Folded and cut out wedding invitations


My friend sent me a lovely anniversary card this week which gave me the idea to use more unusual folds and cut-outs in my invitations and this is the result. The lilac was inspired by a beautiful old lilac tree that grows in our front garden.

New home illustration

New illustration for new home cards, done by hand and then coloured in Photoshop. Struggled to think about how mice would carry luggage then decided the poor dears would have to strap it to their backs! http://www.pinkshoesart.com/

Can you guess how this one works? It's a photograph of St James' Church in Grimsby - manipulated using bleach spray and tissue paper - www.pinkshoesart.com/photography

It's just the sun rising!

This morning's juice glass reminded me of the sun coming up!
