Yep, I managed to get my first treasury today!

After much refreshing of the page, I was able to finally get a treasury, although at this point I hadn’t even thought about what to call it, hence the rather unimaginative ‘Colourful Beauty’! But I guess I’ll learn for next time…Be more organised! It was difficult to choose what pieces to go for as there were so many different styles I liked, but in the end I went for something bright and eclectic, and I put two pieces of my work in there…a bit of shameless promoting but I think they fit quite well!

Following my earlier post today, I wanted to show you the first of a series of prints that I have been working on and have released on my Filiadavidus Shop on Etsy. Having been playing around with some ideas I decided to make a start on some illustrations that were based around something fun and kind of playful. So after much deliberation I decided to lend my focus to shoes….mmmm

Shoes? I hear you ask, well I have gained a fair selection over the years, from far and wide, and like a lot of people (particularly women) will agree there’s nothing nicer than a beautiful pair of shoes. In fact when I was young I used to sit and stare at my new shoes for hours after I’d bought them, and sometimes even sit in the middle of the floor and surround myself with as many different pairs as I could fit in the space! What am I saying I still do that!

But less about sitting in piles of shoes, back to the print. My first print is called ‘The Red Pumps’ and it’s a sketchy illustration of my MOST favorite pair of shoes, I love red and these are so cute when worn with skinny jeans and a shirt I just had to draw them and put them up for everyone to see. Enjoy, if you want to see the print in my shop, click here.

As I’ve been busy with some family things over the bank holiday weekend and with my new much improved printer that arrived yesterday (much to my excited glee), I haven’t had a great deal of time to concentrate on new images. So I thought as my posts have been a little sparse I would share a couple of designers I found on Etsy, that were really inspirational to me. It was difficult picking two to show as there are soo many talented people on there, but here they are :

Krystyna81.etsy.com

– Her art work is absolutely beautiful. The application of the different media she uses is very accomplished and she has a strong use of light and shadow in her work which makes it really striking. I love the sketchy and painterly way the media is applied. Krystyna81’s work is definately something I would put up on my own walls.


ellembee.etsy.com

– These t-shirt designs are lovely and very wearable. I could definitely see myself in one of these, the only problem would be deciding which one as there are so many nice designs!

So here are few of the holiday snaps, I wish I could put more up I think it’s all about quality not quantity! I choose these ones for different reasons, their interesting patterns/history and just because I like the composition. I had lots to choose from in the end so it was very hard, these aren’t necessarily my favourites, they’re just ones I find currently interesting.
