i created these pieces a while ago for someone who is no longer in a position to use them so i have decided to turn them into etsy prints and greeting cards if any one would like them.
i have used a combo of painted paper and vintage fabric from my stash of table cloths !

swans a swimming

these 2 pieces are ones that i started last year and just wasn't sure about,
i unearthed them today and thought, hmmm  maybe if i finish them...
and here they are, i can't decide which is nicer a black or white swan, we have a couple of black ones living in one of our bays, they really are beautiful birds.
i think i will make these into etsy prints and offer them as cards to one of my clients who are waiting for a range from me.

new fruit and veg store craft kit

yippee i'm back!
and i am so thrilled with the first in a series of little 3d shops i will be creating as craft kits for my etsy shop and for you to make up and collect.
they can be displayed on a shelf or hung up (which i love)
the first in the series is a fruit and veg store. it has a 3d awning and shop sign and 2 little flags blowing in the breeze.
in my world all shops would be this joyful, i'd enjoy shopping alot more!
i will be adding the next one in a few weeks.... hmm... i think it might be a fashion boutique!

the lass walking her doggy is a new etsy print!
don't you love the retro 50's fabric i have used on her dress!
