Valentines with photoshop

As I've missed out having anything ready to sell for Chirstmas (oh well at least I have a date for our shipment to arrive from the UK finally) I'm going to aim to have something ready for Valentines!
This morning I've altered a photograph of the Eiffel tower in photoshop. I used so many layers and different effects I can't actually remember what I did with it. But it will make a nice print, and maybe the background for some jewelry or valentines cards.

Jeannie Mills Pewrl meets Monet

There was something about the work of aboriginal artist Jeannie Mills Pewrl that reminded me of a Monet when I first saw it. So carrying on from my experiments last month I've combined the two and put a painting of Monet in the background.

We took some photos last weekend for out friends of their children. Despite falling in the pond before we'd even started - a quick wardrobe change - and we got some nice shots.

I've also been busy this week hunting the net for interesting things.... could these be jellyfish? shells? I like the idea for a painting. Love it when a blog post is colour co-ordinated. :)

Patterned skirts

Love these printed skirts from clothkits. You can buy them ready made or buy a kit to make them yourself.

Im busy getting photos ready to sell on the creative monsoon website, going through the last 4years worth of photos. I came across a nice shot taken in Italy last year but I thought the bike was a little too modern, so I swapped it for an old moped from another image.

Cross-processed photo featured

I forgot to mention we were featured in the Autumn issue of the Uks Digital Camera magazine with this cross processed photo taken in Italy earlier this year.
Prints will be for sale one I get the gallery up and running! Soon I hope.

Rehabilitated dishware

Rehabilitated Dishware uses unwanted ceramics collected from second hand stores and redesigns and resurfaces them. The dishes are reglazed and refired. Very cool. Prices range from US$34 to $59.

Jacaranda tree

You've got to love a place that has purple trees! We're starting to settle into our new home in Sydney and I've started to get back into some artwork. These are a few tests for a series of work I'd like to do on Jacaranda trees. They are flowering at the moment and Sydney is covered in purple patches.
