No Name Blanket. Pattern release update
|February 1, 2013||Filled under Creations, Writing a book|
Looks as releasing patterns on Friday afternoon it’s a kind of new tradition here ;0)
On the other note, I was really shocked that today is Friday already… I’ve spent good amount of time to study and play with studio light, and must admit that I never felt myself such a DORK :0) Yes, I completely understand that photography is a very amazing, serious and kind of magic art and requests great knowledge, skills, practice (not to mention that talent and passion is a MUST!!) And this is why I procrastinated such a long time. But since I always (and pretty often – right now!!) need pictures of my designs (and possibly in one style for a collections or even for a book), I decided to make a try.
And you know what?! I really was so amazed by shades-world and how light “works” at all! Well, I must to say that never paid enough attention to these things. For outdoor pictures, I have a couple spots in our backyard and know that at a certain time and weather I can get not bad pictures, which will show texture and “volume” or crochet and knitted stuff perfectly. But oh my, you don’t want to know how many time was spend to do something similar in studio with strobes… Well, these pictures is what I’ve got so far. I still hate the dark shades on the floor and probably backdrop should be separated better, as well as contrast/white balance is not correct …and a composition is another thing to study.
Well, I’m off to my comfort zone for awhile to make last touches and polish blankets patterns (a second blanket is this sneak peek). I’ll do my best to release EAP version this afternoon, but if you will not hear back from me today – make sure I’m taking picture of second blanket ;o)))
BTW, this blanket has No name so far… Do you think we may have a contest?! ;0)
*** UPDATE I think I’ve got the name idea! :0) What do you think about this one:
Sakura Crocheted Blanket
Give Baby the sweetest of sleep and the best of dreams with this soft as sakura petals and unbelievably luxurious afghan. Delicate crochet shells come together to create billows of heavenly softness, just right for Baby’s delicate skin. It’s a perfect gift for boys and girls alike — just trim it in blue, pink, or any color of your choice, and watch little eyes grow wide in delight before Baby snuggles into the clouds for a nap!
Happy Friday everyone!!
Alla Koval Designs
that is gorgeous Alla!! I love the “lacy-ness” look of it. It almost looks like a present!
Thank you Tina!! YES – a present’s “ribbon wrapping” was a “main” idea of the blanket. I should show it without flower brooch – with bows it looks sweet too. And just imagine this blanket on baby – the best gift ever ;)
Lovely and sweet!
It looks like a big hug of love, and totally cute for a gift!!!
and the Sakura crocheted blanket name is awesome too, ;) xoxoxo Alla
Oh, and I now LOVE “Hug of Love” as name better than Sakura. We definitely need a contest ;) I’ll start one next week!
sounds great for me!!
I absolutely love this blanket
