Yesterday, I made some designs on zazzle with a watercolor that I had done of honey bear talking on the telephone. Each of the nearly 100 products had to be designed individually, because I had to center and fit the design anyway so I ended up playing around with some additions to each design. My granddaughters decided they need cellphone covers that were among the designs with honey bear talking on the phone with a pink background sitting on a purple square. Too funny – they are nearly 6 years old and 3 years old – not quite old enough for a cellphone yet, but don’t tell them that.

On the water bottle and on some of the products – a simple pink background shows through on the phone and as accents on honey bear which turned out to be pretty cute too –

When I did the doggy tshirt – it looks like Honey Bear is talking on the phone to another honey bear having a long discussion because of where the blocks of color sit – one in pink and one in purple. Too cute – it would be fun for any small girl dog to wear, especially one that loves teddy bears anyway. Some of the other designs incorporated a second honey bear in the design to look like the two are having a phone conversation and at least one of the cellphone covers says, “bearly working” as part of the design which seemed appropriate and funny.

With a slight change of elements, this cellphone case has a modern look while still being a teddy bear collectible showing off the honey bear watercolor design. The turn of a purple square to be an angular element against the pink background and having honey bear with his original white background gives a nifty little stage where bear is more obvious. When I made some designs with this same watercolor last year, my focus was on not trusting a bear to stay home without making long distance calls on your phone while you’re not there. I don’t know why it was the thing on my mind at the time to go with the design, but it never occurred to me to add color elements and play with how the design is presented as I did yesterday.

When the designs were being created using the zazzle editor and ideas as they happened, I created several different tshirt designs using the pink and purple squares and one or more honey bear figures positioned in different ways to look like he was peering out from or sitting on the squares and talking amongst themselves on the phone while nobody was looking . . .

This award gift has the “Bearly Working” Award with Honey Bear and there is at least one cellphone case that says the same thing. It is possible that a tshirt would be pretty good with that saying too. I did some other teddy bear designs and heart designs over the last few days, thinking about Valentines Day and things that would be pretty for that. These heart designs turned out pretty and so when I was designing the honey bear set, I had to try at least a couple that incorporated both the honey bear on the phone watercolor and one of my new hearts designs for Valentines. They turned out nifty but were only used for a couple of the products. I would probably have to go make an entire set using the hearts and honey bear for them to be on other things. Probably won’t do that – it is very time-consuming.

Honey Bear makes a cute pink hat for ball games – he’s a pistol alright. The children believe this honey bear is a girl teddy bear – a she bear. I don’t know. It seems right to call him honey bear – but as I said, the girls think of “him” as a her – probably is.

Obviously Honey Bear is a very social creature – here is a conversation nearly worthy of a Norman Rockwell painting –

Now, that is bear to identify whose luggage it is – can’t miss it. Allows the back side to be customized with name and whatever other information would be handy.

I also did a set of products using this one of my gardens paintings which turned out really pretty as this message and note board. I like the pathway through this garden and the way the sunlight hits the leaves in the tree next to the path and the beautiful colors of the flowers in the sunlight’s sparkle. One of these days, I’m going to do an early morning garden painting with the dew on the flowers as the sunlight first glints on them. I love that look in the real world early in the morning while the air is still cool. There is a sparkle to everything and the blue cast of the morning starts to push aside just as the glint of the sun on leaves and flowers is at its strongest. Very pretty.

And, some of the heart designs – I didn’t use all of the ones created a few days ago yet. There were about two dozen designs and so far, I’ve only used about five of them on the zazzle store products. They are different and I like them. Daughter says some of them are not viable – too extreme. I may have used neon green in the ones she hated though contrasting against the magenta to make the heart images stand out from the surface more – that was probably what she didn’t like about it, I hope. But these are fun and made some pretty things using them on the various products zazzle lets me make.

Then I did a whole set of products which have the dragoness rising from the water computer art that I designed about a year ago – and this time, I added the word Dragoness in a gothic / old english looking font to the products. She is a bit dark though, but I love the way she looks and the structures of the skin around her eyes and nostrils. Maybe on the next design iteration of this dragon, I’ll give her some sparkly laser piercing type of eyes or have her sending out flames through her nostrils rather than calmly rising from the sea . . . how fun.

And, then I did a set of things with this photograph of the snow right as the sun was coming up through the trees that I took a couple years ago in Georgia near my parent’s house. Very sparkly. There were some other nifty photos I took that day too which I had forgotten about that might make some really pretty winter themed products – maybe. Just about every day, I’ve been designing products – there were some clouds photographic ones I did a few days ago with the sunlight of the late afternoon on big billowy clouds and the ocean series I’ve been trying to get all put on the store with the different products using those paintings and images I created several years ago. There are some other bear art products done with a different version of honey bear originally created in pastels making him very fluffy looking and some sailboat sailing art that I put on some things. Overall, I like a lot of them – but the ones of Honey Bear Talking on the Phone and the Dragoness ones, I like especially. They turned out really good.

By the way, I’m still very frustrated about the disaster that happened with my moving – financially an absolute disaster. But, I’m working on it and maybe things will get easier.
