Keeping it local Popart canvas prints

I have been looking at new suppliers to my createmypopart range of prints and canvases.

I recently came across a local company that just specialises in canvas printing and mounting, so I thought I would order some samples to see how good they were. I received my canvases back today and just delighted with them!

The colours are vivid (quite an important aspect of popart style) and the quality of canvas and frame is noticeable. Really chunky wood and finished off well. They also have an excellent turnaround time and most of all they are local, which always makes me feel good about supporting small, local business. I spoke to the lady there who does the framing and she told me they also do acrylic prints, which could be an interesting product to work with and add to the range.

I am so glad I found these printers as I have been comissioned to design a 20×20 inch canvas poster as a 40th birthday present, so I want it to be as perfect as can be!

Instant gratification

I recently found some pretty scrapbooking paper I never got around to using which was just sitting idle. So I thought what can I do that is quick and easy and doesn’t require any additional resources?

Voila! Origami paper boxes. I am loving making these and can see potential in using all kinds of different paper, cards and materials. Have no idea what I would use them for, but they just look really pretty!

In case you were wondering, the oranges were put to good use too!

Princess Doodle logo

I was commissioned to design a logo for a new babies and girl’s accessories company. My brief was to use pink and lots of it.

During the conceptual stage, the client did ask for the ‘princess’ to be in lowercase, but I held my designer ground (stamped my foot) and I think the uppercase works well against the lowercase ‘doodle’.

I am really pleased with the final result. I also came up with ‘Princess Pea’ who is going to be used as a company mascot. Yay!
