TBT Throw Back Thursday : Digital Paper Collage

My daughter told me about 'Throw Back Thursday" #tbt and it sounded like a lot of fun so I decided to reminisce a wee bit with some fun digital collaging I produced for some of my patterns I created.  Really just to make them look different from the usual way digital paper is shown. Ahhhhh.... I think I'll put them on my Pinterest too.

People Per Hour : T-Shirt Design

A lovely t-shirt project I've been working on with PeoplePerHour.  Which one would you have chosen?

Aqua Blue Damask Pattern Moodboard : Zazzle

My aqua sea blue damask designs with a modern twist are available in lots of lovely accessories and home decor products.  A set of 6 co-ordinated patterns were created for the damask/paisley prints.  I describe them as curvaceous, soft and calming theme of aqua sea blues for this textile print pattern range and these are just a few so why not pop in to my Zazzle outlet to see the full range!  Grab a coffee and get clicking!

Pinterest Followers Thank You!!

When you work in the isolation of a studio and a computer you just never really know how people are responding to you or your work.  So to find that I have over 160,000 followers on Pinterest is just amazing and I wanted to thank all these lovely people for pressing my 'follow' button.  I don't know if I can ever thank each of you personally but I wanted to let you know how delighted and honoured I am!!

I started Pinterest as I kept losing links and web addresses that I was using with my students so pinning seemed a perfect solution for me.  I also wanted to gather inspiring work in the hope that it would rub off on me as at the time I was creatively drained.  It was also an opportunity to network, research and let other creative people know that I 'liked' their work (everyone loves a bit of support). But it is so easy to get hooked on pinning my mantra to my students was that it should be used in conjunction with doing - painting, collage, printing, making, sketc…


You must know someone who needs a bit of cheering up? Well, I have a sweet little surprise giveaway that might brighten up their day and show them someone cares or loves them.

I'm calling it my 'PERK UP POSTCARD' giveaway and every month I'll be sending an original piece of my work (approximately the size of a postcard) to the lucky winner.

This month the nominations need to be in before 27th February so I can post the artwork by the 1st March (approx).

 - Just tell me who you would like to nominate for this and why.

 - Leave the who and why (along with an email address) below this post.

A real flurry of activity with society6 and I found these 3 works being chosen for the society6 shop!  Amazing as 2 of them have only just been published by me.  Thank you society6!!!  So pleased I found my other email and password or I would never have known LOL!
