Now, I already know what you're going to say about Dainty. The background sucks, as has been lamented about the parosol lady posted Monday. OK, I'm going to work on that BUT that also leads me to a question: if you have a choice between an image with a nice background and a cutout, do you prefer the cutout? And what is your idea of the best background? Plain and simple, like a blank canvas?
I finally figured out (tell me if I'm wrong) that it was the background that turns folks off on my little sweetie here. I call her "Clear Eyes."! And the color combo isn't the best.....
So I got to playing with a monochromatic sepia version and I think it's much, much better. Still, I wanna change that background -- but change it to what? I keep envisioning a couple of camels! I'm don't want to be guilty of stereotyping people, but the long flowing headdress does make me think of this little girl as being from the Middle East. Perhaps that is really why this scan has not been so popular. When was the last time you designed a greeting card with a Middle East theme? SO....any suggestions on how to make this darling really shine would be most appreciated!
I'm still aiming to post the entries in the March "Love Me Two!" challenge before the week is out. However, as usual, I'm behind:) And I'm having issues with my arm. In other words, I need to walk away from the computer and Photoshop -- but it's SO hard to do!:)
Spring came in the most unusual form in our neck of the woods here on the Columbia River in Oregon. It came all broken up. In little pieces. White, wet, fluffy pieces .... After my chiropractor tortured me, I sat in the condo community hot tub, practicing my arm stretches. Steam rose from the 102 degree water as I watched snow flurries fall and a gazillion robins darted from tree to tree. The robins say it's spring. The snow says it ain't so. Who's a woman to believe?!
