Hello everyone!! I hope you are well and enjoying the very first days of a new decade!!
I didn’t make any New Year’s resolutions this year as I think every day should be a opportunity for newness!
Can you imagine how good it feels to wake up in the morning and step into a new you? So that by bed time you have become a slightly better version of yourself?
That one step can be a great journey all of its own.
Maybe you have decided to start arting for the first time?
In this video I can show you how to use simple watercolor pencils to create some colourful bookmarks!!
I hope you have a go at making them and please do share them in the Facebook group!
I didn’t use references for my fishes but if you need some ideas to work from here is a link to a Pinterest search for colourful fishes
Hello again!! I guess its that time when we start decorating our homes with seasonal trinkets, garlands, trees with ornaments etc etc
I always wanted to make my own wreath and decided to try making one out of paper!
Everyone thought it was real!!
It looked so good that I decided to make a tutorial showing how I created it, if you have an electronic paper cutter such as the silhouette cameo then this tutorial is perfect for you, and you can also cut the leaves etc by hand!
I hope you enjoy this tutorial and I look forward to seeing your creations!, please feel free to post them up on my art group here
Hello! I hope you are all enjoying your Saturday and welcoming those cosy autumnal days? It can be the best time of the year, a time of change..
Today I would like to share with you some of my paper designs that are in fact gift boxes! I began creating these when I got my Silhouette Cameo paper cutter which I love dearly.
It inspired me to design paper cutting templates and fuelled a desire to start collecting paper.. I now have shelves and boxes full of exquisite patterned paper and high quality crafting papers.
I create the templates in Adobe Illustrator and the Silhouette Studio Designer software, these are then exported as vector SVG files which can be downloaded by other paper crafters who cut them on their personal machines.
They can be filled with goodies and used as display pieces, I hope you enjoy them :)
Hello everyone!! I hope you are well?
I’ve been fairly busy prepping a few new projects and creating content for Social October, you can view this on my instagram here!
Over the weekend I decided to create a paper animation featuring a horse from one of Muybridge’s famous photography experiments!
I started by cutting the horse shapes using my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine
I then created a basic grid on card and lined up the images whilst filming them on my camcorder.
I then created the animation below in my editing software.
I hope you like it!
What did you do over the weekend, anything creative?
Please share your projects!!!
Hello! It’s September already! Whoosh that was quick, I hope you all had a great summer and spent lots of time by the sea!! I know I did!!
In celebration of all things Ocean! this months Art For Your Screens features a gorgeous Sea Nymph or Nereid.
She mostly spends her time swimming around the rivers in our capital cities, enjoying the sites and sounds of human urban life whilst remaining unseen, but at times she yearns to see the sea and would love for you to help her get to it…
That is her back story… so cute!! lol
You can down load the file to your collection here
Its always nice to change the displays up once in a while to keep things looking Fresh!!
Watch me make my Kudu antelope paper wall art piece!
I created this cutting file template a few years ago as part of my Nubian Treasures SVG cutting template for electronic paper cutters found here
In this video I show you how to assemble it for yourself.
Hello! I hope you are well?
Today I have made for you a video showing how to assemble my London ‘Skyline Box’ paper cutting template.
I made this cutting template when I first got my lovely Silhouette Cameo cutting machine, which is still going strong!
I produce assembly instructions for all my downloadable templates but I thought a video would be a great addition, please view it below.
You can find the paper cutting template file here
