Above, mixed media- acrylic ink, tissue paper, ink transfer, ink pen on paper, 10.3 x 15.5cm
A quick little piece to use up a few scrap pieces of paper material- also I love Douglas DC2s and I haven’t drawn any for a while.
I also had a frame to fit this so I actually framed a piece straight away rather than it being rolled and put into art storage.

This piece is layers of tissue paper, acrylic ink and cut book text on a Moleskine page.
For a charity week/event at Crystal Finance, I was asked to turn an old laptop cardboard box into something that reflected an old sweet shop. The box would hold various sweets and chocolates to sell for charity- the smaller gold box you can see in the images acted as a money pot.
I used acrylic paint for the majority of the box, the white dots were actually made with a circle paper punch and blank sticky label. The sweets jars and sign were watercolour, ink pen and acrylic ink, these were fun to paint. I also added some blue polka dot ribbon on the inside so that the top of the box would stay upright when opened.
This actually took me a couple of days but I loved how it came out and now I won’t want to throw out any boxes in case I feel like decorating them for something else.
