It’s time for Part 2 of this tale. After turning in the dark perfume layout that I did last week, I had a chance to re-do it. We were to either catch-up an assignment that we missed, do something totally different and wonderful or redo an earlier assignment that we wanted to improve. For me, that dark bottle had to be redone. I didn’t even like the perfume itself that I purchased the first time around. I thought I did until I actually squirted it beneath my ears and on my wrists. It made me wheeze and it was very strong smelling when I used it more than one squirt on the wrist in the store. Since I knew I couldn’t wear it, I returned it to the store and exchanged it for this bottle of Givenchy that is lighter and doesn’t make me wheeze. I squirted it all over and walked around the store to make sure it would work for me this time. What luck that I got to switch scents, and in turn, containers.
Just like last time, I was surprised by what the box contained for a lid. I ended up liking both the lid and bottle and this re-done layout a whole lot better than the “green” layout. Sometimes my stomach just doesn’t feel good when I look at a finished image. That’s why I knew I needed to take another shot at the perfume assignment. The light colored bottle helped with creating a Spring look this time. The bottle looked a little bronze sometimes and pink in other lights. By combining both of those colors in my backgrounds and props, I ended up with a layout that is pleasing to the eye, shows off the bottle with carefully placed lights and I ended up with new perfume that I like and apparently likes me back.
See you next week! The assignment is Coca-Cola time! I can’t wait!
