun technique with a beautiful finish.

This will be my last post for a short while, while I have a break from stamping, blogging & the computer!  I will return re-energised, with more projects in a couple of weeks.  Kelly x
