Hazards of painting

I decided to paint two huge (A0) canvases for the girls rooms. Matilda's room is quite girly and pink with birds flying about. While Georgia's room has space invaders and is a great sea blue (more photos to follow). I wanted them to have their own stamp for their rooms - quite literally! 

Birthday Card

This was a birthday card for Greg. I hoped he liked it. I used Letra-set for all the small tiny stars and gold ink to get the letters to really shine properly.

Vintage wall paper

I loooooove this old vintage sample of wallpaper I found on the internet. It is rather twee but fabulous. I could have a whole bedroom like this contrasted with some seriously great piece of neon strip lighting...


A card I drew for someone to say a huge thank you.... Flowers always work I think.

Clay model

I haven't blogged in a while so now I am in overdrive!
Here is a first attempt of making a 3D model of my characters for my book. Once they had dried an arm and leg fell off!

A present for Lois

Birthday Present

A customised bag for my niece's birthday.  I found this great canvas bag at Claire's

And then I cut out felt and sewed it in! Easy!
