Above is a view of the shores of the Moray Firth from Chanonry Point, near Rosemarkie. The Moray firth is home to Britain’s most northerly pod of Bottlenose dolphins. Hope you’ve enjoyed a brief glimpse of the east coast of the Scottish Highlands…

This image is available in my shop

The three images above are all of an assortment of denims converted to monochrome and overlaid with my Vintage Blue Lace texture! The denims and lace seem to work very well together.

Vintage Denim & Lace

This is an original design I created for my shop using my Vintage Blue Lace texture, some denim and a stripe design which is also my own original design! I really like this design and it works well with the products in my shop!

I wish sometimes there could be an extra 4 hours a day and an extra day in the week – I seem to be always battling against the clock to try and fit in all I want to do! I hope you’re all having a great weekend ~ see you soon!

Original Vintage Designs

Vintage Spot Mosaic

These are my own original designs which I have created in Photoshop using a little imagination and some of my own textures. My designs are available in my shop in a variety of products, prints and cards. There will be more original designs coming – but at the moment they’re still in my head… I’m hoping to do some work on them later!

Where does the time go? The days seem to fly by and I never seem to have enough time to accomplish what I want to! I’ve been very busy lately opening a new shop on REDBUBBLE for selling prints and other goodies of my photography work. It has been very time consuming and I still have lots of work to do there – lots more images to upload. Do click the link and have a browse – one of my favourite items in my shop are the tote bags… I just know I’m going to end up buying a few…

I hope you all having a great week – see you again soon…

I really like how my fabric collages turned out, although they did end up quite different to how I originally imagined they would. They just kind of evolved as I added more and more acrylic paint. I especially like the macro photos of my collages as they really show off the colours, textures and details better.

Gelli Prints

 Leaf Print 1 - DIB

These are some of my early experiments with my new gelli plate. It’s 6″x 6″gelli plate from Gelli Arts. I am totally in love with gelli printing! It’s such a fun way of monoprinting – I love mixing colours on the plate, creating textures, patterns and maybe even some fine art eventually…

The best of my gelli prints are going to be stuck into a dedicated sketchbook I’ve bought especially for them. With gelli printing you are only limited by your imagination…!
