new depths

Pen and Instagram, including app #abeautifulmess
I don't often edit my work later, keeping drawings and illustrations as natural as possible (I enjoy the textures and originality, mistakes and wobbly lines) but the new app from the bloggers at A Beautiful Mess adds beautiful additions to photographs. Elsie and Emma have wrapped up the stylised 'hand drawn' trend with pastel tones and delicate frames for any of your photographs. Share your edited image onto Instagram and you can easily turn a simple photo into a wonderful, profesionally vintage final image.

A happy customer

Completly forgot about these photos -
An old skull embroidery sitting comfortably at home in a customers front room.
The vintage fabric that I've used to embroider the red skull, compliments the decor so well. I'm extremly pleased that one of my first embroidery sales (way back in 2011) went to such a good home!
