Dancing Hares

I've got a real thing about hares, I just love them for some reason. This would be why they seem to end up all over my designs, I cant help it they just scurry on there and they wont budge!

Anyway I have got the latest Etsy offering up in my shop, my Paper Circuses are now available to the world at large, lets home some nice people want to give them good homes!...and what has this got to do with hares, well I couldn't resist doing a dancing hare circus.

I don't care if no one but me likes it, the one I made for the photos will sit on my little desk making my happy!

Finally, I have my shop up and running (I think?!), the test will come when someone wants to buy something. It was pretty easy and straight forward, nice and user friendly thankfully or I'd be really stuck!

Take a look and let me know what you think

Pigs in Bath

We live in Bath in the UK, it's a really beautiful Georgian city (for those who may not have been!), at the moment around the city we have a public art event going on called King Bladud's Pigs, basically we have around 100 life sized pig sculptures all around the town that have been personalized by local artist and designers. Each pig has been sponsored by a local business and will be auctioned of in October (if you want to know more here's the link to the official website)

I really love this idea, every time I go in to town I spot one I haven't seen before, I'm a bit sad they'll only be around till the end of summer, anyway here are some I hunted out today.

I think my favourite so far is this last one, hes so cute!
I'm also worried I am become a little obsessive about this and start trying to photograph them all!

I love paper sculptors, well any sort of 3d paper design is pretty cool in my book, I always love the idea that something that look's so intricate and complicated can be make out of something as simple and ordinary as a sheet of card.

These are the latest idea for my Esty shop (hopefully up and running in the next few weeks!) they are paper circuses, each one is design for a special occasion, Birthday, Wedding and New Baby. The idea is that if you wanted to send something a little more impressive that an ordinary card or if you were struggling to find a present for a special someone then these would be perfect.

They are all hand make my me, and the disk in the center spins round so you can see all the little illustrations, a small message can be written on either side of the flag on the top so you can put who its too and who its from.

I'm not sure how well these will sell but I'm going to give them a try and see how they go, hopefully I can add to the designs if they are popular.

Phew, finally I've got round to updating! Sorry its taken so long, mad, mad week last week leading to not much art work being done and lots of boring stuff like sorting my computer out and ordering from my card supplier!

Anyway this is a quickie update, hopefully there will be more photos tomorrow, the latest idea I'm playing around with is a small verse range with 3d butterflies.

I'll take some pic's tomorrow to demonstrate the butterflies better, the idea is the wings are die cut and pop put of the card, so it looks like they just landed on it, I'm pretty please with the finale look, lets hope they come out in the photos!

Up Date

Finally some quick photos so you can see the effect of the butterflies.
