This week, I worked on some Spring designs. I really enjoyed working on smaller pieces and focusing on flowers and cuteness. It’s such a change after the three bigger pieces I worked on in February.
I’m preparing for a Spring market (more news on this soon!), and I still have a lot of work to do to be ready for it.
I paint each picture with watercolors and use some coloring pencils for details. After that, I scan and work on the pictures digitally if they need it. Then, it’s the fun part: printing the stickers!
After visiting the Van Gogh exhibit last week, I realized that I really didn’t know much about this fabulous painter. I was deeply touched by his work, and I wanted to know more, so I explored the library and found the book Vincent and Theo by Deborah Heiligman.
It’s a really fascinating read. It is so touching to learn about Van Gogh as a kid and to see him struggle to find what he really wants to do in life. It’s also interesting to see how much he traveled and tried different professions. It’s also very impressive to know that he was fluent in many different languages. His relationship with his family, and in particular his brother Theo, is at the center of this book which gives a very personal point of view to this biography. I’m not done yet, but so far, so good!
New in the Etsy Store
I really have a lot of fun creating new products for the store, and I hope you will have as much fun using them in your daily life!
This week, the first spring stickers are available both as a sticker sheet and as bigger individual sticker packs.
