    Kim Anderson Artist & Illustrator

I logged onto facebook and went through the news feed and, found something very unique and breathtaking that i just had to share. I will admit this, I have fallen in love! with this artist & illustrator.

    Kims success commercially has naturally followed on from her inspirational artwork and led to several collaborations with high profile companies as well as running her successful online Etsy shop.

    Not only does the artist & illustrator create stunning trees but she paints hearts as well which prove to be a hit with newlyweds. How gorgeous a gift that would be to receive as a wedding gift, framed too!

    Examples of Kim Andersons greeting cards as shown above. These cards are just beautiful and you would certainly know cards if you walked stumbled upon them, as Kim has her very own signature and it is noticable straight away.

    Kim has had some of her designs created into cross stitch patterns as well as her greeting cards and collage work. Now that I have seen this I would love to purchase one of her cross stitch designs and create, could see this being made into a cushion with very pretty floral fabric on the other side.

    Above just shows an example of Kims' collage work, I can just see this in a box frame hung on a wall.

    I simply love this teacup with little butterflies fluttering out the teacup and lots of pretty tiny flowers adorning the teacup also. This is called "Flower Burst". Absolutely delightful and the colours are gorgeous. This would be perfect for on the walls of a bakery or cafe.

    Below is just showing you an example of Kim Anderson's collage work where she uses an array of pretty patterned papers creating her illustrations. I think these owls are just really twoo twoo cute!

    Her inspiration is found from all around her in daily life but is also inspired by magazines and well known artists Elizabeth Blackadder, Picasso and the Bloomsbury Group. You can see more of her designs and creations on either her facebook pageor her website. Amazing artist & illustrator.

  • What is Anime/Manga and Why should you Create it in Vector? | Vectortuts+

    Sometimes the words can be confusing, but the term anime refers to Japanese animation, such as the cartoons on television, and the term manga refers to comic strips. Often times, Japanese people will use manga to refer to both. The vector media works well with anime because of the clean crisp lines and the ability to create nice, smooth gradients.

  • Kath's Blog......diary of the everyday life of a crafter: The Ribbon Girl February Colour Challenge

    Crafting Everyday

    Not all decorating styles are preferred by the same people. If a person is not into the inky grungy style of card making, they can do soft and girly with them too. This shows how versatile these stamps are. Cute buttons are used on the card that make these very appealing. The song bird design is also gorgeous and a good option for different types of cards. The cards are very flexible for many people.

    This article discusses how to paint trees in a realistic manner. The key word here is observation. Observe the subject, in this case trees, and allow your eye to follow their design and pattern. Really see what it is that you are looking at. Then, allow your brush to mimic the same pattern you saw. Every tree is different so pay attention to the details.

  • Trip to Oban

    Inspiried by Oban

    We were very lucky to have got away on two business trips this year, one of which was a trip to Oban whilst  celebrating our 6th year wedding anniversary. We managed to enjoy our celebration of our wedding anniversary but we  got to discuss business matters and brainstorm our ideas for the future of the business. . As Christians, we are asking our Lord to guide us as to what he wants us to do with our painting and, prayers are being answered because of our strong faith.  It brings us such delight to be able to allow our faith to have such an impact on our business and, life generally but, workwise it is such a huge unknown step of faith.

    Our trip to Oban was amazing. The scenery was breathtaking. As we walked around the harbour we noticed how clear the sea water was, it was as clear as crystal that you could  see right to the bottom of the sea. We were amazed. The clear waters against the landscapes from a far distance was a beautiful sight. The churches, sea and ferries at a standstill looked beautiful set against the landscape and,  skyline too. We were starting to feel really inspired by our surroundings there in Oban. This was our first trip there and, we were falling in love with the place. As you can see from the photos below, you can see why any artist would be inspired by the place. We expected it to be very quiet but, cars were coming here, there an everywhere that we were beginning to wonder where they were all coming from and going to, as Oban is isolated. The hardest part of the trip was actually finding a car parking space, would you believe!

    These photos below : some were taken from up at McCaigs Tower, a couple of McCaigs Tower itself  and a couple from our hotel suite.

    (Anniversary Flower Bouquet)

    We drove up to McCaigs Tower sat upon the hills and, to our amazement the views of Oban from up there were absolutely spectacular! (Photo below) The tower was build in memory of family. I was just in awe at the amazing colours in the land, sea and sky from where I was standing and, the sun made the view even more amazing highlighting parts of the scenery. A breathtaking moment and a moment I will never forget. I am feeling quite inclined to paint the beauty of  Oban and release the calming emotions I felt while visiting there.

    IMG_0409

    If you are an artist and, need some inspiration or even just want to have trip away I encourage you to visit Oban for a couple of nights at least. Lots to see and do and many areas to go and paint outdoors, or you can photograph the many beautiful views if you enjoy going around snapping away with a camera.
