since I posted anything!
We are still trying to tackle the garden of this beautiful house that we moved into last year, so whenever there has been a lovely day, I’m out there, if not weeding, then sunbathing 🙂
I managed to finish a small Snowy Owl, he’s still available on my etsy shop by the way.
I may not have made very many birds but tried a few new techniques. I know that my work, especially the larger pieces can be quite expensive so I really wanted to make some more affordable pieces but still retain the artistic and unique elements of my work.
I played around with fabric paints, there was a disaster which went in the bin, then a lovely robin, which gave me a little more confidence.
Then I tried a flamingo, a lot smaller than the usual ones and bloody hell that was tricky doing that neck and beak! He’s ended up as a giveaway prize as although he’s lovely, I didn’t feel as though I could charge anyone for him…
Then another Robin but this time with some embroidery elements, taking it back to my embellished birds.
And the most recent one, a Blue Tit!
Both of these birds are available on my Folksy shop 🙂
I’m not sure where I’m going next. It’s really hard to get motivated at the moment with so much else going on. It’s a strong consideration to wind the business down at the moment as well. Registering as a sole trader, having to do those bloody tax returns takes a lot of joy out of creating for me and am entering CBA (Can’t be Arsed) mode again.
I’m such a child! LOL.
Have a great weekend!
