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 and  – 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!!

The first of a new little collection of gift wrap

I designed this last night and it will be available along with another two designs when I release my new Christmas collection in my Etsy shop inkpaintpaper, in my notonthehighstreet  shop and of course in . Just those 3 shops! Plenty eh?  ( not sure about these link colours… I can’t quite fathom why they are not either all purple or all blue?!) Do you?

There’s something unusual about the gift wrap which may or may not be a winner.

I’ll reveal that once I’ve done the other designs!:) But if you want to guess I’ll send you some if you are right!

I hope my customers like it.

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 shop while I build my new illustration and stationery shop at

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.
