I am working on the kitchen floor in the dollhouse and I found a tile sample on line that I thought would work. So I did some work with it and came up with this template. I printed it out on regular paper first to see if it would look good in the kitchen. I looked great so I then proceeded to print it on gloss paper.
Here are the "four" prints that came out!! The first one on the left is the original on regular paper and that is the one I wanted. The colours are a bit off in the picture but you can get the general idea. The second one was purplely blue and that would look horrible. So I thought maybe I should have set the printer for glossy paper and tried again. This time it came out blue which still would not go in the kitchen. So I played around with the settings of the printer again. (I have no clue what it all means nor do I know what I am doing.) I set it for glossy paper, slightly muted saturation, warmer tone, and AdobeRGB colour space.
This time, I got the fourth from the left which was just what I wanted. Perfect. But I needed two sheets for the floor, so I printed out a second one - keeping the same settings - and this time it turned out "green" HELP! What am I doing?????? I waited awhile and tried once again and it came out a light blue. I need some help here.
I first entered the world of miniatures when my husband gave me a dollhouse for Christmas in 2005. I had never had a dollhouse as a child but I had always been fascinated by miniatures. I found this to be a very satisfying, relaxing hobby.
I am now retired and married for over 50 years to a wonderful man who has always treated me with respect and love. I have three children, four grandchildren,two new step-granchildren, a cat, and a dog. We like the simple things in life; a walk through a quiet forest, the song of birds, and the beauty of nature.
