I picked up the postcards for the show yesterday and I feel like a little kid at Christmas! What a rush to see a picture of one (actually, two) of my quilts with my name and "Artist Reception" right there on the card! Anne at ARTichoke did a beautiful job on getting the card laid out and I love the font she used. She watermarked the smaller quilt on the back so it is a shadow sort of effect of the actual quilt. I'm very happy with the look of it though. When she was working on it, she just started poking keys on the computer and all of a sudden, voila', there it was! I was soooo impressed. It puts my cut and paste skills to shame to see a true master at work with photoshop. Besides forcing me to actually finish the quilts I start, this project has made me get at least a little bit better at getting some pictures of my work. Tripod, high res shots, lighting, that sort of thing. I tend to take crappy pictures since I already know what the pieces look like. Maybe my brain extrapolates the intimate details onto the rudimentary photos so I "see" what I know is there. I need to pay more attention to getting pictures that let other people see it too. Well, for everything but the glitches. No close ups of the unmatched points or crossed stipple lines anyway.
I hope to see everyone there! (Wine will be involved.)
