New card collection all about toadstools
During the summer I spent some time mulling over what I should paint for the new collection, ready to launch in autumn.
Toadstools have been one of the topics on my ‘product ideas’ list forever and I decided it was high time to start designing a new card collection all about them, as they always remind me of autumn. I finally made the decision and was raring to go and turn the collection idea to reality!
I painted several toadstools of various sizes and styles in one sitting. I let myself paint without overthinking and I actually loved everything about my first batch of paintings. I only repainted a couple, which is rare!
With the illustrations scanned in, tidied up and ready to go, I started planning the collection. I decided on creating thank you, birthday, new home, and new baby cards.
Alongside new hand lettering styles made on my drawing tablet, I came up with six designs and I absolutely love how cohesively they fit together. The designs also look fantastic against kraft brown envelopes.
This is not my first time creating designs based on toadstools. I already have a toadstool washi tape and wooden decoration in my shop, both of which are popular with my nature loving customers, but I couldn’t be more thrilled to introduce additional toadstool designs to my full range.
