A journey to water colour name prints
When I started sewing again six months ago and begun my adventures into Two Tiny Makes I did not expect to be heading off on a tangent painting water colour name prints.
It all started when I painted my Mum picture for Mothers Day, I loved the effect and wanted to do more.
I’ve plenty of friends with kids now so asked a few if they’d like their own. The challenge for me is to always improve and get better so by asking for ideas and prompts I can try new ideas. This is what we have for name prints so far:
We’re well into the ABC123Challenge now and for this I’ve been sketching and using water colour to create the alphabet each week. It was at week L I decided to go a bit more in-depth and start to paint a mini picture for someone each week based on what they like. It’s been fun and a great challenge, this is what I’ve come up with since;
When I had enough images I decided to take the plunge and open up my etsy shop to try to sell some of these personalised prints. A bit scary but life is to short for what if’s so my listings are live if you want to take a look?
Since launching I have had 2 custom orders and a competition prize to paint. It’s been an amazing start getting to paint something for someone I don’t know to a simple brief or colour scheme. The first two are the mini letter prints:
The 3rd is a wedding print and one I hope they’re too busy to spot on my blog as they get married tomorrow and this is a present. I don’t think they follow me though so it’s all good:
Please do take some time to visit my etsy shop. I have a special 50% off my mini letter sized prints for the month of May. At £4.99 inc postage you can get some personalised artwork made especially for you or a friend!
This has been a fun avenue to follow on my Two Tiny Makes journey. I do hope you are enjoying it?
