Artist cards

I sell my artist cards at New Mills Original so I thought I'd share with those who aren't local to the gallery what my hand embellished art cards look like.

It is a print of my hand stitched 'Spring Tree' which I then hand stitch tiny beads onto to accentuate the colours and add dimension. I then attach them with foam pads which creates a 'floating' effect.

Father's Day

The special day for Dads is creeping up fast, only a month to go! So I've been busy making lots of cards; simple bold designs in bright but manly colors and patterns.

You can find them in New Mills Original gallery, Fibre in the Manchester Craft and Design Centre and select designs in my Etsy and Folksy shops.

I've also been working on a few commissions, I'll post up the pictures in a week or so once I know the recipients have had chance to see them!

In the zone...

I hadn't made any new greetings cards for a while but I've been in the zone these last few days and have crafted some new designs. I thought I'd share a few with you. I might put some in my Etsy shop which, I'm hoping, will raise some interest as it's not been very fruitful as of yet!

I am taking part in the Derbyshire Open Arts Festival at the end of May bank holiday weekend, so I have been busy creating new sketches and paintings to show. I'll give you a sneak peek at one of my most recent drawings.

There is still lots for me to do in preparation for the event however, I may have to get my skates on!
