I ordered Lilla Rogers new book before Christmas and it arrived this week - yipee! It's just what I needed to spur me on. It's uplifting, lighthearted, motivating, to the point and practical without being heavy going. Visually it's a delight of course and its FUN. Something I need :) I particularly love the tiny tarot at the end which I've already made my own version of and put in a pot I made at ceramics class years ago!
I carved out some time for myself not doing my hand painted orders (you do need a break sometimes!) to play. Ages ago I'd painted a yellow background on wood and a few coloured circles. I saw it lying on the side in the studio and decided to play with it adding more to it.
This led to designing a card for a friend with it.. and then I did another and put it in my Etsy shop inkpaintpaper.
Next I painted a couple of small background patterns, sketched a rabbit baby and designed some new baby cards.
One set large and personalisable (available at Moobaacluck on Notonthehighstreet.com) the other two are smaller simply with "It's a girl!" and "It's a boy!" on the front. Find them in my Etsy shop too.
Hope you like them! And thank you Lilla :)
