Spanking new card designs!




hello!! I have been busy creating some new greetings cards to bulk up my portfolio. I wanted to try a slightly different style to show a bita versatility, so i created these in illustrator and made them look a bit more graphic/blocky. Here are the results, and I am rather proud of them if i do say so myself!

Penny Choo and Velvet Olive









Thought I'd post about a couple of things that have caught my eye recently and these are work by Penny Choo and Velvet olive. Penny choo was recently on the print and pattern blog, and her work features retro style imagery and colour palettes. She has a fab range of cards that I have enjoyed perusing through, I particularly like her scotty dog card. To have see more take a look at her website here

Then there is Velvet Olive. I first saw their work in Paperchase and instantly fell in love with the simple but bold shapes and colours and typography. The designs to me just stand out so much and I think i may just buy some cards and stick them up on my bedroom wall! The Velvet Olive website is here

Things I have been doing.





Hello again dear blog. I have neglected blogging recently because of trying to manage alot of other things...making my website look nicer being one of them! Any how lots has happened since my last post, I have made a new series of prints called 'french fancy' and also spent much time and effort (and alot of cursing and blinding) printing these so I could make them into purses. I also was at the Reet Sweet Valentines fair at the corn exhange in Feb, where I tried to sell these new additions! The fair was good fun, and our stall looked amazeballs in comparison to our first one. So, here are some piccies about it all that I should have put up a while ago! The top two pics feature work by Punto Belle, who does lovely light drawings and textured framed work that is all free machined. Find her work here.
My purses and new prints are available from my folksy store: hello, freckles
