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

Yet another rainy Sunday and I have finished wrapping the Christmas presents ... or at least I have finished wrapping the ones I have so far - lol ... still got a few to go.

So what next?    
Housework - definitely not ... I guess it must be time for another smudge painting.
This is what I came up with ... thanks for looking.

This is my parent's pug dog .... her name is Yappa 
she is a real sweetie !!

With this painting ... I used two of my photos and smudged and then blended both of them,
I am really happy with how this turned out ...  tfl, Lisa

I guess I am the resident fur-baby photographer for my family and friends ... most serious amateur photographers usually get asked to do weddings and other family gatherings (and yes I do too but I usually try NOT to - lol)  I'll take the fur-babies any day - I love them all.


Vali loves the boat ... I took this photo on a recent fishing trip ... tfl
