I have been playing around with the idea of introducing some more paint and watercolour in my work. So I have officially started a journal, or as we used to call them at art school and uni, a visual diary. It sounds so proper though... visual diary. Too much pressure there, so I will stick to journal.
Here are some of the first entries in my journal. I can't stay away from the yellow and pink. There is something cheery and uplifting about these colours that I can't keep away.......
Might even have some finished pieces soon.

Something new. Yes, I am taking the plunge into some new art. Starting with some scribbles with ink and a dab or two of paint. Our home office has turned into a bit of a dump, since we moved into our new studio about a year ago. No fancy pants home office at our place, just a room full of left over work, random kids toys, an old printer, and lots of paper - magazines, bills, wrapping paper, you name it. So last weekend I cleared a space (home office re-vamp for another day) and set up a painting / creating space. Y A Y. F I N A L L Y, somewhere we can make mess. And I love the fact that every time I pull out the paint and start painting, the boys want to join in too. I would prefer that they stick to their own sheet of paper than wanting to add to mine, but hey, one step at a time!
Hopefully this new space will inspire some finished pieces soon. Fingers crossed! xxx

|Side Burn Cider|
It seems that everywhere I turn at the moment, I see Cider. Apple Cider, Berry Cider, a dash of Lime Cider. I've found a few that have interesting labels. Designing labels can be a great job to get, and even better when the client lets you have a bit of fun.
