Wearable Wednesday: Khoncepts Caribbean Blue fashions for him and her

Khoncepts Caribbean Blue for him and her

I love taking inspiration for colors by looking at my travel photos and picking a specific hue to create a variety of home decor and fashion wear as shown in this image.

Choosing your colors from a photo or fabric can be closely matched to your wedding, honeymoon or any other special event. I created “Caribbean Blue” by using the inlet photo I took during my second visit to St. Thomas.

I received the title of “family photographer” when I was 15 years old. Back in those days, lol, cameras used 35mm film that involved buying the film and paying to have it processed. Unlike the current digital technology, I couldn’t afford to experiment and take just any old photo so I learned about angles, lighting and composition.

I’m happy to say, my style of photography is enjoyed worldwide on a variety of gift items featuring the ones I’m sharing below found in two of my online shops.

Thanking them and everyone who visits. 🙂

Wall Art: Khoncepts Blue and Green Paint Balls 9762

I’m enjoying the thought of downsizing to a new home where I can design and showcase my art with a lovely view of the mountains to the West and the ocean to the North.  My colorfully picturesque visit to Switzerland springs to mind for the summer months. 🙂

Khoncepts Framed “Blue and Green Paint Balls” wall art captures the many shades of blue representing the sky and ocean, complemented with meadows of green.

Fashion Friday: Neon purple, blue, green and black graphic art fashion wear

My version of an ideal world would have been to make a full recovery from cancer surgery and be able to focus on being a happy creative. My current world however, is learning to deal with post thyroid cancer surgery pain management. The pro-side is re-discovering how to use hundreds of existing designs on new products until I’m able to get back on track. This is actually a better use of my time, as now, I’m much more in line with being better with coordinating outfits and products.

I love using Polyvore because it helps me pull together items that would complement existing items. For example, this eye catching black, purple, green and blue pattern print can now be mixed and matched on a variety of fashion wear, and fashion accessories!

Re-visiting old designs has been very helpful as I know have to check to see if my older prints are even still online. Some shops tend to discontinue items and/or will redo their entire website eliminating a ton of products. I won’t mention the stores that did that this year but it’s been so much fun adding them back – Not! LOL

Sunday Sales Summary Smiles: Fall Foliage and Travel Photography

I recently, devoted many many hours and quite a few days removing non-selling items from my Zazzle Stores.

Apparently the effort paid off. By removing a lot of old items (over 400)  and items not suited for my clients (42 categories removed), my photography products vs my graphic art items stood out better.

Here are a few of the favorites for last week (January 15 to January 21, 2017) for my new Sunday Summary Smiles.

“Rocks on a Maryland Beach” – wall art

Khoncepts "Rocks on a Maryland Beach" wall art

My family is almost used to photographic style by now. In the beginning they could never understand why I was taking photos of stones, walls, bricks, beach sand and rocks. Now they get me lol.

Polyvore also gets me and others like me. I’m able to “clip to polyvore”, one of my art pieces to a new set collage and then spend a few hours choosing images to totally re-create the ambiance of the room.

Everything shown in the collage was added, including the color of the wall. Polyvore collages, once published, shows each item and where it can be purchased. Finished collage sets can also be shared to various social media including WordPress. I also email myself a copy for my files, open the email, download it to my iPad and then post it to Instagram.

It sounds time consuming, however, I’m five months into painful, post surgery recovery and find the entire process, soothing, creatively entertaining and a great marketing tool, in a non salesy manner.

  1. Create the art
  2. Clip the art to Polyvore (using Mozilla for the clipper tool)
  3. Drag the item from My Items (Polyvore)
  4. Decide on color scheme for design
  5. “Save Draft” often
  6. Once I love the collage, I Publish it
  7. Enter title and description of the collage
  8. Share it on social media using the icons provided
  9. I usually choose Blog, uncheck all the items not created by me and then copy the text and post in a WordPress blog draft.
  10. Once I choose a date to schedule the post, I add the information to my Google Calendar which gives me a 30 day view of my scheduled blog posts. This is especially helpful to be sure I’m only featuring one graphic art print each week and not jumping to a new print in the same week.

Below is the original photo of “Rocks on a Maryland Beach” before it was transformed into the living and dining room collage. Do you have a favorite photo memory that you’d like to see transformed into graphic art for your home? If yes, contact me using the form below.
