New 'Faffing' on a Sunday night.

Evening Everyone

Well, I was looking around my craft room today, pottering around as you do and I came across my Letraset promarker pens. (You can buy them here: So I thought, you know what- I haven't done any illustration in a while and so inspired by these pens and the lovely pastel-y shades I've got, I set to work.

I first had to figure out what I wanted to draw! There were so many ideas buzzing around in my head but I eventually settled on a 'Birth' date illustration. I love birds and nature so this theme came kinda organically. I might make it up into a textile piece, or have some printed to sell on my Etsy shop ( or even have them as personalised illustrations for new parents to celebrate the impending birth of their new little one. I'm chuffed with how it has come out- I've never designed things for babies before and I really enjoyed doing it. I may even incorporate the design into 'Baby's Birth' Journals. I'd love to hear your thoughts on these ideas.

Here we are then- some pictures of my first 'baby birth date' illustration. I hope you like them.
