Hip to be Square: Creating & Using Mosaic Backgrounds

Filed under Good News & Bad News: The good news is that Shutterstock, one of the largest stock photography companies, has accepted my work to sell on their site! Yes, I’m already selling some of my images on my own site (in the Digital Graphic Files collection), so why sell on Shutterstock too? Well, primarily because they do the work of formatting my images in a range of sizes, making it easy to find just what you need, and also because they reach a huge world-wide marketplace. Good news, indeed.

New: Colormusing sets up shop on Etsy!

I’ve just opened my second Etsy shop, Colormusing (natch), just to have a fantastic place to sell my photographic work! Right at this moment, there are 12 of my original photos and photographic montages, already printed and gallery-wrapped for your gift-giving convenience— with sale prices and free shipping if you order by December 12! Here’s one of my canvas images:

Floral Montage

Floral Montage, created by blending over 2 dozen flower and foliage photos! Printed on gallery-wrapped canvas on a 24″ x 20″ frame. (Click the photo to go directly to this canvas in my new Etsy shop.)

And just because I know there are a lot of you out there who like to do your own graphic work (and bravo, by the way!), I’ll soon be offering collections of high-resolution photos, textures, and backgrounds, which you can incorporate into your own masterpieces, from greeting cards to family newsletters, scrapbooking projects to, I don’t know, maybe you blog headers and backgrounds? I’ll be sure to post again here as those become available. And please tell me about anything in particular that you’re looking for, okay?

Photo/Graphic Design Becomes a Musing!

Flash! (Pun intended). Photo/Graphic Design’s original blog (started on some other blog site a while ago) is now moving over to WordPress, where it’s joining forces with colormusing, right here on the a Musing blog! (P/GD is the name of the photography and graphic design side of my work; colormusing covers color palette creation, which is closely connected to my photography, as well as to my line of yarns and patterns.
