Hello to you, all my lovely, fellow bloggers, friends and followers! Well, Christmas and New Year is well and truly over now, the decorations are put away for another year and I am having a bit of a break from Christmas card making - although I do want to start making some in readiness for this year, I'm determined not to get caught out again this year - I have been busy during my blog break and I have been working on something that should save me some money (nothing too ground breaking) but I haven't finished yet, but when I do I will show you all!
These past few days I have also been experimenting with something else too. I had made up a couple of cards with 'snippets' laying around in my craft room and was photographing them for Pixie's Snippets Playground I had promised Di that I would try not to forget this shamefully forgotten challenge (by me) this year when I use 'snippets'.
Now, back to the experiment. Whist I was putting away the Christmas decorations, I wondered if I should try our small battery operated string of fairy lights as props, so that my pictures had a little extra interest, but I'm not very sure about it . . . maybe you all could help. The first photo will be with the lights (I think they are a little too big as props for card photography, so I might try some smaller ones) The other two photos are as I normally do my photographs. I will explain the 'snippets' at the end of this post, so those of you who want to get on can get on, as I realise I am 'waffling' here!
The snippets used for the first card - which, I admit, may be stretching it a bit as a 'snippet', but it was a panel I had stamped quite a while ago and wasn't sure how I wanted to finish it off, so I won't enter that one!
The snippets used, on the second card are the poppies that I had coloured quite a long time ago and were shoved in a drawer, the patterned paper and the two pieces of cardstock used for the sentiment.
Let me know what you think about the lights as props - smaller ones of course - would you prefer, with or without? As always, thank you for your visit today and have a fabulous day! Hazel xx
