Christmas is coming!

Seeing as there are only 45 days until Christmas (eeps!) I thought I would share with a you a project I was working on in February! Christmas comes very early in the design department at Usborne Publishing. As the masses are still full from mince pie overload, we begin working on our titles for next Christmas.
So here is the first in a series we are doing - First Stencil Cards Christmas. A box of 12 festive stencils cards specially designed for little children to use. These are great as stocking fillers, or maybe a pre-Christmas gift so they can get crafty and make their own Christmas cards and wrapping paper. A fun way to improve younger children's co-ordination and motor skills. These have been designed and illustrated by yours truly, each card has a little doodle of mine as an example to copy.

To buy, or find more information on these cards, you will find them here on the Usborne website.
Here is a very sweet review of the cards by First4Dads
We have two more titles in this series to pre-order. Will post more details and pictures when they are available. © 2011 Usborne Publishing Ltd

Super Screenprint Sunday 6th November

Elisabetta and I got creative in the kitchen again today. I did a little painting and we both did some screen printing. Elisabetta worked on a Christmas card design and I did a little of this and a little of that! I painted some Christmas decorations that I may give as Christmas cards, and also finished off an autumnal screen print I started last week. Not sure how I feel about it but it's another one to add to the collection and sell I guess.

Elisabetta's sweet Christmas card design. Hope she gives me one!

We swapped #superscreenprintingsunday for #superpumpkincarvingsunday last weekend. I went for a Day of the Dead theme and Gaz got creative with a Sainsbury's bag!! Check out his spooky owl below.
