Easter Egg Activity - Free Printable Activity For Kids

Last year I created these little egg people outfits as a printable activity for Easter, and this year, I am re-releasing it with a few changes. I know some people made these last year, but it will be new to a lot of people too. I've changed the colour and textures of the outfit, and I've added to the accessories, which now include rabbit ears and extra flowers. My oldest loved it last year and I'm hoping my youngest can join in this year in creating our little egg display.  I have one sheet with full colour items, for younger children or for...

What does Fine Art Paper / Archival Print / Fine Art Print Paper actually mean?

What does Fine Art Paper / Archival Print / Fine Art Print Paper actually mean?

The term 'Fine Art Print', or 'Archival Print' can mean many things, and especially when you're looking for wall prints online, it's hard to grasp the exact colour, texture and quality of the print when you can't touch it, or look at it closely. While I try to show accurate images for my products, I still thought I would start a blog series on the materials and processes I use to give you an insight into what to expect in quality when you order one of my prints or charts. As the tag line 'Fine [Ch]art Prints' suggests, all of my wall charts are printed...

Free printable: pop-up cactus garden postcard

I have a free printable project for you, a sweet little pop-up postcard you can send to friends or family. I have had a lifelong obsession with cacti, I think it began with this book, a favourite of my childhood. So I plan on sitting this next to my computer, having had no luck at all with real-life indoor plants! I haven't added anything extra in this tutorial, apart from cutting out the cacti. But I would love to add some tissue paper flowers, or washi tape to decorate the pots. Download the file here, and have fun!

FAQ: What medium do I use to illustrate?

I thought I would start a section here on the blog to answer any questions people have about my work, and also to show a glimpse into my processes and tools. The question I get asked the absolute most is what medium I use to complete my illustrations. It usually surprises people to hear that I work in digital mediums, and most people are unclear on what exactly this means, and why I choose to work this way. So I thought it was the perfect opportunity to include this in my website. My tools that I can't live without for...

Free Printable: Little house envelope

Envelopes have been inspiring me lately, so this week, I have a cute little envelope template for you, to make letters even more special. This free printable envelope takes on the form of a little pink cottage when opened (I love pink houses, but don’t worry there will be loads of 'boy stuff' coming too). It features a little welcoming waver greeting the recipient upon opening. The front of the envelope is created so that a stamp will present another window on the house - a chance to be creative with stamps. Getting hand-written notes is, of course, becoming increasingly...
