As a lover of all things maritime and a descendant of admirals and sailors, I am often drawn to centuries-old paintings of seacraft at work or play. I created Flying Colours with two images far apart in time. One layer is the Russian Squadron at Malta, 20 October 1827, painted by Alfred Gomersal Vickers which is in the public domain. The other is a photograph of Bembridge Lifeboat which I took the other day. I have melded them together using Photoshop’s various tools to make it look as if it were an original 19th-century image.

Available at the following galleries:

Hello Everyone,

I’ve been creating another collage with another beautiful piece of clip art from The Graphics Fairy!

The Graphics Fairy

On this occasion I added various layers of vintage documents to Karen’s beautiful birdcage image and played around with colours and blending until I came up with Golden Tweets. I’m sure I was subconsciously inspired by getting to grips with Twitter in the last couple of weeks!

I’m currently putting it onto various products in my Zazzle gallery so do take a look.  Though I ‘say it myself as shouldn’t’, it does look rather delicious on an envelope!Golden Tweets envelope

Take care and keep laughing,
Sarah
