For some time now I have been procrastinating about making greeting cards from the mixed media pieces I have been creating. Many people have asked me if I could – and I have hummed and harred. From past experience the photgraphing – and then the printing (which has it’s own big bag of challenges), was a huge hurdle for me. I am very patient creating my trees and skies- but photography, well that’s a different story. I have no patience with it and I just want to point and shoot. A bit like computers, I just want to turn it on and get going.
I fiddled around with scanning the work. Then photographing it in various light situations and using different settings in my camera. Then recently, I started using the camera in my phone. The trouble seemed to be that all the layers of my scribbles didn’t translate very well to pixels etc. But guess what – the phone won out. Who would have guessed!
So with images sorted, printing settings experimented with, I am ready to release my greeting card range. There will images added to the range every month. Pop over to the shop page for more details.
