a little bit of spring

I've been experimenting lately. I love corrugated recycled brown card. So I tried watercolouring on it. Very different techniques to traditional watercolouring, but I enjoyed it!

I needlefelted this little robin, with inspiration from Ola Smith and Middle of Nowhere.
And I made several postcards using hand made rubber stamps. Gennine has wonderful tutorial on her blog. The first is made from lots of stamps I'd made before, all together in a sort of colourscheme. The strawberries postcard was for my Mum, the stamp was originally used to make writing paper for her for Christmas.

My submission for the IF topic 'Breezy'. Great sailing weather is a strong and steady breeze! This is a bit of a re-attempt of a previous topic, Sail. I was happy with the first trial but thought I could do the idea a lot more justice. I'm really pleased with how this one has turned out! I worked from a photo to help with the lighting, and think that made a lot of difference. I've been trying to develop my watercolour skills so before and after attempts at a similar theme give me chance to look at my progress. Let me know what you think :o)


This is a creative outlet for me, somewhere I can put some of my artwork for myself and others to see. Please feel free to leave comments, I love to hear them!
