pea green necklace...


(girl with the pea green necklace)


I started this sometime last year and it just wasn't working so I filed it away for a while.  Well... I found it again a few days ago and had another try.   I am happier with it now, I think I was trying to add too much colour the first time.

I am so glad we are on our way into the New Year... I love Christmas (speaking of Christmas the present that still brings joy two weeks later seems to be the small tub of slime with fake eyeballs... every time it gets poured out there are squeals of eeewwww like it is a whole new experience and its grossness has never been seen before).  Anyway when Christmas is over I just want to get on with the New Year so I can use my new diary and start a new list book (I really really love stationery)!

I have always wanted to have some of my work on some stationery, cards, notepads, calendars etc... When I see the ones I make myself all lined up ready for an art market they just fill me with joy.  There is just something so satisfying in seeing the repetition of them for me.  But lately I have been thinking of approaching a real live stationery/card company to see what they think.   Soooooo... I yesterday I emailed a New Zealand card company to see if they would be interested in taking on some of my images to feature on their cards.  They don't get back from their summer holidays until 11 January so will let you know what they say (fingers crossed for me).
