I’m stocking up my stall for Fakenham Makers Market for 2018 and I’m eager to add some new products. I am very happy to include this tin of six cards. Lovely for a gift!
I have had the pleasure to be asked to do a drawing of the nativity to go on the front of the December issue of our church magazine. I am always nervous when I get specific commission especially because of the subject, I didn’t want it to turn out too sweet. I am actually pleased with the result and have used the image for a Christmas card. You can buy the cards from my Etsy Shop! 🙂
I love repeat pattern. I’m very happy to show you more of my printing I’ve been doing recently, experimenting with a new block, all on recycled paper.
I just made these super dragonfly print cards and wanted to share them with you.I had made the blue background on my Gelli plate and decided to block print on top of it with the same dragonfly block I already used and while the ink was still wet added a little sprinkle of glitter! Cut to size and mounted on recycled board with a little addition with my John Bull printing set and they’re good to go! 🙂
Just completed the ladybird as a finished work. She’s in my latest colouring book so that you can colour her in yourself and she will soon be available completed as a print and a greetings card! 🙂
It was officially the first day of spring on 1st of march. Ideal if you want to cheer someone up with a ‘Happy Spring’ card, printed with my newly carved block! Now available in my Online shop!
Remember this? I did this.
Printing on old cotton bed sheets is a good use of resources and saves waste and money. It doesn’t even matter what colour they are!
Wanting to get the print to look like my drawings, I dyed my fabric with watered down fabric printing ink in a variety of colours and printed over in black. A good result but I want to get my print more opaque. When dyeing my fabric I had paper underneath that got coloured with the ink too, so I printed on that. Wow, I love it! Some of that paper I used instead of discarding it, I made cards with.Always look for possibilities in your art waste or things you think are no good and maybe transform them into something worth keeping and using or giving as a gift 🙂
