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!

Year of the Horse

I designed this pattern for the Chinese New Year: Year of the Horse. The social, intelligent and energetic creature - and a definite favourite of mine. I drew nothing else as a kid! (unfortunately I'm a Rooster - although I don't know what this means. More research needed!) Wishing you all a very prosperous and happy year ahead:)
