new giclee prints

I have been busy creating range of giclee prints. Its been fun to get going on my project, I have been trying to do this for ages, but life just keeps getting in the way. Here's a sample of some. I am hoping to start my Etsy store today and start uploading my work. Hope it goes well. xo

screen printed cushion

This little cushion was hand screen printed from one of my original designs. Looks nice against the Marimekko fabric along the fireplace.

one day these might be tea towels

Here is are some little designs I created last year... when I was looking into screen printing tea towels. (top 4 greeny ones) Well it never got off the ground but I found them in my files and thought I might make them into prints anyway...once I get my gocco! The square ones are cushion designs. Again, sadly they never happened....I had trouble sourcing fabric and screenprinters in Melbourne. I guess I'm not as good at web searching as I thought!

a little holiday by the sea...

So we recently spent a week in Torquay. It was lovely and relaxing, but unfortunately the weather wasn't so flash. Our little boy still had a ball playing in the sand everyday! Oh, and a nice photo I took of a galah. Will make a nice print or pic one day when I get a minute to create it. Been feeling a bit overwhelmed since we got back last week. Work is busy, busy... which is great but can take its toll when you have a nearly 2 year old and a pregnancy !!! I am 20weeks, half way. It's speeding by......... x

5 4 3 2 1... blast off!

Our little one loves his rocket canvas print in his room. This is the original sketch we created, but I am madly saving up for a gocco printer, so I can start printing again. It's been too long since I was printmaking and I am looking forward to this new way (for me) of making my own prints at home!

beautiful colours

How beautiful are these bowls? Such lovely colours and textures.

Nice tea bag

Hi. Welcome to olivemoon, my space to fill with wonderful things I've found. This little tea bag was given to me by a friend a few years ago, as she knew I'd like the design. Can't remember what the tea was like, oh well.
