Summer...


Hello!

The image above sums up the summer for me because it is a peep at work in progress of a new collection of greetings cards coming soon called 'Home Is...' 

This summer has mostly been a delicate juggling act of entertaining our two girls whilst working on this new range.  With this particular design, the first has directly inspired the latter!...


Here's another little peep at how this collection is shaping up.  I'll be able to reveal all in September.  This collection will be available as wholesale greetings cards through my friends at the publishing company, more details are available on the Trade section of my website.  

I am also steadily releasing some of the designs as illustration prints, two if which, 'I'm In Charge' and 'Energy Saving Mode' are already listed on all my online shops (website, Folksy and Etsy)....


Of course it's not all been about work.  There have been plenty of days out, new experiences, birthdays to celebrate and fun to be had these past few weeks....


Whilst out and about there have been a few sightings of my cards in shops, like this one in Waterstones...


On the whole, it's been a laid back summer with plenty of sunny days to enjoy.  
Which has kept me nicely inspired and alongside working on the new greetings card range I've been tinkering with patterns, mostly on a summery theme.  

I have plans to develop some new patterns for gift wrap and fabrics so am steadily building up a stock of new designs to eventually add to my Spoonflower shop...


Starting with this one called 'Wild Strawberries'.  This design is already listed on my Society 6 shop so is available on all sorts of things from totes to t-shirts...


I also began playing with this 'Kingfisher' design, inspired by a watercolour painting I did earlier in the year...


It began as a simple line arrangement which I always intended to colour up.  Once I saw the line drawing, I knew I had to save that version too as I think this will make a nice version for fabrics when I come to order Spoonflower & Print Me Pretty samples soon...


Meanwhile, the colour version is already available on all kinds of everything over at my Society 6.


I hope you are all enjoying summer too!

Best wishes

Angie
