This is just a FUN shop to browse!!!  Jeliza, the self-named shop, has amazing photography!

You really have to read Jeliza's bio to see how she began her venture into photography and to learn some new lingo.  Photos that have been "untouched" are classified as "photos".  Photos that have been digitally enhanced are called "photoillustration".

Everything in this shop is simply... beautiful!  The photoillustrations are really interesting and just love the artistic talent that is shown in them.

Check out the "fantastic and whimsical" section for some very, unique photos.  And who doesn't LOVE flowers?  The "nothing but flowers" is a must-see category, too.

Jeliza has a great blog where she gives some really great tips on photography, showcases other artisans, and more!
