Design

Hi Friends!

Hope you’re all keeping well. I spent the last few days designing some new Christmas cards which will be available in my Etsy, Folksy and Urban Makers shop very soon.

The cards will come in a pack of five and they’re blank inside for you to write your own personal message. Who knows what this Christmas will look like, whether we’ll be able to spend Christmas together or if it’ll be a Zoom Christmas Day? For now though, keep in touch with your loved ones by sending them a Christmas card.

I’ll also be adding some more new A5 postcards too so I’ll keep you all updated about it.

Stay safe and thanks for reading!

UPDATE: New Christmas cards are now available in my Etsy shop!

It’s been so long since I last updated my Society6 profile. If you’re not familiar with Society6, it’s an online platform where you can upload your designs/artwork which you can then have unique products such as tote bags, pillow cases, t-shirts… literally, the list goes on!

I recently designed two abstract pattern artwork which I’ve then applied it onto various products. I had a lot fun with both artwork as there was no direction as such; I always think I work best at making it up as I’m going along (which I don’t think is a bad thing!)

I love the different textures and colours so I’m going to continue with this and maybe build up a portfolio of work with it. Who knows, I’m having way too much fun right now!

*EDIT*

I’ve also added them to my Etsy shop now, see here and here for both of them.

Enjoy the rest of your Monday and take care.

What have I been up to since my last post? I went back to Doncaster to get my dress altered (SO exciting!), I’ll be back up in June for a final fitting and then that’s that done. Bought my wedding shoes, got part of my hair accessories sorted out and I’ve been making even more flowers and I’m planning to make some more right up until the big day. I’ve already made enough to go on the tables, but now I’m not sure whether to still make a large hanging mobile or whether I should stick with something simple. I’ve been looking at Pinterest for ideas- see below for ideas and inspiration.

Either free standing flowers or making really big flowers hanging off from the beams. I like this one from Antropologie as the whole displays feels organic and natural; as though the flowers are growing around the mannequins.

These ones above I’m feeling very adventurous- or too slightly adventurous! Since I’ve made loads of flowers I could hanging them down using bits of fishing wire attached to a large frame or bamboo sticks. Or, I was planning on making a flower garland going from one side of the room to the other.

What do you all think I should do? Any tips for me?
