New, for Fishfest 2014 …

It’s that time of year again, this Saturday is our very local and very fantastic Fishfest Arts Market, from 11am. In order to show something new I’ve used photos of some of my favourite places in Bristol. This is a small trial run to see what people think – I’ve used my own photos which I’ve then adapted:










I’ll certainly use some of these myself, I hope others like them too!


Is it too Early for Thoughts of Valentines Day?

I’m sure that I’m actually a lot later than the majority of card designers but nevertheless, I think that now is a good time for me to be thinking about possible Valentine’s designs. I’ll be working on a new idea this coming week but for now, have been looking at using some older designs but in a new way:



Over the next week or so, I’ll be looking at some other ideas and will hopefully find a few designs that could work well as cards.

A Gift for a New Little Person …

My first attempt at doing a ‘zen doodle’ with letters was a few posts ago when I ‘did’ LOVE. I’ve been wanting to attempt individual letters for a while and then, just over a week ago, a friend gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, William. He provided me with the perfect opportunity – I am relying on the fact that she has far too much to do at the moment with a toddler and a new baby and so she therefore won’t see this post in the next few days !!
I’ve based the W on a sunrise doodle that I’ve used many times over the past 2 years, most of them have included a paper balloon though, I don’t think this needs one but I may cut one out to see how it looks:


Final Flourishes for Fishfest …

It’s that time of year again, time for Fishfest 2013. I’m really excited to have a stall at the Arts and Crafts Market again and today, I put the finishing touches to the layout of my stall:







I know Fishfest won’t be in the dark on saturday but I couldn’t resist taking the final picture. Hopefully we will all be really busy, it should be the best Fishfest yet !
