Another amazing and amusing alternative to not being able to go out and take new photos. A beautiful landscape photo of downtown St. George Bermuda taken from the top deck of a cruise ship is transformed into vibrantly colorful “Neon Pop Art” travel gifts.

Khoncepts Boston Swan Boats Art Deco

 

My entire life was forever altered after having 2016 thyroid cancer surgery resulting in painful, internal surgical scar tissue adhesions in my neck. Everyday is a struggle but I’m alive and am still artistically inclined, so while I no longer walk everyday, I do have thousands of photographs on my hard drives to work with.

The Boston Public Garden was one of my favorite places to stroll through each morning and take pictures. I chose a photo of the Boston Swan Boats from my 2009 file folder to update using my iPad Pro, a black background and an art deco filter app.

Pain has shown me how to balance my life while remaining creative in the best way possible. Click the images below to see them in my shop. Enjoy!

Adding a quick follow-up to an earlier “Jaguar in Motion” art post about a great trip to the San Antonio, Texas zoo but some not so great photos. I chose one of my dull jaguar image, jazzing it up on my iPad using a bold art filter creating this fabulously colorful design, placed on a variety of home decor and fashion accessories. Click the images at the end of this post to view them in my Zazzle shop. Enjoy!

Creating art from a drab photo taken at the zoo

My family and friends enjoy my enthusiasm for visiting major aquariums and zoos. That said, I can’t really devote the extra time it takes to stand in one place to take loads of photos until I’m happy lol. Nope, I’ve learned to capture what I can while keeping my host happy and free from boredom.

My cousin and I lucked up on seeing this jaguar at the San Antonio Zoo in Texas. He came out of hiding to show off his beautiful coloring, however my actual photos looked like garbage. Many months later, after cancer surgery and health complications I felt a smallish project was in order and decided to re-visit my photos from the zoo. Using my iPad Pro and the Vinci art app the Jaguar in Motion photo is now a favorite.

Once several eye catching images of the jaguar were completed, sharing them in a fun format was in order. I admit, it took me over two hours and several tries before settling on the final product.

1) I used ProShow because I like their video template selections. I loaded several photos of the jaguar to a template and then saved the video to my iPad Pro (I did this because I couldn’t figure out how to add my own music to the video)

2) The video was next loaded to iMovie. I cut and replaced the ending, added my own music (created in Garageband) and downloaded the video to my iPad Pro.

3) I opened my paid version of PhotoGrid (no watermark) and chose Grid, added my video (30sec), typed in 3 different titles and saved it to my iPad Pro

4) The video was  next uploaded from PhotoGrid to my YouTube channel

5) Next I opened my WordPress account to start a new post

6) WordPress lets’s me easily add media from YouTube choosing videos by user as shown above

7) Blog post is then published to WordPress and my Khoncepts website at the same time

8) Now I can post my video clip to my Instagram account. Interested visitors will then be able to click the link in my Instagram bio to visit my website. for the full story on how I did the video. 🙂

This is a good way for me to remember how I did it as well haha.

Finally…..the jaguar photos will be re-sized to create postcards, greeting cards and home decor items such as shower curtains and throw pillows.

Thank you for understanding my switching from a weekly post to a monthly summary sales thank you post. Medically speaking, a once a month Sunday note is more manageable and it allows for a better perspective of what items in my Celeste Sheffey’s gift items on Zazzle shops are of interest to my USA and International visitors. Visit links below and thanks again if you a pleased customer! 🙂
