Gocco Swap

Well...I was in a bit of a panic wondering what I would make for the clothpaperstring - Art of the Note Gocco swap (see post below) and after delving through some of my photos I came up with a few ideas... So here are my 'inspiration' photos and what I ended up with.

Some mail boxes I'm always drawn to when we pass them. I knew this pic would
come in useful one day.
You've Got Mail - Card

Work in Progress..

For the second set i found a photo in my deleted folder and after some photoshop tweaking I actually managed to come up with something to print. I was using some dark grey card which I thought would look good with some silver ink...turned out well I think. This doesn't bode well for my hoarding tendencies as I was going to delete this and look at what I did with it. Now I will keep all my 'bad' photos just incase!!

I think this card has a slightly eerie quality which I love...I am not sure if it would be the same in a different colour combination.

Overall I was pretty happy with the results and I managed to put together a nice set of cards to send off. I do hope my fellow swappers like them.

The finished product!

Not quite Lonely Planet Travel guide but......

...rather cool nontheless. I just got news recently that one of my photos has been used on Schmap's online Melbourne city guide. It's in the Fitzroy section which the previous link should take you to...scroll through the photos to see mine.

My pic is of a typical eerie doorway in Fitzroy.
