Hi everyone. Dreaming on a Star is 1 year old! To mark this occasion I’m having a Buy 2 Get 1 FREE in my Etsy Printables Shop!
I have been adding loads of things to my shop – scrapbooking papers, clip art, washi tape, journal cards, gift boxes, stationery – All printable – All available as Instant Downloads! Read more…
Hi everyone. As you may know, one of my dreams is to have my own stationery range. I have my own Printables shop on Etsy, where I sell some printable notelets (amongst other things).
However, last week I made little notelets boxes for these notelets, and it really started to feel like proper stationery!
Hi everyone. I have been meaning to write this blogpost for quite some time! In March this year I signed my first licensing deal with Keka – makers of fabulous iPad & Kindle covers (and soon clip-on cases for smartphones).
Hi everyone. Welcome to No. 2 of The Spooky Chronicles – Spooky’s Hobbies, where I illustrate the funny habits and quirks of my pet bunny Spooky. Have a look at No. 1 here.
Hi everyone. Today I’d like to talk about Journal Cards and Project Life.
Recording your memories by journalling isn’t new and neither is keeping photo albums. You can also use scrapbooking papers to personalise your photo layouts. However, to get everything looking right and the way you want takes some time.
Becky Higgins came up with an idea to simplify all this. She calls it Project Life.
Hi everyone. As you may know I have a bunny called Spooky. She’s small and cute and lives indoors. She’s half Netherland Dwarf and half Lionhead. Since having her, I’ve learned a great deal about bunnies and their funny, quirky habits.
I’m going to illustrate their funny ways in a series of illustrations. This is the first one. Bunnies and their funny ears!
I hope you like them! ♡
Hi everyone. It’s Christmas in July! Wow only 149 days until Christmas! Have you started any preparations yet? I’m a Christmas nut – I love it. I love thinking about it all year long! Would you like to see the Christmas trends for 2013?
These images come from Christmas Trend Group.
I love this Christmas trend – Winterwalk. I am a big snow fan and love the turquoise, silver and white colour scheme. It’s wonderful to bring the snowy landscape into your home. Read more…
Hi everyone. I’ve entered the Lilla Rogers’ Global Talent Search. As you may now, Lilla is perhaps the most famous agent in the world. She represents some of the most well-known artists working today and I count several of her artists as my favourites.
Lilla launched a talent search in order to find her next artist. This and her Make Art that Sells course has attracted some of the most talented contemporary designers working today.
I entered because I am quite a fan of Lilla. I have her book I Just Like to Make Things. I am planning to do her course in October. I don’t think I will be her next big thing. I feel like I am still on a journey of discovery. But I know that by doing this brief, I will push myself and make a piece of art that I am proud of.
So the brief was a Journal Cover for Paperchase! I squealed with delight when I read this! Paperchase are my No. 1 Dream Client! (Have a peek at one of my Dream Designs for them.) Their stationery shop makes me want to do cartwheels in the aisles! It’s a smörgåsbord of delightful design! Read more…
