Belated Happy New Year

Hello, lovelies. My computer broke down on the 23 December, and I’ve only just got it back! Not a lot to say at the moment, though, I’m gradually drifting into some of my projects. As usual, I’ve entered the Shift Art free digital art challenge. I’m a bit rusty so the outline of the girlContinue reading “Belated Happy New Year”

Creative summer round-up, some new art and a free branding kit for you

My brand new eBook Haven’t been posting here much lately as I’ve been writing an eBook….woohoo! Talk about tiring, but satisfying. I’m not a writer so it was quite difficult for me.

Have you ever seen the film ‘Out of Africa’ with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford? Well, I’ve been working on a piece this week and for some reason it reminded me of this wonderful film!

Query about self-hosted wordpress site and some digital textures for you

Hello Blogger friends. I’ve just started a self-hosted site on wordpress (using the same url) as I wanted to expand on my articles and digital tutorials and wondered if anyone knows what happens to my blog here.

My creative weekend and creating a certificate of authenticity for artwork

Over the weekend I worked on a bit of art and also started creating a certificate of authenticity for my artwork. When you print and sell an artwork it’s always good to include a Certificate of Authenticity and a thank you note when you send it to the buyer. Make sure it’s in your brandContinue reading “My creative weekend and creating a certificate of authenticity for artwork”
