Christmas Crafting in July

That’s right! I have started my Christmas crafting early. I usually forget to start my Christmas handmade pieces and before I know it, it’s late November and I’ve missed my chance. This year I have started really early to get some Christmas products in my Etsy shop.

I have been making…..

3D Paper Flowers for Crafts ~ Coming soon to my Etsy shop!

Hi everyone!

I have been busy creating 3D paper flowers for the use of scrap booking, card making and general crafts! I thought it would be a good idea to sell my paper flowers for others to use rather than always creating pieces with them on myself.
These 3D paper flowers have been made with paper and card of all colours and patterns, and have been handpainted by me. All flowers have been coated in a thick glittery paint which makes them glimmer and harden to make them more secure.

I use my 3D paper flowers for various crafts. Card making, creating artwork on canvases, making magnets and present labels, but I am sure there’s hundreds of ways you can use them to brighten up anything! All you need to do is secure them down with a strong glue, or a 3D foam pad. Alternatively you can open up the flower and use the split pin! Simple 🙂

Here’s some pictures of Paper flowers which will be available in my Etsy shop soon:

Flowers of Spring and Love; Painted bowl project

Last week I decided to start a project of painting up an old wooden bowl that was in our Shed, that my Dad gave to us before Christmas. The bowl is approximately 44cm in diameter. I began by painting vibrant shades of blues and green for the sky and grass.

I then started painting flowers of all colours and sizes on the grass and in the sky…

….And this is the final piece. I have yet to varnish it, however I have painted the back of the bowl a bright fuchsia pink and signed it. This piece of artwork, painted on a wooden bowl will be up for sale within the next couple of days on my Etsy page.

A close up for the flowers…

I have enjoyed doing this painting as it is the first for a while without feeling under pressure to create. I have a couple of new canvases I am hoping to do similar pieces on in the next few days!



Poosac; Artist of the Week

I love these little quirky and unusual illustrations and creations by Poosac on Etsy. Ever since I saw her wonderful greetings cards with balloons on, I always go back to look for more! Here are a couple of pieces from her that I especially like.
