I wrote a cheeky round up of tips and tricks for any fellow makers who are attending their first craft fairs!Read More
OH MY GOD I cannot BELIEVE that the project I've been working on for so long is finally here in my tiny little hands. I've collaborated with writer Cheryl Rickman on this amazing, inspirational and relaxing book with tips on how to Flourish, alongside many illustrated pages drawn by myself to colour in!
There's a wonderful mixture of patterns, illustrations and typography to sink your teeth into, all while winding down and taking a breather.
The Flourish Colouring Book: Art Therapy Mindfulness is available to order on Amazon here!
It would make a wonderful gift or an excellent way to chill-out at the weekend. Either way, I would love to see your coloured pages! Tag me in your pics or hashtag #amyharwoodcolouring :)
Today I spent the morning playing with my new camera re-shooting my stationery stock. My Etsy shop needed a bit of a makeover and I've FINALLY got round to building a store front in my website!
As well as shooting the cards and notebooks I already have in stock, I've been ticking off my to do list of creating templates for all the bespoke prints and gifts I'd like to launch before Christmas time starts to kick in - the first of which is my bespoke hand-drawn greetings card! I've been asked by friends before to make hand painted cards for their loved ones from which I've received great feedback, and it also feels wonderful providing this personalised and unique service!
They are hand drawn opposed to digital templates because the market is saturated with beautifully designed customisable digital prints and cards, and although I love working digitally, I want to get back in touch with my roots, before the world of Wacom tablets took me in! Back in college and uni I experimented with all sorts of materials and make making, and secretly I miss getting messy! Also, a hand made one of a kind print or card makes the gift even more special, don'tcha think.
