Melbourne in November
I love Melbourne.
Have done for years.
Tried to relocate there many years ago when I was oh so young.
Ended up being offered a job in Sydney.
And here I am still.
I'll be back in Melbourne.
November 26 - 28th.
To be precise.
At my stall in Malvern Hall.
To be even more precise.
Contrary to popular belief you do not need to own a child or a designer pram to enjoy the MAGNOLIA SQUARE MARKETS. So do swing by if you're in the mood for shopping. This is my last outing for the year with feedthedog and I have gone a bit girly. Amongst other things. Not sure where, why, how exactly the girly urge took hold. A while back I found myself sketching some roses from a luscious spread in some magazine.
Isolated a few stems and played around with colours and backgrounds in Photoshop.
Cut a few stencils.
Printed and hung up to dry.
Plumped up with goose feathers.
I've had these out at a couple of markets now but sadly no one's been buying.
Duds or ahead of my time?
Let's see if Melbourne likes the blooms.
Something tells me these will be appearing on sale in my etsy shop in December.
And some more work-in-progress. I've got a bit of tree obsession going on as well.
