Bright and Beautiful Bollywood Goodies

With St Valentine’s day on the horizon, there are some bright and beautiful Bollywood designs available in both my Etsy store and on my own website which are ideal for the occasion.

I was lucky enough to get a mention in issue 68 of Papercrafter magazine. There are some gorgeous products in the kit which comes free with this issue, so if you like my bright designs you’ll love this. I hope it’s still available, or find out more about it HERE!

Off to Lilla’s Bootcamp!

I haven’t posted much for a while. No excuses other than working to pay the ever increasing bills takes up most of my time, sometimes working 6 days a week well into the evening. That, doodling, and catching up on several seasons of “Game of Thrones”.

I’ve signed up for Lilla Rogers “Make Art That Sells” BOOTCAMP. So for the next 6 months I’ll try and keep you updated on the new assignments I’ll be working on. If you can, follow me on either TWITTER, PINTEREST, INSTAGRAM or FACEBOOK where I’ll be posting more updates.

Cute and Funky Halloween Designs on Etsy

My funky halloween designs for card making, scrapbooking and all your halloween party makes are now available in my Etsy store.

These funky cupcake wrappers are my favourites and haven’t been available for a while!

Also available: my fun Mish-Mash Monster Cupcake Toppers and 1 inch and 1.5 inch circle collage sheets. These are great for making bottle cap pendants, badges, stickers, magnets and much more.

Little White Book of Surface Pattern Designers 2nd Edition

Last year, fellow Art and Business of Surface Pattern  graduate Gill Eggleston had a fabulous idea to start an online directory of surface pattern designers which was the first online resource for surface pattern designers.

This year, The NEW, IMPROVED AND UPDATED Little White Book of Surface Pattern Designers 2nd Edition has gone live and is now available to view on  the FIND NEW DESIGNERS website. The 2nd Edition features over 150 worldwide designers. I’m very proud to be listed amongst them. Find me on page 143.

Thanks to Gill Eggleston, Miranda Mol  and all those who helped with the project for all their hard work and dedication putting this very useful resource together. The Second Edition has been a pretty mammoth undertaking for Gill and she’s done a wonderful job.

New Pattern Collections

Last year, during the Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design course, I spent so much time drawing, doodling and getting creative and inspired in my sketchbook. Since then I’ve been busy here there and everywhere with freelance work. So this weekend, I was feeling inspired and I picked up some of those sketches and made some new pattern collections. Here’s a sneak peek at just a few of them. There are plenty more in my portfolio:

From the
Candy Carousel Collection

Deco Geometrics Collection
