I Joined S6

In late August, I discussed a situation that we have with my husband about the house. He thought it was a neat idea. But how to accomplish the idea? … That answer came when I found Society6. Now, I actually have heard of this site before, but was not thinking it would be a good fit for me. I had seen a lot of pop-modern-text art on the site. I’m a nature photographer, how could I fit in there. But this site offered something that I needed and I could not find it anywhere else, so I created an account. I couldn’t just upload that one image, and leave. ? A shop with one image, how silly. So over these past few weeks I have uploaded twelve images. These images are mostly old digital pictures that I have edited. I’m reminiscing on our past by looking at our old pictures. (Still figuring out this new computer.) Some stand out and I wanted to improve them. Plus I still needed to learn the new art programs that I got for the new computer. ( I do like the vintage camera applications. I wish the painter had a timer on it. Or worked faster.)

As for that project, it’s not done. Haven’t even started making it. We actually tried to beat the rainy season and got started on replacing boards, securing boards, sanding and staining boards. The deck is now safe to be on, and I no longer have to worry about someone’s foot going through a board, or someone going over a railing. Alas, the outdoor work is incomplete. The rain won. So while we wait for another break of sunlight, we will begin on the dining room. And when that is done we’ll get the project that brought me to Society6 completed.

After completing some uploads, I did go browsing, and found a great number of fellow nature photographers. A lot has changed since I first saw the website a few years ago. And some people are already discovering my work on S6. YAY!

Here is a screen grab, and the store link is below. There are birds, landscapes, a pony and a white wolf to start off with. The merchandise is limited to a few selections for housewares, iPhone & laptop cases, other than prints.

Image Transfer Art

image

These are some image transfers that I had done in October on some craft wood. They were a birthday gift for my mom. She was only able to walk away with the flower plaque because my little one claimed the butterfly box as hers.

The transfers were very easy to do. Just print (matte photo paper) a reversed (not always remembered nor necessary) picture, cover it well in Mod Podge, press the image down on the wood and smooth it out. Let it sit for a few hours. Take a moist cloth towel and let that sit on top for an hour. Take the towel and rub the paper away.
You can coat the wood with a sealant, protector, or apply a coat of Mod Podge. It will help protect the inks from environmental pollutions that may be present in the home like moisture, aresol spray cans, cigarrettes; and fadeing due to direct sunlight.
