Firstly a big thank you to all that stopped by the stand at the Nottingham wedding fair.

Had a great day with my friend Fran Cropper, of July Designs, who’s pictures are amazing, check them out here. We met some lovely people and received some lovely comments.

More Letterpressing


As well as creating some business card tags I also utilised the press to try out a small card design I had been playing about with. 


I have done a limited edition of prints which I intend to take to the wedding fair with me next weekend, hope you like them!

Hot Bed Spring chap-book

 

In my efforts to utilise my letterpress skills, I spent the weekend at hot bed press with the wonderful Graham Moss of Incline press. We set to work making a 10 page chap-book, with short texts and illustrations. I met some lovely people, got more established with type and have become much more confident with the press. You can view the outcome of our efforts below.

little man designs getting back to it's routes


Little man designs originated as a tag for t-shirts made by my partner, before being utilised for our handmade Christmas cards and now my other paper creations, so it seemed apt that we spent an evening paper cutting transfer paper to create this t-shirt for a friends stag weekend.

Exciting times


My order of services for our friends wedding in May, all packaged up and ready to go! Not long to go now! Hope they are really happy with them.

On the news front I've been offered the chance to display my creations at a wedding fair in Nottingham next weekend with a friend from July Designs. Bit nervous but it will hopefully be a great chance to showcase my work, meet some lovely people and see if I can get more commissions to keep me busy and my creative juices flowing!

The fair is at Nottingham's Council House next Sunday 17th from 11 - 4 and is free, so hope to see you there!

Inspirational finds

 
I just had to show off this lovely bowl by Bethan Myfanwy Jones, I came across after an impromptu visit to the Royal Exchange. As part of their 'upcycled' exhibit, the beautiful cast porcelain bowl references Manchester's past using waste cotton as a decorative tool into clay.
I love the delicate nature of the bowl and the thread running through it, and the colours are very me!

Happy Mothers Day!

 
 
I've been doing some drawings of my paper flowers and decided to do a bit of 
experimenting, etching my drawings onto Perspex plates to take prints from. 
I'm still playing but here are some of the finished results. 

 
I really love the big rose and so made into a card for my mum. Love you mum!!

Paper and Hens

Have been a bit lapse again but have lots to say so will be updating the blog over the next few days...
 
I have been very busy working on wedding stationary for our friends who are getting married in May, designs to be revealed shortly. A successful design consultation last friday was followed by a very successful and wonderful hen do. Nicola had given me the sweetest card with ducklings on for my hen so in theme I made Nicola a little card with a hen and her chicks.


 Roll on the wedding, very excited!
