I've set up a store on Qoop!
It's a printing website that's partnered with Flickr so it looks pretty good. I like the variety of prints and products and the site seems mainly easy to use, apart from a few problems setting up the product listings.
Here are some of the products I've set up so far:

Found On Folksy

I've been featured on Found on Folksy! What a lovely surprise to be featured when I only set up my Folksy Dick and Franny store a couple of weeks ago and I haven't had time to stock it fully yet.

Thanks to Jo Whitehead from Glassprimitif for the lovely feature!

In honour of my found feature I thought I'd follow the same lovely seaside idea and show you some of the sea themed items that I've recently listed in my Etsy and Folksy stores. I've always loved the sea and now that I'm living just 20mins walk from Bournemouth beach I have much more opportunity for seaside inspiration!
Here are some of my latest creations that have been inspired by the sea:

Beneath the Sea - Original Monoprint - $90 (£55)
This is an original monoprint from a series of five I created using leaves, string and a feather. A monoprint is a completely one off piece of art, but in this case I developed the theme using similar colours and objects in each print. I love the watery feeling and the textures in this print.

Chunky Aqua Charm Bracelet - $34 (£21)
Aquamarine, turquoise, baby blue and silver beads sparkle alongside beautiful silver charms in this gorgeous, chunky charm bracelet. Hand picked from my eclectic collection of vintage and new beads this bracelet really is unique!

Tropical Waters - Original Collage - $38 (£23)

Mixed media collage with an under water theme.
Contains watercolour, drawing, stamping and collage elements.

Blue Horizons - large Original Watercolour $140 (£86)
Cool blue and white abstract watercolour painting.
I love allowing the watercolour to create patterns and textures
and to merge vibrant colours as I paint. Intense blues and
cool white stripes, blue horizons, waves or clouds...

Sea Air - Fine Art Print $20 (£12)
Giclee print created from my original watercolour painting 'Sea Air'. This blue and white watercolour still life is fresh and breezy and really brings the seaside air in!

Cornish Harbour - Original Watercolour painting - $68 (£42)

Beautiful original watercolour painting of a cornish harbour at dusk.

Don't you just wish you were there?

To see more of my art and jewellery please have a look at my stores:
