Every Inchie Monday - SHADOW

This has got to be a first, lol, me posting my Every Monday Inchie on a MONDAY, woohoo! This week's theme is SHADOW. When I photograph all my bits and pieces, tags, etc, I often get a bit frustrated because where I have decent daylight, the sunshine sometimes interferes with my pics, throwing big shadows. So I had to giggle to myself when just this once I wanted those shadows badly. Fortunately it is a lovely sunny day today, so in principle it wasn't too difficult. In principle. HAH! Finding something to throw a decent and recognisable shadow was VERY difficult. I lost count of how many things I tried, lol. In the end, I held up a doily at just the right angle to get this lovely shadow on the table -




Hmm, annoying how the different backgrounds mess with the colour of the inchie, and that is after the printer has already changed it somewhat. This is the original picture I took -


If I get a chance, I'll post some tag pics a bit later, but don't hold your breath, lol, you know what happens to the best laid plans..............

That's really quite lovely - if you printed the photo onto fabric you could stitch it!

That's a creativ idea. I never thought of making a real shadow. But why not? It looks great.

Hi Dear Liz
Well all I have to say is that you are just toooo clever to use the most obvious thing you could think of and how effective.
Been trying to email you but snowed under (as opposed to snowed in!) like we are in Summer as you know.
Keep well and wishing you some happy days!
Love and hugs,
Suzy
