A couple of sketches

A couple of little illustrations I did last week to keep me busy.
In other news my bag design was featured on Leap Media for Baker toms.
I have been very busy with DK work and the new children's book I have been working on. Hopefully I can show you some images soon. I still haven't manged to work out why no body can leave comments, and why I can't leave any for you.
I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Recently my good friends Faye and John got engaged, and I am very excited and happy to be one of the many bridesmaids in July. I wanted to give them something that they could keep, so I made this. They type and the little heart are hand embroidered and the leaf pattern was created with my sewing machine. Its not perfect, but you can tell its handmade, lets say it adds to the charm.
I have made a promise to myself, when I get to 80 followers, only 11 people away, I will give away some goodies so keep your eyes peeled and if you think any of your friends would like my work and this blog send them this way, everyone is welcome!
I also wanted to say thank you to you all. I am very greatful that you have chosen to follow my work and blog, it means alot. So would you all like to come round for tea and cake?

I make things too

A ring I made for my good friends birthday last week. I created the top of the ring by hand sewing beads onto felt. I'm happy with the out come, and I didn't really want to give it away, but she liked it so it made it all worth while. Have a lovely weekend :)

It seems that people are having trouble leaving comments on my blog, and I can't leave comments on other blogs (which is highly frustrating!) If you are have problems on my blog or others it would be great if you could let me know on my facebook page. Thanks

A short walk in Black and White

A few image I took today when I went out for a little stroll. I am very lucky to live by the beautiful south coast. I hope you all had a great weekend :)

Some sketches of birds! I will soon be colouring up the birds and text to make into cards, patterens and textiles, all coming soon! I hope you are all well and you have a chipper weekend.

Hello lovelies. I was wondering if you could let me know which cards you like as I am hoping to sell some cards soon, and maybe I will give away a free pack sometime next week! Two things will be changing, the background colour of We three kings and the text on the card with the raindeer and baubles.
It would be great to get your feedback, thanks :D

When I try to leave comments it wont let me, does anyone know what I can do?

I have been hat wearing

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I have been away. I went to Falmouth, Cornwall for my graduation (above). Seeing everybody again was great, it just made me relise how much I actually missed everyone. I'm finding it quite hard to keep working the past couple of weeks, but I am going to push through this drawing block and come out the other side with lots of colourful new illustrations (Hopefully!)

On a better note, I have a new laptop YAY, so it wont take me 20mins to upload anything now! I am also starting to make some things for my etsy shop (I know I say that every time! But I just want to make sure I sell things I am really happy with.) I also won the Baker Tom's Comp, so my design will be on tote bags across Cornwall. Click here to see the winning design.

I hope you have all been having a lovely few weeks, and who knows I might be doing a give away soon!

So who are the people in the photos? Click on the names so see their work: Gemma(I can't seem to find Gemma, but soon as I do I will make a link), Lucy, Sarah, Philly, Laurie, Annaliese and Lisa

Hever Castle

As I mentioned in an earlier blog I went to Hever Castle with a couple of friends. These are a few sketches from the painting dotted around the walls of the castle.

I was also inspired to create some historic characters after meeting Emma Carisle, she has a lovely style so go an check her out.

Harry the robin makes a come back!

Hello all!
I was wondering if you could help me. I am having a little trouble with the background of this image, the trees, and maybe the white space (but I think I might leave it white).
I was wondering if you could please tell me if you think the trees in this image link with the whole picture, or are they too distracting. I did try to have a solid colour but that really didn't work.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. :)

A few sketchs put to colour. I'm trying to work on my younger characters, next I will try to sketch a group of children together, which for some reason I haven't really done yet. I hope you all enjoyed the bank holiday weekend. I went to Hever Castle for the first time and its truly beautiful, if you ever get the chance to take a look around the gardens I would highly recomend it :)
