More Wrap

I really enjoyed seeing my leaf pattern as a wrapping paper so decided to check out how some other patterns might look. 
I really like how the cactus pattern came out with my faithful baking twine : )

Happy Birthday Head

I've been working on some new greetings card designs lately and here's a little preview of the first.
 I really want one of these head flower pots, they are really funny.  I printed these on speckled recycled card, it looks quite nice with a bit of texture. You can now purchase this cards in my shop.

Tall Ship Birthday Card

I made this card for my grandpas 80th birthday. His present from my family was a trip on a tall ship so this seemed like an appropriate theme!

New leafy patterns

Here are some new patterns I have been working on alongside a range of greetings cards. 
I think these would work nicely as wrapping paper so have mocked up one of each to see how they might look : )

A colourful January

No blues here! No particular resolutions either. To me life is about balance, and I think that's the best way to live. This last week has been lovely, filled with fun and family. On sunday we celebrated my Grandpas 80th birthday. We had a big lunch with cocktails, not forgetting the jelly. According to my nephew Luke, it's simply not a party without jelly. My sister made an incredible cake of Grandpa in his canoe exploring the Mullion coast.

 I spent a bit of time hanging out at The Colour Factory whilst in Winchester. 
I love my mums collection of vintage matchboxes which she is using as little trinket boxes for her porcelain birds.

A great chocolate shop/cafe recently opened in Winchester called Chococo. They do awesome Orange hot chocolates and you get to sample chocolates with your drink which were also delicious. I love their Campbell soup cans filled with roses against the bright tables and giant bauble displays.

Myself and James visited the RWA Annual open exhibition as well last week which was fantastic and well worth checking out. You can read more about it on ONEFOUNDSEVEN my new blog which is co-authored by Emma Ewer. Head over and take a look. It is a site for and about creative lifestyle in Bristol and beyond. 

Finally put up a lot of frames we had hanging around in our flat. I really like having a focal art wall, still a few gaps for future pieces.

 Hope you too are having a great start to the year : )

Mulberry S/S'14

This is a new piece inspired by Mulberry's S/S'14 Collection which you can check out here. I love the styling for this shoot. Mulberry is such a great, classic brand. The lovely animals included are always a plus too! : )

Save the Date

I thought I would share this Save the Date I did a couple of months ago for Natasha and Matthew, a couple marrying later in the year. I really enjoyed doing this piece for them. They chose a timeline theme illustrating the venue that they met in, where they got engaged and where they are to marry.
