Italian Greyhound Art

"Ava & Archer" ( See all proofs)

Working hard today to get organized and see who all needs proofing this week. We are going to the mountains next week. Lola will be here holding down the fort and of course the Scotties will have their favorite person on the planet house sitting so they won't be alone at night. I feel like I have a zillion things to do to get ready for the trip.

About Ava & Archer:
These two adorable Italian greyhounds were a lot of fun to play with. Check out their fancy plush bedding. Do you think they let the humans sit on the couch too? Photo challenges included a lack of crisp detail and lack of contrast. Positive things about the photo include lovely eyes, and a charming pose by both pups.We all know how hard it is to get everyone looking good in one shot. I really had fun with this project and enjoyed picking up on the pattern in the ornate pillow, with a few different wallpaper background choices. I love mixing patterns and find that if the colors are similar in richness you can get away with some fun combos.
