The Scanner is my Friend plus Etsy

Hooray! My first complete inkjet sample for my seed packet project. I'm not sure about the background color. Too dark? Good contrast? I also liked the colors without a background in my previous post. Hmmmmm. I want to do a few editions in different color schemes, so maybe I'll just do them all! I'm really happy with my pattern. The printer printed it too dull, though. I need to work on my color profiling. I know what my next test will be, so that helps. What do you think?

I gathered some maple leaves today, all from the same tree. I love that it's a gradual process to change color, and you can see the whole process laid out before you. I wish real life was like that. You could see where you were and where you were going all at once!

And, some Etsy things I've faved lately! Have a look and enjoy.
Clockwise from top left: awesome softy sheep from Mogwaii; beautiful Pderadactyl necklace from Neawear; Upcycled Mini Book from EveryJotAndTitle; Embroidered Earrings from NectarJewelry; creepy "Hand"soap from Foliage.

Enjoy and have a great Sunday night/Monday morning!

i really like the brown background.

and, im trying to think of what to use that book you got me for...i think an inspiration book. words, pictures, found bits of things (collecting abandoned grocery lists can be fun!)

thank you so much for the presents.

I thought of it as a place for you to record Grace's growth and such, but who says that wouldn't go in it, too?

Your seed packet project looks good, in colour and everything.

Thanks Elisabeth!

I like the darker background on your seed packet too. Nice job!

That maple leaf photo is terrific.

Like your Etsy finds. Those hand soaps have always freaked me out a little though. :D

Look like I'll be keeping the rust background!

The maples are actually a scan. I don't have a camera right now! Haha.

I'm going to give one of my friends one of the hand soaps! She'll love it. She's kind of a creep. I'll make sure I don't send you one, though :)
