Mermaids are coming!

Here is a sneak preview of a Mermaid kit I am working on. Png files , psd files a background to play with. This kit is as big as your imagination. Each piece needs to be extracted (the background taken out) and named so that they can be dragged to the background, or used in other ways you may dream up. I don't have a release date yet, but soon, very soon I will have it available for play!

Mermaids are HERE!

I love butterflies, and it was so much fun creating this kit. The files are 300 dpi, in .psd, .png, and.jpg. The things you could make with this file!

I imagine it printed out and made into paper tags or paper ornaments. Fabric transfers, ironed on felt and lightly stuffed and trimmed with a ribbon. Use your ink-jet printer and print on sticker paper and use in journals or letters and notes.

Available for instant download at birdandflower Etsy.

Social Creatures

One of the things I am having fun with in Inkscape, is using lines and shapes to create interesting faces. I really wanted to see how many different faces i could create by using a limited palette and mixing drawing elements.

My favorite kind of dress

Just another reason I can't wait for summer, or at least a warm spring: I love summer dresses.

A lovely nap

I love sleeping in a dark quiet room. I wrap myself in the covers and trap the dreams and ideas as they go by.

Learning inkscape

I have been working, playing with the open source software Inkscape. So much fun! I started for weeks with my tablet scribbling trying to get used to the pressure, timing and co-ordinate the tablet with the monitor.

After 20-30 of these I began to get control of the tablet, in a way that is comfortable for me. The icons above began as a doodle/scribble file like this:
