Stone ACEO & Bracelet

I've added the final pieces from my fall/winter collection to my etsy shop. Considering the weather here has been cold and grey lately, it seems appropriate that I end with a grey ACEO and grey square bracelet.

For these pieces, I combined stone patterned paper with grey paper to create a contrast. I think the bracelet came out really nice. It's one of my favorite new pieces.

Color Changes Everything: Part II

In a recent post, I commented how color changes everything. By that I meant, how the background color transforms an object when photographing it.


Well for some time, I've been trying to find just the right background and lighting for my cherry stretch bracelet. Considering the sun here has almost been nonexistent in the past month, that has been the most challenging part. Finally, the sun came out recently, and I tried the image with a grey background. It's not perfect, but I think it's an improvement from before.


What do you think? Which do you like better?

Winter Wonderland

I've just rediscovered polyvore and had so much fun making this digital collage. Unlike traditional collage, I didn't have to drag out all of my supplies, search for images and end up coated in glue.

I am intrigued by this format of collage creation and look forward to making more in the new year. I think I will add this exploration to my list of creative goals for the new year.
