New Bluebell Painting: "Ringing in the Spring"

Hello there. Hope you're well and thriving.

And after a much-needed (staycation) break, it's time to reveal something new.

Enter this new bluebell painting. (Though am loving how it's turned out-and that it was inspired by a single walk in our local woodland, that was drenching itself in the magic and newness of spring).

In my original draft of this post, I was also going to be talking about how excited I was to have found a new way to get prints to you easily.

As am still having some  issues with that new service, that will have to wait. (And no, I don't want to name the service, because the teething problems could well be my own fault, and I don't want to be in any way unfair).

Which I guess is a roundabout way of saying that this print is still available, along with lots of other lovely items, in my Redbubble shop.

There'll be more soon, and thanks for waiting for this post!

PS. Update on April 30th: If you enjoy cardmaking and crafting, a sheet based on this painting is also available.

New Design: Purple and White Anemones Are Surprising...

This week's design is a surprise. The purple and white anemones were originally created for all the lovely people who buy my craft sheets. Thank you so very much, and here's a link to the latest floral sheets in action there.

4 Purple Anemone Patterned Coasters

What surprised me though, is how unexpectedly bright, striking and beautiful they looked on other items, from stickers to shower curtains. And especially on the small and pretty items that are so great and easy to send as gifts, like coasters, scarves, and pouches.

And if you like this design (or have others you'd like to see) please do let me know on the BoundingSquirrel Facebook page.

Hope you enjoy this design in any event...and more soon!





Purple Anemone Patterned Scarf


PS and update on March 23rd. Have just realised that forgot to say I'd be taking a week's (staycation!) break to re-charge and soak in some of fresh air and lovely spring sunshine we now have. All has gone to plan, and, re-energised and re-inspired, I'll be back next week. Thanks in advance for your understanding and my apologies for not saying this last week.

New "Rose Girl" Design and A Dilemma...


Hello there. Hope this post finds you thriving, and (ideally) in temperatures much warmer than our own current *spring* cold snap.



In anticipation of all things summer though, this "Rose Girl" design appeared the other day. (I say "appeared," because was sat down meaning to draw something else entirely, and somehow this design happened instead). The whole business of creating things seems to be like that sometimes. You expect oranges, but get pears...And yet, it all works out.









Anyway, this led to a dilemma, because she's quite different to a lot of the things I normally draw (being a person, for one thing ;-)).

But after encouragement from some friends online, I uploaded her to my Redbubble shop, and am glad I did. Because it turns out she's rockin' it on greeting cards, wall art, magnets, pillows/cushions, and more.






Hope she brings you thoughts of peaceful summer days too. And in any event, have a happy weekend. 
More soon!
