Hi and welcome to you

I guess if you stumble across my blog, you probably have an interest in photography, digital art or smudge painting too.

I have been a digital scrapbooker since 2005 ... wow, where has that time gone?? I am still heavily involved in the digi scrap community but I really believe that what I do is closer to art than scrapbooking - but whatever you want to call it doesn't really matter to me ... as long as I am creating I am happy.

I have been lucky enough to meet some amazing scrap artists and I have made some wonderful cyber friends though this industry. I can't imagine not having this outlet in my life ... besides where else would I get my inspiration?

Recently I discovered smudge painting, or virtual oil painting (as it is often called) and well, I am hooked - here I can merge my love of animal and nature photography with art and still be creative - it certainly works for me anyway.

This blog is just for my photos and art, I hope you enjoy your visit ... perhaps you could show me your work too, I would love to see it.

Just in case you are wondering ... my weapons of choice are Canon and Photoshop.

happy creating

A Golden

If my Vali would let me, I would love to adopt a Golden Retriever  BUT unfortunately my sweet girl is a one dog family and I love her too much to spoil what we have ... I am just so glad that she can't follow my work because if she saw this I would be in so much trouble - lol ... tfl, Lisa


My friend Linda asked me to try to do a painting of her sweet Belle.
This is the result ... isn't she adorable ???
Actually it is amazing how much harder it is to paint a short haired dog than a long haired one
... this was quite a challenge.

I really wanted to try smudge painting feathers, I think it kind of looks a bit like fur now - lol  ... this is one of the kookaburra's near our home - I have so many photos of them. 
We can hand feed them - we do try not too but they are so friendly. 
I took the photo a couple of months ago now - before the floods. 
You know it is raining again, kind of makes me shudder these days ... I used to love it.

Girl with Cat

Normally I try to post the original photo as well, but it appears I have lost it
... mmm I think I MIGHT have saved over it ... silly me - tfl, Lisa

Another Getty Image ... this time I played with texture too ... tfl


 Just playing around here .... I know the eye colour isn't very natural looking but I kind of ended up liking the effect.
