2018 so far for me has been slow but in a good way. I began the year as do many makers with great positivity and enthusiasm to get going on new work. I wanted to start making fresh new cards, and in January I did with some Valentine Love Trees. I designed a new tree shape for these which I have decided to continue using for other occassions by substituting the red for more Spring-like colours.
Some of the new paper colourways I have introduced for Spring and Mother's Day Love Trees.
I have been trying out some square format blanks in light grey. I was wanting to do a range using cut-out letters so had a go with these. I'm not sure if they are going to do well so only do a few to begin and see how they go. I like the colour, size and shape.
After making these I have made a decision to concentrate on not making to many new cards this year. Despite my early eagerness, it has been lovely to slow down a bit. I will not stop altogether just be good to do fewer, I'm hoping this will cut down on waste and build up a best selling collection of favourite cards. I will swap about different papers suiting each season and see how this develops.
I have managed to keep up my new photography which I worked on at the end of last year, so eventually the website is getting updated with all my popular designs www.juliettemcintosh.com.
