Dancing Peacock iPad mini cover


I have just finished designing this dancing peacock iPad mini case. The painting of the dancing peacock I did using Corel Painter Essentials and Photoshop Elements. You can then add your own text, monogram or name to personalise the iPad mini cover. I hope you like it.

Owl designs that inspire


Yesterday I did a post on my own owl designs. Well here some designs by others that I really like and inspire me. Mainly because of the intricate work with these designs:

Aren’t they wonderful! If I had an iphone I would buy these cases.

Inspired by baby Rainbow Lorikeets


My last post showed photos I had taken of baby Rainbow Lorikeets. Here is the iphone 3 case I designed on Zazzle with the photograph, using a close-up on the feathers:

Photo of Baby Rainbow Lorikeets


I took these photos of two cute baby rainbow lorikeets after the rain. They landed on my deck and just started preening themselves. They seemed to be totally unaware of me. I felt it was a rare privilege to watch them and even rarer to be able to take these photos:

These photos were one of my inspirations to start up my Zazzle website Clareville and one of the very first series of designs I put on gifts.

Click here to look or click on the photos. On some gifts I was able to put a close-up of the feathers creating a wonderful colorful texture.

I would love to know your thoughts, so please comment below.
