Floral gifts and stationery

My friend Debbie is starting up a business selling flower arrangements in Brisbane. So I decided to design some floral stationery – you know business cards, letterhead, etc – using photos of her flower arrangements which I then painted over using the magic of digital software (love not cleaning up the mess). Here are the some of the results (check them all out here):

Here are the business cards:

Happy Mother’s Day

I have only just realised it’s Mother Day in the UK. So happy Mother’s Day to all you UK mums.

Here in Australia we, like the US and Canada, celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May. This seems to be the most common day around the world. To see what day a country celebrates Mother’s day, click here.

I love my mum, she is the best in the world. And my aspiration is to be just like her. Here are some designs I did just for her:

Loved shirt
Love Ma shirt
Dream come true card
World's Kindest Taxi Driver embroideredhat
World's best Mom card
Mother and baby whale mug

Spring is here (well Autumn Actually)

In the northern hemisphere spring has arrived. Here in Australia it is the end of summer, which is a shame as it has been very wet and no real warm weather. So I’m not ready for autumn (fall).

However I realize my main market is the northern hemisphere , the US to be precise. And you will be looking forward to spring.

So to celebrate here is a pretty spring design of cherry blossoms. A painting I did this time last year:

Photo of Baby Rainbow Lorikeets

I took these photos of two cute baby rainbow lorikeets after the rain. They landed on my deck and just started preening themselves. They seemed to be totally unaware of me. I felt it was a rare privilege to watch them and even rarer to be able to take these photos:

These photos were one of my inspirations to start up my Zazzle website Clareville and one of the very first series of designs I put on gifts.

Click here to look or click on the photos. On some gifts I was able to put a close-up of the feathers creating a wonderful colorful texture.

I would love to know your thoughts, so please comment below.
