Felt Giraffe Card

We recently celebrated my youngest niece's 3rd birthday! I felt like stepping away from typical designs for a 3 year old girl, and create this funky giraffe!

I love the neutral colours, and that it is touchy feely with felt, googly eyes and some stitched details.

I find circular hole punches a great way to add a fun and simple background to a card, without overwhelming the primary design! Here, I used a 1" punch and a 2" punch.

Grandmother's Buttons

If you follow me on Facebook, you may recognise the colour inspiration for this canvas, which I shared last month!

When going through my Nan's button collection recently, I came across these beautiful magenta, lavender and turquoise buttons tied together by a piece of yellow cotton. I love the combination - the button colours coordinate well, and I like the jarring sensation of the tiny amount of yellow!

You can see here I included a tiny amount of yellow, and I think it worked :)

There is also a sparkly shimmer made with pearl dust going across areas of the canvas - one just has to catch it in the right light!

As always, the print is available here, and do contact me if you are interested in owning the original painting, or for more information.
