I spend the last 3 hours trying to take decent pictures and it's more or less a total loss, but I can't help it now anyway. I had to take the pictures today and those are what I've got.
This post is going to be a huge pic spam, I apologize for that *gg*
I finished the letters on Thursday and thought I'd be done with it the next day, the only thing remaining to do was taking pictures.
In the middle of the night I woke up with a realization and an idea (yes, I am borderline crazy LOL). With my cats I can't have any floor decoration and I don't have enough space on any kind of board or sideboard to row the letters up on.
So I went and bought this backboard, it's a lightweight wood and painted it green. I am anything but a talented painter, but I hope I achieved a modicum of a grass look *g*.
Yesterday morning I started punching and assemblinig the flowers, fireflies and butterflies, but since I had planned an all day shopping trip with my parents, I lost most of the day, so I finished the punching and assembling this morning, finally.
Pictures, like I already said, were as always a huge pain in the ass. The only consolation is that I wouldn't have been able to take better ones on Friday or yesterday as well.
I need to get this additional flashlight for my camera, which can be angled so the light of the flash is indirect. But it costs a small fortune, so this has to wait until my birthday in 6 months.
I'll post the recipe for this monster later, I haven't had the time yet and I have a lot of pictures for that post as well of all the colors used.
