Cat and Kitten Baby Shower Invitations and More

With as much work as there actually is in trying to get together a high quality Zazzle shop, I don't really have the time I thought I would to try and keep up with this blog. I had in mind that I would be able to post weekly! haha Boy was I wrong.
So here is a quick update of some of the newest designs available this month.

First up is a Mama kitty and her kittens. I used sweet pastel colors with a digital watercolor texture overlay. Little heart and flower doodles are also included into the design. I tried to keep this sweet and simple with a light blue and white stripped background.

The text is adjustable and there are several items to choose from that with the design such as icing rounds, paper plates, thank you stickers, and wrapping paper. Perfect for the cat loving expecting mother to be.



Next, I created a cute little bunny rabbit floating in a hot air balloon. Random floral elements help to round out the design. The tag line is "Let's Fly Away" Great for toddler birthday parties. Sweet hot air balloon decorations, pastel colors, and stuffed rabbit toys would be perfect as an easy way to decorate for the party. Many items are available in the shop. Cards, stickers, wrapping paper, clock, and baby gifts.




Finally, I created another unicorn image for various products. Sweet back to school products and birthday invitations can be found in the shop.




Until the next post. Thanks for stopping by and I will keep on creating. : )

Jungle, Mermaid, and Fairy Party Theme Items

My doodling for the past few weeks has produced a few new items available in the shop.
We now offer magical mermaids, some cute sloth items, and a few jungle theme custom birthday invitations.
Each week, I find something new to strike my fancy. Instead of say what I plan to do, I'm just going to go with the flow. I'm not certain about other artist out there, but when I have an urge to paint something I had better get it out or I will be moving onto the next idea.
As always, I start off with a view doodles. Here are a couple of photos of the before process.



To the finished items below:

Design update for the month of June

This month I decided to focus mostly on holiday themed photo card templates. Everything that is available in my zazzle shop has been hand drawn or hand painted by me. They are then scanned and cleaned up into usable digital files that can be further manipulated for whatever use is needed.

Adding to the designs already available are:

Watercolor Holly Christmas Pattern
Christmas Cactus
Holiday Roses Floral Bunch
Cute Ink Doodle Elephant
and Thanksgiving Themed Sunflower ink Doodle Designs

Slow but surely the shop is growing! I will continue to add the newest designs made this month to this post.

Monthly Store Update

I have been working every weekend on my Zazzle shop. I hope to have several options available by the end of this year.
I still haven't had any sales or commissions from linking to other items. So, zero sales for the month of May.

The new collections and items added to the shop are:

Heaven Sent Birth Announcements and gift items


4th of July Invitations


Christmas Photo Card Templates

Watermelon party Invitations


I will continue on this journey to see if I can be one of the lucky few with adjustable templates. I will post my monthly update for June in a few weeks.

Watermelon Watercolor Pattern

Hey guys, what's up.
Me? I am trying to keep up with working on new designs and products for my zazzle shop.

This week has been devoted to making some fun whimsical watercolor patterns. With a little Photoshop magic, you can take separately painted elements and turn them into some truly unique seamless patterns. I decided to start with watermelons and lemons. I have a list wrote out and will try to keep up the pace this summer and turn out a bunch of fruit related patterns. Feel free to comment or ask for certain patterns I show to be placed on the product of your choice. There are so many items available on zazzle, with my time restrictions I just can't place them on everything on the site unless you request it. But with that said, here are the first items I chose to start with.

Newest Collection Available Elephant Party

Elephants are a popular baby shower and birthday party theme and why not they are very cute. Yesterday during my TV watching time I broke out the watercolors and started painting a couple of cute baby elephants that would work perfectly for invitations and other party related items.

Some of you know my method of creating, but for the others that do not first is drawing and painting. Next I scan the image onto the computer. After that, adjustment and final designs in Photoshop. Now added to this list is uploading and further design on Zazzle. Each image counting all of the above work can take a good 8 hours or more.

This set is truly hot off the press and extremely fresh to my portfolio of over 14 years.



This is just a start. There are so many product options available, if you would want this image on another product just leave a comment below and I can easily have that item added to the shop.


And the beauty of Zazzle is the promotion of other artist and shops, so here are a few of my favorite elephant party themed items below from other designers.
