I just wish I knew the secret to photographing glow-in-the-dark stuff.  Undecided

oh yeah!  duh.  I forgot to post my latest creation.





it's a needle book book; a needle book that looks like an actual hardcover book.  Grin  I modeled it after a book series I enjoy, The House of Night, specifically the first book Marked.  I found the moon and made it blue, then used glow-in-the-dark floss to make the diamond/HON and swirls.  I also made the tiny moon on the spine.  the book is 3 inches tall (somewhere between 2.5 and 2.75 inches wide), but the angle makes it look bigger for some reason.  it's kinda hard to tell, but the last picture is of it glowing.  you can see a slight green to the floss color.  I have no clue how to photograph glow-in-the-dark stuff.

I have been wanting to make a needle book specifically for my embroidery and tapestry needles.  this challenge was the perfect opportunity since I don't need a very big one.  I've made several needle books in the past for others - Twilight: New Moon, Twilight: Breaking Dawn, The Book of Penguins (check page 19 for a closeup of the spine), Labyrinth, and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - so I decided to finally make myself one.  I modeled it after a book series I enjoy, The House of Night, specifically the first book Marked.  I found the moon and made it blue, then used glow-in-the-dark floss to make the diamond/HON and swirls.  I also made the tiny moon on the spine.  whenever the book is small, I need to make a closure for it too.





the book is 3 inches tall (somewhere between 2.5 and 2.75 inches wide), but the angle makes it look bigger for some reason.  it's kinda hard to tell, but the last picture is of it glowing.  you can see a slight green to the floss color.  I have no clue how to photograph glow-in-the-dark stuff.  plus I don't have the greatest camera ever.  lol.

my fingers kill me after I get done with one of these, but they're so worth it.  I love each and every one that I've made and I would love opportunities to make more for others.  but I need money before I can start swapping again.  Sad
