Developing new Christmas designs . . .

I’ve just finalised the four designs mini gift wrap designs I have created for Moobaacluck. The next step will be to work out how best to offer it to people! Clearly it would be easier for me to print sets and have them ready to send out; but there is every possibility that someone would want 4 of only one design..

A glimpse of all four.

What do you think?

I deliberately used only one colour for each gift wrap design because as well as being ideal for wrapping small gifts, I think they would make great scrap booking or crafting papers. Very meticulous children or adults might enjoy colouring elements in!

These will be available shortly on moobaacluck.com and notonthehighstreet.com/moobaacluck¬† – as soon as I’ve worked out the best scenario! I will sleep on it.

Joy – if you are reading this I will send you your set – I haven’t forgotten!!

Designing patterns and postcards

My great granny’s tea cup – a postcard design

Today, I have at last started putting together a small collection of greeting cards and postcards.

I’m making a set of 8 postcards¬† – 4 designs. This is one that I possibly need to play around with a lot more!

What is your instant reaction on seeing it?

The cup actually is this colour…which of course would have been extremely practical!

Hello

Well, here I am challenging myself to create something a little bit special in terms of a blog. More on that when I have worked out how to change the css to achieve brown text. I seem to have conquered part of it but not the black type in the margin on the right. If you’re a whizz with CSS please shout if you think you know which bits of the CSS I need to tackle!

News flash: I have just produced my own wrapping paper that is currently for sale only in my Moobaacluck.com shop while I build my new illustration and stationery shop at GabriellaBuckingham.com.

I call this design “Circus Spiral” because the colours and patterns conjure up images of the whirling circus tents and characters. It was a joy to design as a purely abstract spontaneous pattern.
