I've had 2 lots of place cards to make for two separate brides and added to that I've had a full Wedding order to do. More about the place cards later.
Karen loved the foiled cards and wanted something plain and simple, with the only remit being... 'Hot Fuchsia Pink' ....
I obliged, but after looking at them from a design point of view and the name of 'Richard' having 2 ascenders, the design itself looked a little bit.... errrr unbalanced....So, we decided to introduce a butterfly theme into the design.... MUCH BETTER don't you think?

We were invited to a wedding of a long time friend of mine the following week and I decided that the design would make a great personalised Wedding Card.....
What do you think?

The concertinas always invoke an element of surprise when opened, if the recipient has never seen one before.

I love making cards....and especially for family members that I know will appreciate them. I drew the design using a 0.8 fine liner pen, before scanning them and dropping them into a card template which I already have set up on my computer.
Once printed I then foiled them using holographic foil, which catches the light and casts wonderful rainbows around the room.
The card was then painted using water soluble brush pens and then shaded by adding water.
I just love the orange and warm sunshine yellows of these pens and WOW! What a difference a bit of colour makes

I try to take a long and well earned rest over Christmas, as it's so hard to take time off during the Sumner as it usually co insides with Weddings and well attended Craft Fairs.
Hopefully, this year, I'll be even more focused and there's lots of plans and ideas in the pipeline.
It's always hard when you offer, not only a service, but items for sale and with Calligraphy and Lettering Art the products are many and varied which can lead into some confusion as to what exactly 'we do'.
The little hearts above are part of my Power Doodle Range and for part of the decoration to my motivational and inspirational art prints. Originally started as a little bit of fun and a way of clearing my mind from the more formal and mundane jobs we get to do, but they then developed into a little bit of an obsession. They are not only fun but colourful too and bring a little bit of sunshine to the walls of the Gallery.
So, today, I'm back in the studio and it's business as usual. I'm looking forward to meeting new clients and working on fresh ideas.
I woke to the morning sunrise, something I haven't seen for quite some time. The days are already starting to lengthen and Spring is just around the corner.
I'm planning on getting my act together this year and really sorting out my Inspired by Script website, it's long overdue and looking a little bit jaded. The problem with websites is that they take so much time and commitment and mine has been badly neglected.
I'm also going to add other creative things to this blog. Art pieces that I have done for myself, experimental pieces and items and articles from other creatives. Not everything you see here this year will be for sale. Hopefully, this will make the blog more interesting for you, the visitors to my blog.
In the meantime, if you're visiting Northallerton, North Yorkshire at all this year, do pop in and say hello. It will be lovely to meet you.
We're looking forward to sharing the year ahead with you...
With the brightest of blessings for 2012, Sue xxx
