Petroglyphs and PPF

Hello everyone! First of all for PPF this week here is the collared lizard watercolor in progress, " Cliff Guardian". I got a little carried away practicing making watermarks but that became half the fun,lol.




Also I want to share another graphic I did on the Wacom pad for a new Tshirt design (same theme rockin lizards of course!). The new tshirt is available at http://www.zazzle.com/geckoguru?rf=238157499475324454 The tshirt says on it "Reptiles Rock" but this is just a close up of the graphic.


And now for the petroglyphs...we saw these in Snow Canyon State Park on New Years Day. Happy New Year and Happy PPF and Happy Exploring everyone!!! Hugs, Deb

  19. Wow! Congrats on your T-shirts on Zazzle. Is that easy to do? Did you do mugs and other stuff, too? I love your watermarks, I don't know about that. What fun!

    1. Hi Gloria.. yes I designed all the stuff in the store and it really is easy! I did the graphics on the Wacom bamboo drawing pad in Photoshop Elements then the text is done within the Zazzle design center on their site. Some of them are from watercolors I did and just uploaded to the site. They make the actual products and ship them so its nice not having to hassle with that. Then they pay you a small royalty for your design on each item that sells. Its not a lot of money but its all free to do and its tons of fun!!!! Anyone can do it! The watermarks are done in Photoshop Elements too. I'm new at all of this and havin' a blast! The only drawback is it kinda gets to my neck, shoulder and eyes being on the computer so long at a time. Watercolor painting is easier on the body,lol.Hugs!
