Some fun digital papers in The Scrapettes shop on Etsy - the great thing about digital is you don't have to trudge to the shops to get started. Once you buy the paper, it's sent to you immediately as a high resolution (300 dpi) A4 paper download. The rest is up to you!
I found American artist/illustrator Laura Ferrara's work through Pocketful Illustration Mag - I did try to find her website but it doesn't seem to be online at the moment, although she does have a Flickr account and it's well worth a visit.
Autumn colours and textures in the gardens of Battleby
Mike's studio at Battleby
Lovely day spent with my friend at his new venture - Scottish National Heritage's artist in residence. It's based at SNH’s conference centre at Battleby in Perthshire, which hosts a wide range of events and activities each year attended by nearly 10,000 people. His residency will look at how the use of the garden and designed landscape can increase awareness and understanding around a range of issues and opportunities facing Scotland’s natural environment. Mike's created a specific website relating to his residency here and well worth a visit. I was lucky with the weather that day - it was a stunning autumn day.
As well as designing for clients, I've gone into working with my good friend Tash on our latest wee adventure : The Scrapettes. Really loving just having fun with mark making and mixed media for our digital scrapbooking papers etc That's me on the left by the way and Tash is on the right LOL and these are one of our latest pieces for Halloween - zombie mummies arrrrrrrghhhhh!
So all my scrapbooking out there and all my crafty friends please let me know what you would like to see in our shop!
