Ok, so , as of the last post here I have been creating SO many things but completely forgetting to upload them here!!
I've been dabbling in a lot of steampunk designs, not so many mandalas... Most of what I've created has gone to my portfolios over at Dreamstime or Red Bubble . I've also been busy organising a collection of my steampunk designs to be printed up and sold ... I'll pop up some pics once they're done! ...ok here's a sneak peek of one.... :)
..anyway... I hope this finds you well, and updating your own blogs more reliably than me... I'm looking forward to sharing photos of the finished products soon! ( assuming I remember that I have a blog to update !!! )
ps: did I mention that I Love creating steampunk designs!?! lol
Wow, I hadn't realised I've been neglecting my blog so badly!!! I've been busy over in my Faerie blog, and at Dreamstime ....and Pinterest...and probably ( definitely ) spending a wee bit too much time on Facebook!!!
Anyway, here I am...updating at last! I've uploaded some new Steampunk designs in my Dreamstime portfolio... I love switching between faeries and steampunk, occasionally dabbling with some mandalas and typography.... some of my favourite reasons to avoid housework!! lol
..I've been playing so much in my Faerie blog I almost forgot I had not-faerie-related one!!!
Just a quick post to share a cd cover I designed for a lovely blues singing lady Chris O. I've worked with Chris before as part of her day job, but this is her passion & I was so honoured to create this cover artwork for her!
...I love lovehearts! I uploaded the first version of this to RedBubble but ( of course ) wanted to keep playing with it a bit...I really wanted to stuff as much as I could into it without overcrowding it...
xx Mel ( wow, two posts in one week!!! Unheard of! lol )
In other matters...Life just keeps powering along , usually with a reasonable amount of calm. ( well, as much calm as you can expect when you have teenagers! ) . Every now & then it throws one of those unexpected curve balls our way that leave me looking like a stunned bunny. The occasional fireball also hurtles within inches, singeing my eyebrows & causing me to rethink my values! Looking back even over the last few years SO much has changed in my life and within myself . I think ( hope ) I'm becoming a little wiser as I get a little older....and I have to say I'm more comfortable being Me than I've ever been before. My creative expression is a Godsend ...I find so much peace & joy when I'm creating , whether that be in Photoshop or simply sitting down with a sketch book & pencil. It's my meditation & keeps me centred & connected .....I must be feeling a bit remeniscent & philosophical as it's my 45th birthday tomorrow!! lol
On that note...I'll sign off, wishing you all a wonderful day!
Thanks for popping in to my very neglected little blog!!
