I love illustration and at the beginning of the summer I was loosening up and trying all sorts of new things, one of which was illustrating a couple of scrapbooks as gifts for our lovely reception teachers at my daughter’s school. All of the parents contributed by sending photos of their children and messages, either hand written, written by the kids or sent to me by email to be transcribed. I used my trusty washi tape and my top fave Faber Castel markers to jazz them up a bit.
The books came from Paperchase and I imported some amazing gold felt from the US to do the lettering on the front which looked awesome against the linen.
And even better, I got a commission to do a personalised book for a friend, so that will start next week and I’m really excited to get going with it!
