Flowers in her hair...


Its been a week since I last bloggy blogged, which would suggest I've been a little remiss on the creative front but the opposite is true!! I've actually been forging ahead putting plans into action that have been long in brewing..just waiting for the right amount of courage and a spoonful of money :)
blurry beginnings...
setting the foundations...
Now to focus on the details...
And like the girl with" flowers in her hair" my life is such a work in progress too...but I am having the MOST exhilarating time watching how it unfolds! :)
I've gone and bought myself a fandoogly printer! A snazzy super duper one that prints off the most loveliest recreations of my creations...I can't really believe I've gone and done it (especially when I've got about 4 paintings to print!)..but I did!
And my whole body buzzes with the sheer excitement! Seriously..someone may need to scrape me off the ceiling! :)
So there will a celebratory giveaway print thingy as soon as the envelopes arrive....!
Meanwhile I'm celebrating in "paint party" style which is really the best place to go and be surrounded by loooovely beautiful people who love to partaaaay ..come with me and join in! x

  1. I am just in love with your creations. The girls are always so wistful and whimsical and the settings so dreamy!!

    Now, please do tell what kind of printer you got as mine just doesn't cut the mustard when it comes to printing anything that isn't on bog standard printing paper!! I would love one to print off good quality greeting cards and on watercolour paper so please share the joy of this wondrous printer of yours!!

  7. Your works are so beautiful. I am drawn to the circles and flowers and how simple the shape of the girl is. It allows me to fill in voids with my own take or imagination. You are quite creative. Thank you for sharing the WIP steps as well. Happy PPF!

  21. True story. I was admiring your painting (before I read your words) and thought to myself - go see if she's selling this as a print in her Etsy shop. So, I went along and you weren't... then I read that you're making prints!! Serendipity - send me the link once it's up and I'll buy one!

  39. Hi Jenny. Thanks for the info on the printer. I checked my and I also have an Epson Sylus Photo-RX500. Mine is pretty good too. I'll have to check your printer out at the Epson center. Thanks for letting me know. Have a great week.

  40. Love the process on this one, the sketch and the large swatches of color, then more layers....gorgeous little flower mandalas! Such vibrant colors. How cool, I just splurged on an Epson Stylus and have about a gazillion things I want to print...as soon as I figure out how to use it (I'm not that techy). Have fun, and can't wait to see what you create!
