Pens Pens Pens

Hello dear readers, I must apologise for such a long absence. And I didn't warn you either! For the last two weeks I have spent very little time at home due to circumstances I won't discuss in such a public place but now I am back and can focus on updating you all on what I have been doing.

Look!! The drawing on the left just happened on Saturday afternoon while I was working at LoveOne. I had been thinking of doing a design featuring pens for a new run of mini bags for Art on The Prom in Felixstowe on 30th August.

The drawing itself may also be included in the exhibition I am a part of at St Mary At The Quay in Ipswich 28th August til 6th September.

So the end of this month is going to be rather busy! I also start back at work on 1st September in the NEW college building!!

So here is the new mini bag design. A bit more refined than the original drawing because the more pens, the smaller the stencils and the harder it is to cut! I am rather pleased with it though. This was a very small run but I am already considering doing more in different colours.

I do hope you are all well. I am sorry again for being a way so long!!

Oh, what a lovely design. I wish I was in felixstowe for art on the prom, all my family live there but I have a wedding that weekend. Good luck with it, I'm sure the bags will fly.

Your sketch really struck me Jess before I even got to the bag. Great simple idea. I was reading your purple patch post too and thought of how I've been on a roll lately and waiting for it to stop for a bit. Creativity is always like that and it's really frustrating. Good to hear I'm not alone even though it's not great when it's you losing the moment.
