Black, White and Red Fish Eye Art for your kitchen

Several members of my family and I, we all love the colors: black, white and red. These Black, White and Red Fish Eye patterned kitchen towels also are a great option to use as table placemats. Look how large they are with a full size plate. I ordered eight using Zazzle’s many discount specials.

Send me a note and let me know what colors you’d like to have for your  kitchen towels/placemats.

Home Decor and Fashion Wear Colors inspired by a Bahamian Conch Shell

Dark Brown Beach Sand is a solid color derived from my conch shell. Souvenirs from my first visit to Nassau  in 1990 were several zip lock bags of seashells, beach sand and two large beautifully colored conch shells.

After an exhaustive, still continuing after effects from 2016 thyroid cancer surgery, it’s made more sense to tweak/add to existing art designs. In this instance, I’ve taken the individual colors from the 2012 striped pattern and made them into their own separate categories to complement the stripes. The new gifts now include the striped pattern which a customer can keep as part of the design or remove using the template options!

The  solid hues now match the Conch Seashell stripes gift products written about in a previous article on conch seashell designs

What favorite souvenir do you have that you’d like to create color prints to match? Contact me below and let’s see what we can do for you.

Fashion Friday – Living Coral Swirls 3562 Graphic Art

A broken necklace creates beautiful abstract art
Creating art from a broken necklace and a photograph.

It’s a wonderful feeling each year when Pantone announces their color of the year selections and I know I already have a few designs using that particular color. 2019 was announced as “Living Coral” and yippee I had a few coral patterns and happily added more like this pretty marble swirls abstract.

How to easily customize most of my Zazzle gift products in 3 steps

Designing easily customizable gifts has been my goal for those who visit my online Zazzle shops. The majority of patterns will also include a color matching text box that they can keep and add they own text like the JRJ initials shown below or they can remove the text box and the monogram leaving just the design.

I’ve illustrated how to modify this notecard using three images below.

  • Image 1)
    Here is my Mandala note card design. I choose an orange background, however you can easily change it to another color.

  • Image 2)
    Notice it says Personalize this template. Click Details to see the options you have to change the design.

    • Image 3

    After clicking, it now shows that the text JRJ can be changed or even deleted ( to leave it blank)
    You can also keep the orange circle text box or delete it as well

  • Image 4  

Because the design is a mandala (circle), I wanted to give the option of having a background color to match the design. You can easily change this by selecting another hue or remove the color to leave it as a white background by choosing the no color first box option.

I hope this has been helpful. If you change your mind or need to redo it, refresh your browser to start over.

Thank You Thursday – Mardi Gras Themed Gift Purchases

I had my enlarged and slowly growing right thyroid removed, September 9, 2016. While the cancerous removal was considered “successful”, my life was forever changed with debilitating after effects and internal adhesion scar tissue neck pain. Slowly, ‘fast forward’ to 2019 and I’ve finally gotten a bit of a rhythm with my life, my medical disability and thankfully my art.

Rather than churning out lots of new designs, reworking existing patterns along with colorful presentations have become a new art form in itself and I get to share a fancier way of saying Thank You for visiting my shop and choosing to the make these Purchases!

PS. Mardi Gras is March 5, 2019.

Sunday Sales Summary Smiles for December 2018 – Zazzle Shops

to each person who visits my shops, shares my shop links and the ultimate – enjoys my eclectic view of life through photographic-art. Sharing these monthly summaries of purchases through my Zazzle shops provides me a visual overview of the “flavors of the month”. Travel images continue to be top sellers.

I’m extremely blessed to have been declared “cancer free”, 2 years after surgery.  However the catch-22 is long distance traveling has been severely limited to one annual trip which I gladly accept and look forward to for as long as I’m physically able. 🙂

Looking forward to seeing what 2019 brings all of us!
