Following that I created the main character which was a curious little fox.
Then came the core image which was a heart and then the rest was all fantasy and fun.
Final result is that curious little fox in a forest surrounded by nature and a mysterious path...but what happens from there is up to you to come up with.
I will be using the artist card version at a trading event that is coming up but I also created an 8x10 print version which is now available in the shop.
The print is brand new and it had a great response at the art + craft show last weekend and I absolutely LOVED listening to moms and their kids talking about the print, thinking about where they would put it in their house or in their rooms and then sending it home with them. Those moments make my heart swell up with joy and gratitude!!
This was a such a fun project and it was also fun sharing the process here and on my instagram feed. Join me over there for sneak peaks of upcoming projects and glimpses into my my inspirations.
I will have a booth there offering my full selection of prints, cards and Christmas items. If you are in the neighbourhood, please come by to say hello. There will be 80 artisans, a kids art room for the kids and and lots of unique items to help you get started on your Christmas shopping.
If you are interested in any custom pieces, please let me know soon and so I can have them ready for pick up at the show. I look forward to seeing you there!
I am feeling blessed, revitalized and ready to tackle the last few weeks of summer break with these little munchkins.
As a wife and mother my heart fills up with joy when I see my children snuggled up with their daddy, having quiet conversations or listening to their squeals of delight as they wrestle and get tickled by him. He is truly an amazing father and I hope the shower of handmade gifts and little store bought items the kids picked themselves, (plus all the extra hugs and kisses) will make him feel super special.
As an adult and a daughter, my heart fills with such appreciation for my own father. Even though I am a grown woman, with a family of my own, he is always there to support me, to help me when I need an extra hand during the day when the hubs isn't around and even to bring my ideas for craft show display stands to life. Always a father, always my dad, always there.
As I said, Fathers are awesome. The two in my life certainly are and they inspire me and inspired this Father's Day print.
To all the fathers out there, enjoy the day, relax, sleep, golf, drink beer or do nothing...you deserve it!
Happy Fathers Day!!!
We have one for preschool teachers and grade school teachers, customized with their name and in plenty of colours.

That is what inspired me to create this print as a visual reminder of the most valuable things we can possess; our character, our values, our strengths and our complexities. A reminder of what we are, what we can be or aspire to be. A back to basics. A wish list. A bucket list. A list of the reasons you are loved. All of these is what this print can mean.
What do you feel this print could mean for you? I would love to know.
It is on April 18th 2015 and runs from 11:00am to 5:00pm.
