I took this photo in 2009 of my husband, Jason when he was all dressed up for Halloween! I accentuated some shadow, tweaked the color and contrast, and removed the background. He looks rather dapper! Don’t you think?

This is the flier I designed for the entry level crochet class I’ll be teaching in May! It’s also a good example of my typesetting, photography and general graphic design skills. All artwork, photos, and the crochet items pictured are of my design except the butterfly which is purchased stock from Dover Pictura, 150 Silhouette Designs.

If you live in Southern Maine and are interested in learning to crochet please feel free to drop me a line!
