I think I have mentioned before that I upload some of my photos to an online site called mydoodle where my images are offered by them for people to use in order to create their own wall art or greetings card designs. I'd never thought of doing this until mydoodle - formally known as Createtoday emailed me and asked me to consider this project. I receive a small amount of commission if any designs are used and so I decided why not?
As usual when I start something new the idea grows and this resulted in me setting up a blog and website both called Designs on Nature.
Then earlier this month I visited one of the blogs that I follow Graphically UK where Helene mentioned that she had started doing the same thing but used a company called Fine Art America.
I visited the site and was interested as this site doesn't just operate in the UK but has a more international audience. Wouldn't it be exciting if one of my images turned up on a wall in the USA or Japan etc.?
I was concerned that Helene would think I was just nudging in on her act and so I emailed her and asked if she would mind me signing up to also use FAA and as a result of our email 'conversation' I decided to upload a small number of images and see what happened. Helene has an extensive portfolio which is worth a look - mine is nothing like as wide ranging.
If you fancy having a peep or maybe even having a go at uploading photos yourself you could have a peep at my mydoodle portfolio here of my FAA portfolio here. The tentative gardening link is that you will probably recognise some of the images as ones I've used on this blog.
