I have thought about photographically following one of my creations from beginning to end but I’d forget, think “next time!” And then I’d forget again. But here we are! I actually thought I’d have to scrap this project several times. A cell phone landed on it, I messed up a few lines, etc., but I was able to adjust and compensate. And it turned out beautifully.
I have a hard time knowing when to stop when I’m in doodling mode. I ended up adding gold elements in addition to the silver. I also was quite pleased with my calligraphy (from Genesis 1); I used my Nikko G nib and Speedball holder and I thought the effect was very smooth.
One of the photos I took for my etsy shop.
And in the frame. I like all my pieces but I really like this one because it reminds me to persevere, it might not be as messed up as it seems. You can’t tell at all that adjustments had to be made.
Check out my etsy shop if you haven’t already. I’m going to start redoing some of the photos as I think my shop looks too white. I bought purple and green sheets to use as a background and I’m pleased with the results (photography is not my strongest skill).
