I have been really slack with my blog of late but I intend to make up for this soon. Although I haven't been blogging I have been busy making things to sell at my market stall and Pop Up Parramatta which is a really exciting artistic venture that has been set up in my local area. The way Pop Up works is that empty shop spaces are rented out to local artists for $25 a week, this rental goes on till the shop is actually leased again for commercial purposes. I have my work for sale on an ongoing basis at two of Pop Up's shops which is keeping me very busy, I am at last getting used to working with deadlines. I have also made some lovely new artistic friends through this program and have also started volunteering at one of Pop Up's shops, I am really enjoying being part of Pop Up and so happy that it's all so close to home.
I have always loved mini cards but until now haven't really had a go at making them. They are so simple and fun to make and I look forward to making many more. For these cards I printed out the pink flower scene several times and added different sentiments to the scene. I printed out the pattern on my PC and added the punched out flowers and bling to finish off. I added some of the flowers onto the card with adhesive dimensional foam to add some dimension to the cards.
