OK, it’s not exactly a pearl earring, although you’ll probably never guess what I actually used instead. Looks lovely though.
The photograph of model ‘Avalon’ was taken by Australian based Hazel Blake Photography, you’ll find her on Facebook here. Obviously, it’s a beautifully creative photo shoot image, so why mess with it?
When creating and designing fine art textures for my Etsy shop, they need to go through my quality control process, to make sure they work well in a range of photo artistry projects. For that process, I start with great photographs, like this one of Avalon.
Once I’ve chosen a handful of images, I test each texture thoroughly. Some of them make it through to one of my collections, although the textures used for this Avalon image won’t be available in the shop until next week.
Avalon in Print
A social media post of the textured image of Avalon caught someones eye and this print is now on its way to them as I type.
Here’s a quick snap photo preview: A4 print semi-gloss UV inks on paper: laid out on kitchen table (where else), with mugs holding the corners down (what else).
This looks even more gorgeous ‘in person’.
Oh! The earring!
It’s a photograph I took of the ornamental part of a candle holder I use at home. Amazing what little tricks you can get up to with photoshop artistry and compositing.
As simple as it is, Hazel and Avalon both love this piece.
Someone loves it enough to want to frame and hang it on their wall at home.
I love it because it’s simply gorgeous.
