Its funny how easy it is to forgive and forget all the endlessly grey days when the British Summer finally comes up trumps!
The countryside has been much on my mind this week. I have been working again on my new website design (an ongoing project!) and decided to put together a collection of images to show some of the inspiration behind my designs.
It was an interesting exercise because it really brought home to me how much the colours, shapes, textures and smells of my surroundings influence my creativity. I find the rural life nourishing on many levels, but now i'm beginning to appreciate how much it inspires my inner artist :) (I'd be very interested to hear about what inspires you to create if you'd care to share in the comments!)
Country Life Mug
With all this in mind i'm sure it won't be hard for you to spot the inspiration behind my latest mug design...
I may have gone a little crazy with the detailing... believe it or not i had to stop myself adding more! My mugs of this size are normally priced at £12, although i think i'll have to charge a little more for this one as i have put so much time into it. Here is the reverse side...
I'm occurred to me that this might also work as a stand alone design... what do you think?
Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts on this week's creations, i really value the comments left on my posts, they are always so kind and also extremely helpful!
