Well, they say there's a first for everything and while I have exhibited all over the country, this is the first time I have submitted work for selection and in a 'Art' Exhibition. In the past the exhibitions have been under the banner of Calligraphy or Lettering Art.
Saturday morning saw us getting up bright and early....well not so sure about the 'bright', this Pixie hates mornings :o) and heading off to Hull.
Submitting work is easy and painless, once you get over the colly wobbles of actually having your Lettering Art under the label of 'Is it art?'. The work is left for scrutinising and hopefully selection by the judges.
Only around 10% of the work is chosen and it's down to the judges and their preference on the day which pieces are chosen....so it's left there on a wing and a prayer and with a large sprinkling of Pixie dust in the hopes that either or both of mine and Steves work is selected. We've entered 2 pieces each, so, watch this space :o)
You can read more about the gallery at the following link
by simply clicking here if you are out and about in Hull, there are lots of Art Galleries and museums and this one is very much worth a visit.
It was a dull day, with lots of traffic so I took the liberty of taking the picture from here.....

I was contacted by a Bride and Groom that saw me at the Wedding Fair held during the latter part of last year and we decided that it would be my first job back....
The invitations were a simple design and the Bride and groom were sure in what they wanted. After seeing the website dedicated to my Wedding Stationery they decided on Cream Hammered Card, Cream Inserts, black lettering and a Rust coloured ribbon....
It started with a commission for a Baby Girls Birth Poster. These are prints which are personalised with the baby's name, fate of birth, weight and time of birth. Each one individual and unique. Along with the details the poster has a hand painted diamond pattern running through it.

I gave the client the choice of two finishes.....both contemporary. The first was a painted border with gold strands running through it.....
