Watercolourful Quotes

I recently contributed to a scrapbook of images one friend was creating for another. I created these posters, designed to uplift and inspire... Both images are now available as prints, simply click on an image below :)

Father's Day Cards - Inspired by Craftseller Magazine

Cards. For. Men.
Did everyone collectively shiver?! Not an easy project!

I am not Craftseller magazines biggest fan (maybe a post on that another time?!), but when I saw the free "masculine" papers in their latest issue, I knew I needed to make the most of them, and push me slightly out of my comfort zone! 

I don't use that much patterned paper, but these came together with nice designs, a nice colour scheme, and without the normal stereotype of sport, beer and suits! I added some silver from my stash to lift the matte-ness of the papers; and broke out my new 1" circle punch too!

I added some textured cream card to this one, and my 1cm circle punch added some extra details, although reluctantly as it really needs replacing! I love the juxtaposition of the angular stripes in circles.

I like having something different to my norms enter the art room, and challenge me with design and placement :)

Art: Freedom

 The latest in my abstract painting series! 

I added some gold ink to this one, which gives it a beautiful shimmer :)

Again, prints are available on deviantArt, and this original is also up for sale, so contact me if you are interested :)
