I started the design of this special piece here. Today I finished another step in the design as you can see:
Or I should say Perky finished another step! Yep, this is my dear sweet Perky’s paw. Not to worry, no puppies were harmed in the making of this print! I had originally used a scanner to scan her paw, but with her black toes and black hair I couldn’t get a clear print. Not her fault – after all, she is a Black Lab! So I bought a non-toxic, water-based, easily washable ink pad and took her print the old fashioned way. She was very patient and humored me, both with the scanner and the “fingerprinting.”
The largest print is her full-size print; I made reductions of this for the other sizes. I will have to look at the proportions of all the components before I decide which size print I will be using.
Doesn’t Perky have the cutest little paw? I’m glad I’ll have this print to remember her by, after she goes in for her Guide Dog training. I may do this for all the pups I raise, from now on.
I don’t think you’ll be able to guess what charity this special piece is for. There will be another clue in the next design post.
