Once in a while I take a good look around me and feel the need to change things or improve on them. Sometimes it could be nothing more then putting a bit of order into my home, or getting all the dust bunnies gathered from the corners of the rooms. Recently my Etsy shop is the place where my need to change things have been focused. I took a good hard look at my photos' backgrounds and decided I had to find something else that "spoke" to me a bit more. So with much trial and error, I finally found a couple that really please my visual senses.
One is a pale pink that I really like and depending on the natural daylight on any given day, the shade of pink is lighter or darker. I like how it turned out for these garters.
I also like this background, made with a vintage bridal image that I just love. It is perfect for my "Victorian Brides" series of bridal garters, which are made with fine laces and ivory silk satin ribbons, kept rather simple and not over stated, but refined and very elegant, befitting that gentle era.
It is fun to try out new backgrounds, change things around in my shops a bit. Now I am always on the look out for other images to use, and am trying to improve my shop photos in the process.
