New Stuff…

I’m busy working on a new project that will be revealed soon…ish. Well, not soon. Sometime.  In the meantime, I’ve made a few new things, had some things made, and drawn lots of silly things.

You can keep up with all my nonsense on Twitter or Instagram…this sort of thing:

I’ve had lovely teatowels screen printed:

And made a couple of illustrations for Inkology.co.uk

Animals in Jumpers…Free Colouring Sheet to Download

This week I’ve been drawing animals in jumpers…

…using pen, coloured pencil and watercolour pencil.  I thought they would make fun brooches..

I’m going to use the images for prints and cards and a few other things. The brooches are available on my Etsy shop, BearsGetCrafty.  Also, as they I enjoyed colouring them in so much, I thought I’d share the fun… Click here to download the colouring sheet.

Printing on fabric with your inkjet printer.

Printing on fabric with your inkjet printer! I saw a tutorial for this on Pinterest. I was slightly dubious and concerned I would end up with a printer full of tangled inky threads, but I tried it anyway…

The fabric I used was cotton and fairly thin. It worked beautifully and I covered some notebooks. I’ll be experimenting with coarser fabrics as well.

I used images from my sketchbook which I scanned and arranged in photoshop, but you could draw your artwork at A4 and then simply scan and print.

Now I’m thinking about all the other things I can use this technique for…watch this space.
