Victoria Magazine.....

Chris put together a beautiful ad for me for my new advertising campaign this year in Victoria Magazine. This particular ad is featuring my line of hand painted pendants, I took all the test photographs, we picked a favorite and he assembled the ad.

I tested many differnt layouts and ideas before I hit upon the right one that would allow for the placement of all the text as well as look appealing at the same time.

These are of course, some of the rejected layouts, for one reason or another, they just didn't work.

I also tried some photos without greenery and decided I didn't care for them at all. Since my pendants are mostly created by using nature as my inspiration, the stems of my pretty little green plant seemed to work best in representing the necklace portion for this trio.

At last, the photo that seemed to be just right for what I needed......

The finished ad.

Sometimes I dont think people realize what it takes to put an ad together or run an online business... its a lot of work ... seriously...

P.S. Ruth, I am looking for Victoria stories for my new blog, Remembering Victoria. If you have anything at all you'd like to share that's Victoria-related, I'd love to feature it.
