Here are my “better” posts so far for #INKtober2014, am enjoying the fun so far :)
The group I’m in has “suggestions”for each day which you are free to follow or chose your own path… mostly I have followed them, mostly ;) Sometimes my drawings need hints and help which I’ve either gotten from Pinterest or our own photos and items. So I am gaining knowledge, using skills and techniques I’ve not used for a while/never tried out before – and am getting more patient with this “craft”- which is bound to be good news for my kids…assuming it translates to my regular life!!! Hahahaha loving the challenge, it’s a great new adventure just before my “normal” work gets busy for Christmas :)
Now to get on and do Day 8!
I keep finding photos I have taken that I know would look great on a phone cover, so I add another to my growing store!!
This is such a great Adventure, I hope you love them as much as I do – find them at http://www.redbubble.com/people/purpletanya
I got brave the other day and tried an experiment, I added a picture into a site to see how it worked and how my photo looked and before I knew it I had added an image for sale. On Redbubble. Whoops, that was too easy, and, so, now I have a total of 4 images up for sale on Redbubble, all are available as iPhone / Galaxy cases, tote bags and throw pillows. A couple of them work nicely as cards / posters and iPad cases. These are the images:
What do you think, let me know, I’d love to hear from you :)
Have had some lovely encouragement from a beautiful artist regarding my drawings, of which I seem only able to draw flowers and not much more! Once I have decided what I would like to do with them, then I will show you, until then here is a couple of my drawings…
might think about necklaces or earrings, or I don’t know what!
and the ground dried enough for me to take some photos of my new cards :) :)
So here they are, the latest collection of cards, quite an assorted bunch, a couple of masculine/unisex as well as some girly ones
So, what do you think…
They all need a sentiment or age added but I want to leave that up to the purchaser, that way they get their ideal card!
Do you like the photos, there has been much discussion about what to set your product on to photograph it on the madeit facebook page, most believe using a white background or removing the background is better but I am not completely convinced, my favourite pics in other stores are those with simple natural backgrounds, what do you think
So I had to make do with my brand new cutting mat as my background (thank you lovely husband and children for the birthday pressie!)
Here are some “emergency pictures” of the bespoke 21st card and some others I have made recently – had to photograph the 21st card as his birthday was on Thursday and we needed to give him the card with his present!
I’m looking forward to the rain stopping so I can get some good ones of the newbies, then into my madeit store they go ;)
Having said that if there is one here you would like and need a sentiment added, please leave me a message and I can get it to you in the post as soon as possible!
Kids are back at school today after a fortnight’s holiday and I am determined to photograph my new cards including a bespoke item for a funny guy!! Just need the finishing touch for it!
Now I just need the weather to play along with me, not too wet and no wind would be perfect thanks Mother Nature!!!
So, tell me, how do you make your pics work for you when the weather won’t play along?
