Rabbits Rabbits!

Hi everyone! It's August . . . (I'm sure you know!) but how did we get here so quickly!? I was shocked to see that my last post was in April. My only excuse is that thankfully I have had a pretty full on few months; firstly some amazing projects that I've utterly loved (more details coming soon) and  secondly, I moved house! H'ray! I'm now a proud owner of a beautiful little home, complete with my own back garden. It's a real blank canvas so I'll be spending a few months decorating and filling it up with beautiful things! 
It's been difficult not to be inspired by the passing summer months - I think it's shown in my artwork a lot lately... especially the swifts and bunnies that have been visiting me in my new home....!

Here are some that have made an appearance in my work too - I look forward to showing you some more soon.

To Dry For




This weekend I thought I'd squeeze in a couple of designs for the ToDryFor Competition 2014. They have so many brilliant tea towel designs. Well,  I'm 99% sure that these designs will be totally unsuitable for screen print because of the swishy inky bits. . . but I was having too much fun to really mind! I thought I'd share them with you anyway.

Oils

Last Friday was a joyful day! My sister and I went to a beginner's oil painting class at Wistow Gallery's Artshed. What a treat. We had so much fun under the instruction and advice form the extremely talented and lovely Jane French . . . see below 
Here are our class efforts - not bad considering we were all beginners!






This is Lucie deep in concentration. We had never seen so many colours in a white flower! And below are my efforts. I think I now officially have the bug. . . just got to wait for the paint to dry now!




There are lots more classes available at the Wistow Gallery, from ceramics to watercolours - such a fab idea by Bridget - so just hop on to the website to see what is available. I can highly recommend it as a brilliant way to spend a day, in such beautiful surroundings.

Fabric!


I have to admit I'm a little bit excited about this. I might even have to learn to sew something! Well, maybe, as long as it's square and shaped like a cushion. I'm also now an official seller on Spoonflower. You can see my 'Oh My Studio Collection' here. * To be expanded . . . .!

The Pink Book

If you ask me, everyone needs a shiny Pink Book in their lives. How else would I know how to perfect marble nail polish!? I found this when having a little spring clean and I'm glad I did. Very old work, but lots of fun!

I'm very pleased to let you know that I've opened up a shop on Society 6! It really is such a wonderful website! You can buy prints, cases, cushions, tote bags and more! How cool is that!

This is my latest piece of artwork - i hope you like it! You can also get hold of some of my favourite designs for Oh My Studio, my little greetings card company.



Brrr February! Thank heavens for knitwear!
