Painting Florals

I hardly ever do any painting, to be honest I'm not very good at it, that's probably why I don't do it, but for some reason I felt like painting today, so I gave it a go. This is what I did...

It was actually quite therapeutic, maybe I should do some random paintings more often! Even if it is only something quick like the one above.

Valentines Day

It's that time of the Year again, Some people love it and Some hate it...It's Valentines Day!

I have seen a lot of nice cards around for Valentines day this year, so here is a little round up of the ones that caught my eye...

Starting with Etsy first...

Hand Drawn Screen Printed Card by 55His From Etsy
These Hand drawn and Painted cards made me chuckle, they're by 'Your Mum Rang' from Etsy
I really like this card, It's quite Rob Ryan-Esq. This design is by Folk Art Papercuts from Etsy

The High street stores also had a few nice cards...

The Above 4 Cards are a selection from Tesco

I love this 'Nelly the Elephant' Bag from Paperchase, It's Adorable.

 I also liked this Heart shaped box also from Paperchase

Although I did see quite a lot of nice ones in the shops, I decided to make mine (of course). My boyfriend and I said we weren't going to do cards this year but I thought I should do one just in case ;) Here it is, Quite simple really.

Primark SS13

The new Wrapping Paper range is out in Primark now for Spring Summer 2013 and one of my designs was chosen. 

Primark wanted a hearts wrap this year and I came up with quite a few options but thought simplicity would be better. I thought the design below was quite good for Primark as it suits a range of ages. I also like the fact that you can see a chevron pattern in between the hearts making a chevron stripe, followed by an almost diamond shape stripe and so on and It's out just in time for Valentines Day!!
What do you think?

Primark have also changed the look of their packaging labels, I quite like the cool new font as Packaging.

I also have some cards in store at the moment too. These 3 pack cards are images which are from other artists/photographers, so are NOT my images, but the cards were put together by me (Text, Colours, Mounts, Add ons). I love the shoe pack, I think its a really nice pack for women of all ages. My Fave is the shoe! (Of course)
