'Twas the nightmare before Christmas when inside the house, the Grinch left a crumb too small for a mouse. Over the last few weeks I've been repainting Christmas decorations that I made (and my dad cut out) last year. The varnish that I used previously made the paint crack, so I had to sand them… Continue reading Christmas Decorations
As you might remember, earlier this year, I was lucky enough to have my artwork selected to be in a Vlogbrothers calendar. The calendar is still available at: https://store.dftba.com/collections/all/products/2019-pizzamas-calendar and it's half price at the moment, so it's only $10 usd (not including postage). All the royalties from this calendar will be donated to the… Continue reading Pizza John Calendar
I've finally finished painting the cupboards in the laundry at my house! Don't ask me how long it took because I have no idea, and I don't really want to know. If you haven't seen my previous post about painting these cupboards, why don't you have a look: Painting Flowers on Cupboard Doors I seem to… Continue reading Painted Cupboards
This card was a bit of an experiment. After making the Greatest Showman card, I thought it would be fun to try other cards with holes in the centre. I had the idea of creating a layered mandala-inspired card, and, seeing as I needed to make a card for my uncle's birthday, I thought I'd… Continue reading Layered Mandala Card

The calendar is only available during Pizzamas, which ends on the 9th of November. If you're interested in buying the calendar or looking at some of the… Continue reading Pizza John Calendar
My parents' wedding anniversary was last week, so I made cards for them to give to each other. I was considering not making cards for them, but then I had what I thought could be a really cool idea, and I figured this was a good opportunity to try it. As you can see from… Continue reading Matching Anniversary Cards
I needed to make a card for my cousin, so I decided try something a bit different. The figure (inspired by Zendaya in The Greatest Showman) is hanging in the card and can be wound up, so that it spins (see video below). I wasn't certain that this was going to work when I started… Continue reading The Greatest Showman Birthday Card
I made this Tamatoa sculpture last year, when I'd only just started using polymer clay, so this was made before I decided that painting the clay worked best for me.The shell of the crab is made out of an actual shell covered in clay with glitter pressed into it. I added the jewels after baking… Continue reading Polymer Clay Tamatoa from Moana
I have recently been painting the cupboard doors in the laundry. My mum always wanted to paint them with flowers, but she's never had time to do it, so I've decided to try.
