I have been hired to do fantasy face painting at our Hospital Gala ( an annual formal event). They are so thrilled that I will be there that they offered me a 3/4 page ad in their magazine. They told me to just send my card but I wanted to advertise all my services. What do you think of this? Any suggestions. This ad is a huge deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yes I caught the misspelling

Wow, your body painting is AMAZING! Love it! I like the layout of the card, but the two portraits seem really out of place. I wonder if just mentioning you do portrait photography, with the website, would be enough to get people to check it out, and then remove the pics?

i have to agree, the portraits look out of place next to all the dazzling color and designs of the painted shots

I understand what you are saying but I have tried that on my cards and other things. I have had repeat clients and I mention photography and they go" you do photography too?' I am thinking yeah it is all over our cards, web site and facebook.
Any other ideas to how to get it out there?

What about keeping the top portion dedicated to your painting, and the bottom to all portraits? I think that the two just look out of place amongst all the colour, but if the whole bottom row was your portraits, it might be more balanced.

love it, but i agree there are too many images.

I would stick to 3-4 on top with a border around them to break them up,
and then the same on the bottom.

but wow, how exciting

Thank you for your input. I switch the little girl pics on top, The blue one I love the picture but the pink show more diversity.

I like the last one the best! The only thing that's slightly distracting for me is that the baby boys photo is so much larger than the rest. I know you did that purposly but it just seems out of place with the other sized photos and draws my attention to it more than anything else.

They are all beautiful btw
