I LOVE having an opportunity to use photos or images in jewelry projects. It was important to me to include a garden gnome project in my jewelry making book, so a photo seemed just the right method.
My family of gnomes were assembled on the deck in the back yard and, hopefully the neighbors weren't paying too much attention, we had a photo shoot!
I have to admit to this turning into a guilty pleasure. Once I had all the gnomes photographed with different backgrounds (yes, really), I discovered my camera had the ability to run them on screen as a slideshow. Here's the best part...the camera added in different types of music. I settled on a classical number and think the humor in this stayed with me for quite some time! :)
I want to share the experience of how this project evolved so on Sunday I can share the final project with instructions, etc.
So, here is the photo it all started with... Tomorrow, the chain and Wednesday, the most important ingredient, the frame! :)
