Pattern Play

In my art journal:

There's a place where wonder,
expression, and play
Come together and brighten my day.

No need for correction,
Abandoning rules,
I make my marks with my favourite tools.

It's a place where I hide
when life gets too tough'
And a place to celebrate all that I love.

Me: 2012

Those Lines

Thank you EVERYONE for  your comments on my last post. I appreciate the suggestions and help you offered.
A few of you mentioned you could not see any lines through my pics. That was probably due to the fact I had to upload them at least five times each before they were even close to presentable.



The pic below is an example of the problem I am having when I upload. 


I don't believe it is a prob with my camera or scanner. And it never, ever
used to happen before and I do not seem to have the problems with any other place other than Blogger.
???????



 The caravan and the dog both uploaded, no lines on the first try.
Both 900 x 676 pix and high quality files???






 This one has the lines too.




With the two pics below I went back into photoshop and made them smaller still,
700 x 576 pix and saved them as medium files. They uploaded first time without the lines.
Hopefully I have a fix!!

Beautiful Decay

Moleskine Watercolour Sketchbook

I am still getting lines through my pictures. Changing the browser does not make much difference. I have made the images smaller which has not helped?? Perhaps it has something to do with using photoshop? I'm puzzled??

Day and Night and Awful Lines

Help!


I am wondering if any other people have trouble with uploading their pictures with blogger??
It can take five or six goes sometimes for my picture to load without those awful lines through it; as seen in my first picture below. I have been through Blogger with a fine-tooth comb trying to find a solution.
Such a huge waste of time! I am seriously thinking of taking my blogs to wordpress!

Please, if anyone has the same issues or can help in any way please comment.

Day,
turn over the page

Scans from my sketchbook


I try to make time everyday to draw something. It does not have to be, and often never is, a fabulous work of art. The point is I thoroughly enjoy the process, it is relaxing and the practise is valuable. I like to use my Moleskine watercolour sketch book and notebook but if they are not on hand anything at all will do.
