Just WHAT Am I Supposed To Do With This ? I Get this question alot....

I get this question alot in emails...pertaining to these You Print Digital Images from my shop. I say...Just what can you Not do with these images:)

There are endless ways to incorporate the details into your art work. I love digital alterations and collages. I have added a few of my collages here...also some of my three dimensional raku works so you can see the possibilities....

Original ACEO's can be printed and then enhanced with glitter, or charms, etc.
Detail pen and ink sketch studies
Raku Tiles, Pendants
Scrapbook background papers, embellishments
Greeting Cards
Ink jet printed fabric for pillows and quilts and T-Shirts
Images for Etching on brass, silver
Transfers to Polymer Clay
Tear Away Process for etching Precious Metal Clay
Doll Characters
Paper Puppets
Felting the creatures in three dimension, or "painting with felt" scenes
Creating textures based on details of the images.
Collage, paper or digital
Altered Book Covers or pages

If you let your muse loose with these images, play with them, study them in close up detail on your computer...there is food for a life time of creating.

It was never my intention that these should be printed as a small poster and hung on the wall, though that is a possibility. They are for inspiration, manipulation, education, and just plain out feeding your visual senses.

If you have questions about a technique from above photos...I'll try to answer as best I can.
Let your self get lost in these images. I'll even send you one free to see just what I am talking about! Let me hear from you. You might even have other suggestions....anything is possible:)
