Working on new small art brooches and packaging on the kitchen table

This week is half term, the kids are relaxing, we have seen the Lego movie and consumed some valentine’s chocolate’s. And I have worked on new packaging for my small art brooches and clay necklaces. This seems to be a constant process for me, I’m always wanting to improve both the look and functionality of the packaging. I have learned that the presentation of my work is as important as the initial design and making. I have printed up two designs, both water colours, my work often falls into two styles, one I would describe as folk art in feel the other has a more kitsch or cartoon feel to it, I think the two designs cover these areas of my work quite well. I am also working on new brooch designs for spring. Now I just have to work out why the scanner on my printer has stopped working!! essential to get my new designs onto the computer for printing, Lunch and back to work now.

Getting ready for the new year ( a little late maybe but I’ve done a lot of thinking), I’m going through my sketchbooks and drawing up some ideas that I would like to use for prints, cards and maybe badges. But the heating has broken down again!! and I’m so cold I can hardly hold a pencil.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
