Well, I can't quite believe that it's been a whole year since I started Glitter and Earth!
I still remember walking round the field with my dogs one misty morning contemplating what to call my 'brand'. I knew I wanted glitter in the title and something else.
The mist was very thick that morning (something that happens quite a lot in St Just) and so it was very nearly called Glitter and Mist! I finally decided on Earth though as it sounded grounding and also because I try to be environmentally conscious with the materials I buy.
I got to work on my logo in between Tabitha's needs and it came together surprisingly quickly!
I had made some stamps, which were great fun to carve out and simply played around with a few arrangements. Sometimes I wish I had put more colour in to reflect the vibrant nature of my work, but I like the earthiness of it. It also makes me feel quite nostalgic now, so I don't think I will be changing it for sometime.
This year has given me a lot of confidence and I have my lovely Facebook, Twitter and Instagram followers ( and the lovely Massofhair) to thank for that.
I have gone from being nervous about anyone liking my work, to knowing that people do! My mission is simply to find them!
My creativity has soared and I feel very lucky to be an artist. I'm learning all the time and I love what I do! Thank you for being part of my journey!
Well, I love challenges and special requests and I was asked to do a Mother's Day card featuring Fritz, this cute little dog!
I hadn't been asked to feature any pets with my fairies before, so I wasn't sure what it was going to turn out like, but I needn't have worried!
Fritz fitted in perfectly with my fairies and looked pretty cute with his own pair of wings!
I was then asked to do a picture of beautiful brown lab called Jessie, surrounded by hearts.
I decided to do a more portrait style for this card and I'm so happy with the results!
Now I am thinking that this is something that could be popular.
What do you think?
Would you like to see your pet with wings or in its very own fairy tale scene?
