Playing With Photoshop

I’ve been playing around with Photoshop trying figure out how to make my own clipart for my business cards and my blog. It’s been fun, but has taken up most of my time. 

It’s always hard for me to stop once I get into something and I should really be painting. I did, however, get my new “coffee art” painting listed on eBay last night.

The wonderful aroma of coffee and chocolate topped with whipped cream is the perfect start to your day. This decadent delight in served up in a green diner style mug with dark red trim.

I love playing around with artwork on the computer and need to do this as a general part of my day.  I still can’t figure out how to make something on Microsoft word and share it on my blog.  I love the mirror effect shadows that I can get, but can’t seem to share them on my blog.  Any tips?


  1. I am sorry I can´t help you with taht, but I am sure this would be such an awesome clipart

  2. I just love all your art. I just bought another two pictures off eBay. Christine's Tea Shoppe.

  3. Cathie, I love all your art! Glad you are having fun creating!!

  4. Hi Catherine,
    Nice to 'virtually' meet you. It's great to connect with other decorative painters, although my style is quite different to yours.

    Are you in Australia? Im in NSW.

    I play around with things on the computer quite a bit - maybe if you told me what you were trying to achieve, I could point you in the right direction.
    What are you trying to do in Microsoft Word to upload to the blog?

    You can contact me through my blog if you like, by clicking on my name.
