April ShowersWednesday, April 1, 2009
I've been doing some photography today for our new April Showers Stocking pattern. Barb has completed the three stockings for this pattern and are they sweet!Here is a quick peek at one of the stockings. I'm always trying to figure out how to photograph our products to give them an inviting look. For this picture I cut a branch from my pear tree, then added a bit of foam to stabilize the branch. Finally I filled this vase with small navy beans to cover the foam and add a bit of texture. The branch doesn't last very long though. The flowers fade by the next day. Maybe a bit of water would help....of course then the navy beans will begin to sprout. I don't think that would be a good look. Maybe an artificial branch would be the best. Some of them look very real....but for this quick photo the real branch worked great.
We are working on a book using this fabric. Release date in May.
These make the sweetest vases. I've given the link to e-bay...but save yourself and don't go there!!!!
