Been a while...

I have not posted for a while been so sucked into this tattoo idea. Yes I have had a few wins but have worked for them....the ratio of winning when you see this screen shot is not that great, but I am hooked, worked with some lovely people,  from far away places, (learned some very helpful tools in illustrator  thank to a celtic knot) .  Working from home is also taking some getting used to time management etc. Busier now than ever ! 
Need to get back to Stick and Create....it looks like at Easter I will be running workshops  "Embellishing Textiles with CAD cut materials...."   more news on this to follow.May need to do some more stock/valentine stuff for Poppy Rose....
Upcycling and furniture thing is still also on the go but this is totally tied in with other people, should have some update in next couple of weeks as they have now got a shop....

Happy 2015!

A little late but been so busy now just to many things on the go I will have to let something go just not sure which one...Can I not make more hours on a day! First there was stick and Create and there still is but I have not come back to this ...got into tattoo designing as I thought it would help me draw more and create new work for decals. Wellllll that has been addictive, loving the briefs the challenges and the people, been drawing frantically, but  not a lot that can come across to my decals. Had two winners and a few invites which just fuel the obsession to draw!  Theres the upcycling ...a chair  pad/cushion lying behind me waiting for its cover. Trying  to tender to deliver some art workshops and today the new that  a bid for workshops at a college has been successful...oh lets not forget invigilation and a random scattering of support workshops.

Well writing this all down makes me see why there no time...and housework is running away. I am busier now than when I was working, big difference is there's  no pay cheque....but I am happy just hope i can make a go of this....

Some images, Its quite flattering to think someone will live with what you design for ever!
