Sorry for the radio silence, it's been a productive couple of weeks.
The appearance of the sunshine and summer flowers in my garden has given me a little creative buzz of excitement, so I've been going with it whilst it's here and putting it to good use. Alongside a lovely stack of commission work, I've been working on a couple of new products for my Etsy & Folksy shops. Taking inspiration from the garden, for a while now I've been wanting to do a collection of field guide posters. I know its not a new concept...but as Frankie said, I wanted to do them 'My Way!' using every colour in the box and an abundance of beautiful flowers and creatures...
I love those glorious Victorian & Edwardian seed packets with their indulgent botanical illustrations on the front, like this one: https://uk.pinterest.com/pin/49610033370346341/
That is what I had in my head when I set to work on my posters. My aim was a hybrid of classic field guide posters with a bit of those seed packet designs done in my natural hand/style....
Here they all are, arrived fresh from the printers yesterday. I couldn't be more pleased with the finish - the colours are clear and bright and paper is thick and smooth...
The prints are up and listed on both my Etsy and Folksy shops here:
Etsy: British Birds Poster
Wild Flowers Poster
Folksy: British Garden Birds Poster
Wild Flowers Poster
What's more, I am delighted to be able to offer them wholesale...
Over on the wholesale section of my website I have added a new mini collection of wholesale prints and planners which are all ordered directly from me. My wholesale greetings cards and gift wraps are still ordered and fulfilled by my Cornish friends at ArtEco Designs, but these posters, prints and planners will be personally handled by me. I hope to be adding more to this little collection soon.
