For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to have my artwork printed onto items that can be used every day.
I've also always dreamed of having my own little shop, and even though its not one that's made of bricks and mortar and has a bell that tinkles every time someone comes inside, my little online shop has had a lot of love, (and blood, sweat, tears and the occasional sweary word!) poured into it.
It shall be open on Monday 22nd October, so I thought that this could be a good time to show you the wares that I've been working on, (hope that's okay!)
The 'Passing Storm' cushion has been printed with one of my original paintings (on both sides,) and is a generous 60 x 60 cm.
All of the items for sale have been made and printed in the UK.
The 'King Of The Magpies' pouch is also printed on both sides, and is perfect for all those bits and bobs.
The 'Mrs Whipple' tote bag is printed on lovely sturdy cotton fabric, I'm so happy with the quality of the artwork reproduction.
There is also a special edition 'Scrips and Scraps Scampering Hares' stationery set that includes writing paper, note-let cards and a notebook.
I really enjoyed designing and co-ordinating all the bits and bobs for the set...I'm becoming quite obsessed with stationery design!
There is also a set of art cards, all reproductions of my drawing-collages.
The cards can also look quite fetching in a frame if you wish.
And finally are my sets of little notebooks, I picked some of my favourite colours for my stationery designs, I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed myself designing these!
I do hope that you didn't mind me showing you these, I didn't want this post to look like a giant advert, but I'm really excited that everything's coming together after months of work!
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
