Adding to my Etsy

I've been busy creating more paper packs and hand carved stamps to put into my Etsy shop. I've also been re-organising my studio and having a clean out. 

I found this great little book in Typo, a shop that sells note books, pens and a whole range of arty stationery. I've been drawing something everyday and it's great fun. The paper isn't special, but it takes pen, pencils and water colour without bleeding through to the other side, the pages feel great when they're finished.

this is the view I was sketching, winter this year has produced some beautiful days.

Thanks again for dropping by and your lovely comments. Two posts this month, things are improving.

Back soon.

Time Flies

I can't believe I missed posting in May, it's June already, half of the year has almost gone. I taught a two day journal workshop from home and had a lovely group of students at Artified attend my Gelli plate printing workshop. That's where part of the month went. I've spent all of this week home trying to catch up on some projects. Following are some of the things I've been doing.

a fabric wall hanging made from my hand dyed fabrics and Liberty prints

this is still progressing

all hand stitched furnishing fabric scraps, this is one side of a bag

this is the other side, they were inspired by the work of French textile artist 
de Segolaine Schweitzer

I was very proud to have some of my sketchbook and journal pages printed in this lovely book too.

Thanks for visiting and your lovely comments, I really do hope to post again shortly (famous last words)

Catch up soon
