100 days of Collaged Birds

I decided to give the Hundred Day project another go this year, setting myself the challenge of a 100 days of birds. Follow along each day with me on Instagram

We are already on day 9 and so far I am managing to create something each day. Fingers crossed I can keep that up!!

New ideas......

Recently I thought I would try mocking up some enamel mugs, I have also sampled a couple with the thought that I may stock some in my Etsy shop,  I'm not sure they are completely right, so think I need to look around a little more for other printers. Any thoughts most welcome!

Something Blue!

I suddenly realised a whole month has gone by and I haven't posted anything here. I often wonder do people still look at blogs! Anyway I have been busy working on things that I cant show but as that now gradually comes to an end I have managed to squeeze in some more personal work.

A couple more.....

This week I added a three more designs to my tea towel collection. You can find them over at my shop on Etsy-oneappledesigns
I also still have a few Alphabet posters left. Every sale at the moment comes with a couple of Christmas cards.

Tea Towels

Somehow my blog is always the last one to be updated.
Anyway I finally got around to having a small print run of tea towels printed and they are now in my Etsy Shop, more designs will also be coming in the following weeks. Its always exciting to have some real life products in my hands rather then always seeing images on my screen.

Birdies

From all my sketchbook birds from the last couple of weeks, I developed a pattern. I'm going to create some greeting cards to go with it, as somehow I thought it may make a good gift wrap.


I also started to put together another one that involves dried seed heads and warbler type birds.

Birds

I recently rediscover my Old Hamyln Guide to British and European Birds from my childhood and have set about making a few studies in my sketchbook of various beautiful specimens.

September

The start of a new month and new school years for my sons. Looking forward now to getting back into a routine and getting stuck back into work again.

Here is a page from my sketchbook from last week that I created into a pattern. Thinking of making it into a tea towel.

Catching up!

Its been a while and my poor blog is a little neglected but with all the social media things it is very hard to keep them all ticking over.
This year we were away for three week and I tried to keep a snipping sketchbook for as much of the time as it was possible.
Anyone who is over on IG will of seen most of them, but for the folks that haven't here are a few of the images that I snipped!

Garden Florals

Part of my 100 day project was to snip some flowers that I found around my tiny city garden.
I really enjoyed this part of the project as I love plants and flowers, so I tried to match the textures and colours as much as possible. If you fancy checking out a few more you can see my day to day bits and pieces over on Instagram.
The 100 day project is now at an end with only a couple of days left, its had its highs and lows but I am of course very happy to have reached the end of the process.

A special meet up.

A few months ago I met up with the lovely Carmen from a Traveling sketchbook,  she is creating a sketchbook as she follows her passion for travel and meeting people.
You can read all about our saturday afternoon tea and snips over on her blog.
After reading her blog I really do think I should update my profile picture very soon!

The lovely photos were taken by Anne Neijnens

A few pups from my 100 day project!

The hundred day project is now on its final stretch and after lots of procrastination I decided just to do random 1/2 hour snips. This week was all about pups and kittens.

One of your five a day.

Very happy that I managed to scan these all in and put them together.
Not sure if I prefer it on the white or dark background people seem to have different options!
