As November comes to an end I find the low light levels increasingly frustrating.Its annoying not to be able to take any decent photographs.
When uploading photographs of goods for sale to ETSY its particularly important to have good images. The original of this Harris Tweed heart was horribly sizzly and not at all like the real thing.
This is a second attempt today and I think its a bit better although the blue stitching isn't as obvious in reality.(You can click on the pictures for a closer look..twice each.)
The main reason for getting out the camera was to photograph these books which will be going into the shop soon.
They are white cartridge paper, acid free, made by The Pink Pig, and decorated by me with embroidery on silk paper.
This one is 6 by 6 inches square.
The next one is 4 inches by 6 inches
and this is a small 4 inches by 4 inches. Lovely to carry about for little notes or drawings.
There is an unpleasant blue tinge to this photograph but its actually a soft turquoise green cover with aqua and purple embroidery.
The theme of the book covers is earth colours
and I stuck to aqua and turquoise mainly.
But there are some black ones as they proved quite popular previously.
I love these 1950s colour schemes.
I'm not averse to a bit of pink..
and all of them have a little teeny something inside.
Because I'm like that.
I spent an awful long time uploading pictures and listing items in my shop, because I am not doing any more craft fairs before Christmas and made far more than I needed for the last one.
Its such fun to list goods and then go to bed, and when you wake up in the morning perhaps four things have been sold.
The sun never sets on the etsy empire.
