Wedding Bells.....not mine!

Recently I have been busy designing more wedding invitations. I loved the fact that the couple I made the first ones for were so pleased with it all.....It made me want to do more! Here are a few designs. They are now for sale in my Etsy shop. 

I'm rather excited about it!

A Valentine's Day Card.

This nice boy is now available as a card in my Etsy shop....with free postage! 

In other news, I watched West Side Story for the first time ever last night and cried my eyes out! 
I loved it.

I like patterns.

I am really enjoying painting simple patterns like this at the moment, in muted tones. 

Houses and Mountains! 

I'm thinking about making printed t shirts again......

I had a nice time last night painting these triangles. 

I have set myself a little project based on patterns. I use a lot of pattern within my work but I think actually making a pattern is slightly different. 

It struck me that a pattern made by hand is a different thing entirely to one made digitally. Mistakes  are sometimes made, and the mark making is not always even. In a way, I think a linear pattern like this one, becomes organic because of the way it's made. In my case, the pattern becomes less neat the further on it goes. I'm not sure this effect could be made if it was produced digitally.

Have I been thinking about this too much? Probably.

It's January.

So far, I am enjoying this sunny January.

I was lost in thought the other day, and it occurred to me that I don't tend to make new year resolutions. 
If I do, I don't really tell anybody. 

This boy who dresses up as a bear has made some though. They are pretty ambitious don't you think? !

I got a pet hamster for Christmas. She's called Josephine.
