Flowers and swirls..


Good evening all
I had fun the last few days experimenting with something a little different for me!  Still with flowers, and still working with circles and dots, but in a different form.  These were such fun and therapeutic to make and I loved working with all the colours.  I will endeavour to make some more when I get time!

Inside my sketchbook....

Lately, I have been doing some sketching for new designs for prints and cards... Ive done some fish designs (the one below is just one design) and also some crazy looking owls... all lots of fun to create, but mostly I am looking at doing designs that aren't so girly/pretty, and may be more boy/male orientated....harder than it looks I can tell you!  I am trying so hard, but I am tempted to  throw in some pink or cutesy, girly thing (so easy to do 'girly') designs.... of course some will be just good for cards and others possibly for both greeting cards and prints.  I will have to see....Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  I use watercolours/ink and the look I am going for is simple with not necessarily perfect lines etc.  If you see anything you like in any of my post you can message me to order prints/cards on juliemryder01@gmail.com   A4/8 x 10 inch prints $18.00 plus delivery $4 Australia/$9 International.  A3 size prints $35.00 plus delivery $9.50 Australia/$18 International.
My cards are 5 x 7 inch (when folded), blank inside, packs of 3 are $15, packs of 5 are $25 plus delivery costs.

Watercolour fun....

I have been having such fun messing around with my watercolours/ink...I am trying out some new ideas (new background too) for prints and cards.  These are some that I have come up with.  I have handpainted and drawn all of these then manipulated them digitally.  I could fool around with photoshop for hours!!  Stay tuned as I might have these and others available soon.  They can all be made into prints and cards. (with or without words/quotes etc too).

BELOW:  This is my standard card design (5 x 7 inch when folded).  The front of the card is on the left and the back is on the righthand side (has a smaller picture plus info about me).



Below:  This floral cross is lovely for Christening cards/prints, Sympathy cards, Religious sacrament momento's and cards too.
