Wildflower sketches in a door frame

Wildflower sketches in a door frame

People often ask me if I like my job. I tell them no. I love my job! One day a gentleman came into the shop with a stack of wildflower sketches his Mother had drawn over the years.

His project was to reuse, recycle, or upcycle, an old window using the panes as frames and present his Mother with a one of a kind gift.

There were various sizes on various types of paper, done with various types of pencil and graphite. Could we make all the images the same size and print on watercolor paper? No problem.

Step 1: High resolution artist scan using our Scitex Eversmart Pro Scanner to create digital files.

Step 2: Balance all the images for the same color backgrounds. White is not white, the tones varied on different sketch books.

Step 3: Resize the images horizontally to fit within a matte. The vertical size was not as critical as the image could be floated in the canvas space.

Step 4: Use the Epson 9900 Giclee printer with Velvet Cotton Rag paper to recreate the sketch book medium

Step 5: Create a happy customer, which you could see up above the results.

A few weeks later I opened my email to find this photo, as much as I love the beginning of the job, the reward is when a customer sends a photo of the finished product.

Author: 3 Quarters Images

Passionate about many things including photography, design, family, cooking, friends, and social media. Depending on the day, the order might change, or I might combine one or two. I am the Mother of two Marines, and as my husband says I can get very passionate about a subject. He likes to say "Who stuck a quarter in you and wound you up?" Most people can only take three quarters of my passion in one day. Hence my slogan "3 Quarters Today"
