"Lucky" for me there have been boxes in the way, kind of keeping me from using the engraver. Last week when my new shelves came in, and I cleared the boxes, and the new table top for the engraver was put it, it was time to get serious. I've come up with two new filigree designs for next season, and I just had to scan them in, clean them up and make the samples.
The first one is complete, and I'm very happy with it, I think it may be a winner!
|The beginning stages of the designs. The outer borders are existing dies we have in house.|
|The pencil drawing I was happy with on the left, the line drawing I created in adobe based on it.|
|My new area, very happy with it!|
|The finished product, again, very happy with it!|
Oh, and I need to go ahead and make the other style too, guess I should stop blogging and start sample making!
PS- I hope you've enjoyed this sneak peak, which won't be 'unveiled' until January!
