I'm back making videos!

It's been a long while since I made an art video for you all, but here I am back with an update and a peek into my book 'The Adventures of Snuggle Bunny' and some of my latest paintings.


I'm hoping to do regular videos and maybe some Google Hangouts too in the future. Stay tuned :) x

Trying something new

I've been itching to do some more realistic work for a long time but whenever I tried it just didn't click for me, until last week when I decided to do some new little paintings of birds. Here is my first one called 'House Sparrow', I think you would call this style more impressionistic, which I am really pleased with.

There are little spots of shimmering glitter on the birdie and the tree branch, so I still got to add my little mixed media accents to it.

Original now available at my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/200673394/sparrow-painting-original-painting-4-x-4

Stitchery Fun!

P1120402

As you may already know, I recently released my first embroidery pattern in my Etsy shop.

Well I’ve had some very talented ladies join my stitching team and have beautifully stitched up this pattern and I couldn’t wait to show you their results!

The above is by Hannah from SpansStudio, you can read all about her experience of stitching this pattern on her blog.

Then we have Nelly’s beautiful version. Nelly chose to make a wall hanging and I think it turned out great! You can see more photos here.

I love the different stitches that have been used in both versions. My team used pastels to fit in with my vintage/country style but you can use any colours you like.

Nelly is now working on a ‘bright’ version for herself, which I cannot wait to see!

The patterns can be used for many different things such as; pillows, wall hangings, hoop art, table cloths, hankies, tea towels, bedding. You choose.

I have more team stitcheries to come, so stay tuned for those. I’ll also be adding more designs to my pattern collection very soon.

If you have photos to share of what you’ve made with my patterns come on over to our Flickr group and upload them, I’d love to see.

Blessings
