Our August issue of Martha Stewart Living is out on the news stands! It's all about easy living ideas. Hopefully you will get some inspiration and will have an easy, relaxing summer full of fun craft projects.
The dipping and dyeing story I worked on for this issue was developed and shot last year during the summer (we often need to shoot a year in advance, if we want to photograph in the same season the story will be published ) . But the cover for the issue only came about recently. Vanessa Holden, our editor in chief, wanted to show some of the projects inside the issue on the cover, but in different colors. So she handed me these pantone chips...
...and asked me to recreate some of the projects in the new color way.
As you can see we dipped many more fabrics than we ended up using. But it was kind of fun to have access to one of our photo studios to do all of this work. Next week I'll show you some more projects from the actual story.
Oh, and one of the projects from the 'Braiding' story I worked on in this issue is hidden on the cover ... can you find it ?!
