I know that everyone has posted about Amy Ross a million times, but I just really love her work. I first came across her work at the ArtStroll in Atlanta (which I highly recommend). I just thought I'd share a few more images. The Fairy Ring piece has always reminded me of Time Capsule by Alison Gill (below), which I saw at my favorite exhibition of all time, Dream Machines at the Camden Arts Centre.

Oh dear, it's been rather a long time. I'm not sure where the past three months have gone. I am in the process of starting up a proper little business for myself. At the moment I'm designing a range of paper bridal bouquets with boutonnieres and various other things. So far I'm really pleased with the outcome, and excited about it. I'll be opening the shop soon!

Okay, I've been ploughing through the Nieves site and can't resist sharing some more spreads from the books they have on offer. I am ridiculously inspired right now.

Hello! I have been away on holiday in France for a couple of weeks. I had such a lovely time that now I feel sad to be home and at work again. We ate osters at a beautful little town, spent lazy days on the beach and by the pool, made BBQs, watch sun sets, did body boarding. It was really wonderful. I might post some pictures over the coming week.
For now, take a look at the beautiful work of Lizzie Thomas.
See you soon!
