Next shop re-stock will be this coming week: Thursday the 27th at 7pm. All of the available kittens (vases + brooches) are listed now as 'coming soon', so you can visit my shop (link in my bio) to view and meet them all before then 💕
WIP 💕 Some people were asking recently what my design process looks like, so here's some highlights. I see at my work place all time people trying to get things 'perfect' first time, or wondering if their idea 'will work'... even having a hard time with sizing. My advice, and my personal process, is to get really comfortable with low fidelity prototypes (paper) BEFORE going digital. Then sampling in cheap materials (like black or white acrylic) and revising from there. This is an idea I have for a planter... I love it now, and have some revisions I'd still like to make. I'll keep it like this for a few days to make notes for what I like and don't like about it, then revise my digital file before test cutting again. Any questions, ask below and I'll help where I can 💕
Everyone: this is Cinder 💕 Hir flower crown is pink marble acrylic, with black painted flowers 😻 Coming soon...
New mini brooches (about 3cm tall). There's 3 of each pumpcat and 7 of the black one, called Raven (accidental pop culture reference - I just really love the moon rotated 😻). Coming in my next re-stock.
All of my new vases + brooches are now up my shop (link in my bio). They're listed as 'coming soon' (until next week), so you can see and meet them all. Let me know your favourite 💕
My little home studio work bench (made from a combination of Ikea and Bunnings pieces left over from the work studio) 😻 Complete with a new laser cut/engraved LED light that my love made for me 😭💕💕
The shadows that these clear vases make 😻 and the glitter sparkles 😭💕 It's all coming together just perfect 💕
Picked up some pretty flowers for using in vase photos tomorrow 😍😍😍
Kitten vases in progress 😻 for my shop update in about 2 weeks... I'm going to hang out with them for a while, take some cute photos of them, name them, put water plants in them... 💕
This is really mesmerising and I can't wait to get some pictures of this in natural light with water plants and flowers in it 😻 Next shop update coming real soon 🤞 Sign up to my newsletter for updates 'cause I'll share all the details there as soon as I've got everything ready 💕
Lots of sneak peaks of my new cards and latest batch of laser cut goodies (cut and engraved by @shauna.nobuko at @vectoretch) in my stories right meow 😻
Some of the first kitten vases are starting to be displayed in their furrever homes 🙀😻💕
Planning the colours for my next kitten vases 😻 Hoping to have another shop update in a couple of weeks, hopefully sooner 🤞 Been doing all sorts of 'business' things behind the scenes (set up a home studio, new website, business cards, etc) - 'cause I'd really love to do this part time (and it feels amazing to want to do personal creative work again!). I'm so happy!!!! Taking the huge leap to drop Creep Heart in pursuit of art-for-the-love of it has been the best thing I ever did (and the hardest!). Thank you all so much for sticking around while I went though some big changes 💕💕💕
Remember when I used to draw, like, all the time? Well, I got all my programs and brushes sorted and started to sketch out vase ideas 🙀 I use Manga studio on my Surface Pro with brushes by Frenden that I bought on the interwebs. I'm pretty sure there are better apps or whatever out there that are good, but this is what I know and don't wanna learn new stuff 😭🎀💕 Also, I'm completely out of practice to draw smooth lines!
