Swan prints...

Swan Scarf - Blue

Swan scarves are finally available, hurrah!

I have been trying to get this scarf print finished for what seems like an eternity and last week I was finally able to launch them in the shop...if you didn't see, they are available HERE!

The back of the scarves are covered in tiny stars while the fronts have a smattering of stars and the swans paddling over the top...As usual they are available in two colours: White swans and peach stars on royal blue, and dark grey (black) swans and red stars on cream.

I hope you like them!

A job I love

I do love a good wedding. All that lurve in the air, the gathering of friends from afar, the dancing, cake, merriment and afternoon champagne sipping, canap├ęs (whenever else do you get to eat those?!) confetti and the general warm fuzzy happiness that a lifetime coupling brings is such a delight!

I also L O V E making wedding invitations and was honoured recently to be asked by some a lovely pair of long known friends to make the invitations for their forthcoming wedding. They came up with a beautiful idea of the snow globe based on my 'Forever' painting, but with little geometric shapes dancing inside and a fun colour combination of pale blue, bright orange and white and I designed and hand screen printed them.

I have always loved the ability with screen printing to put pale colours onto a darker background so was pleased to be working with my favourite hairy manila card again which I had for my own invitations...

After making a few invitation designs now, they are another string I would like to add to my bow. If you are interested in commissioning some please do get in touch...lets discuss!

More of them there swans...

I hope everyone is getting to enjoy some of this beautiful weather we have been having the last week or so...it actually feels like summer, right? For the first time in ages. How long it will last, who knows but for now it's G L O R I O U S!

I have been busy designing more new things and playing with a new textile design featuring those swans I have been so obsessed with of late. It's going to be available on two different coloured scarves very soon and I am looking at making new home wares with some of the existing print designs of horses, birds, big cats and now the swans. I am thinking cushions and more tea towels to start with...watch this space peeps, watch this space...

Here is a peek at the new design pictured while drying in the sunshine!
