Thank you for reading. I also make art. You can see things with my designs on at my shop here. Could even treat yourself if you wanted to. Just saying. If buying art is not your thing, but you would like to support what you see I also have a Patreon Page here.
I’ve not posted very much for the last few weeks as it was Christmas and since then I’ve been ill at home. On the run up to Christmas I was actually being quite careful to take care of my self, going to the gym and eating well, but I think it was a bit a a too little too late situation – for lots of us last year was quite a slog. At the moment I’m concentrating in just doing what my body seems to want – lots of sleep, watching trashy telly and eating good food. I have been very fortunate to have my boyfriend looking after me.
However, I did manage to finish the Christmas presents I was making before Christmas in time to hand them out at the appropriate time. Here is one of them below, minus it’s frame as the reflection off the glass made it difficult to take a photo. What do you think?
I’ve been working on a little project as a gift for my parents this Christmas. This time last year they bought themselves a little dog, who they fuss over elaborately. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a loved little dog. Other than my sisters little dog, that is. Lucky little dogs!
I’ve been working on this one for a while, and there were a few ‘works in progress’ posts on this project as I went along. I am thinking of this as the second in the series to this piece. I am thinking about a series of designs that relate to the concept resilience, of how we keep going after knocks, bruises, broken bones and heart break. DIY should repair.
Here is the finished thing. What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts.
I finished off this design this week. Magpies made of moonlight flowers. I finished this one off by using the silhouette of the magpies I finished off earlier in the year as the as an outline to cut the moonlight flowers I completed a couple of weeks ago. All completed in photoshop.
So far I have it on a white background. What do you think? Would something darker be better?
I’ve been working on this one for a while now, and I’m still not quite there yet. It’s already involved hundreds of flowers, and I’ve had to cut 30-40 more today. Then each flower is placed by hand. So a real study in patience, this one. Patience.
So I entered another design to Threadless. Threadless have a rolling competition that you can enter your designs to and get the Threadless community to vote and comment on your stuff. It’s lots of fun, and helps other people get to see your stuff, which may help you build a following and possibly sell somethings. I entered the design below this time, which unfortunately is anatomically backwards, but never mind.This is the photoshopped, finished off collage of this piece here. I’ll write a blog soon about how I got there.
