|Flowers buried under the snow!|

However, in-between waiting for feedback on sketches/artwork etc, I've been playing around with some stamping. I just love doing this. I seem to like all print processes, I've yet to get my screen that I bought into action too. These little stamps are all sort of Christmas foliage, I'm hoping to get time to format these in photoshop next week, after I've carved them all out.
I like this bit of freedom to experiment and play with different techniques. My time is totally taken up when I get involved with the book illustrations. Sometimes I get frustrated at how little time I'm given to illustrate a book? I panic somewhat after agreeing to do something in such a short space of time, I really cannot fathom why there should be such a rush. I obviously don't know all the inner workings of what book publishers get up to, but they should understand it is time consuming doing A3 size illustrations? If anyone can explain I'd love to know??
So I've actually had this weekend off with this time to play at stamping, snowed in practically, freezing winds blowing outside. More snow to come by Good Friday apparently, when will the winter end?? I hope to bring some sunshine when I next write, my posts may be infrequent as I work my way slowly or quickly through my books. It will be an absolute joy to see them when they are done though, I know! Then I can share some images. :)

My Birthday today, had a lovely day, sun shone, lots of cards, choccies and a bit of a twirl to one of my favourite songs, turned up nice and loud, and dancing with the dog!! :) He looks at me bemused, but knows it's HAPPY time. Hope you like the tune, I think it will have your toes tapping too. Go on, it feels good. I will be back with something arty soon.
