I didn’t take pictures while painting this collection, but I should have. May be. Now I look at it and wish I had pictures of the early stages and pencil drawings.
Do you use winter clipart?
I’m getting more and more curious to hear what different people do with these collections. SO, write us, drop a line here or on Instagram. We’d love to hear from you!
I imagine the most popular use of such collection is for cards for the holidays or winter birthdays and announcements, but how about some fabric or gadget cases?
Now I’m not sure everyone sees the tiny squares on Gumroad pictures, that indicate there is more than one image and honestly I find them ridiculously small and invisible. This is one of the reasons why I’ll post some of the preview images also here, so everyone could see them without having to guess where’s the rest.
It’s Summer for some time already, yet there are many sunny days ahead yet. And my mood is summery.Think coconut cocktails and sunshine.
A month ago we released the Aoha Kakou – Hawaii flower clipart collection and not sure if you have seen it yet, but it is a summer vacation design treasury. It was planned as mainly Tiki clipart collection, but in the process I fell in love with the tropical flowers and greenery.
While working we decided to expand and add to the tiki and tribal patterns more romantic elements like Hawaiian Lei, bouquets, palm leaves and more patterns. At the end we added some pre-made card designs, but instead of trying to describe, I’ll just post some preview images here, so you can see for yourself.
If you want to get the full collection or part of it as a mini collection, we have added them all to the shop.
This herbs watercolor clipart is just a work-in-progress yet. It’s a tad overwhelming to decide which herbs to include in this clipart collection. There are at least a dozen I know, that are beautiful bloomers and amazing healers, but are local to Bulgaria and I can’t find their global twins. There is no much point of making herbs collection with herbs only used in the Balkans, right? So I’ll stick to the most popular now and maybe later expand the collection with some more exotic and at the same time popular herbs like tumeric, cinnamon and ginger.
Smell of fresh cut Basil. The soft leathery texture of the Rosemary leaves. Taste of Salvia.
This is the time I usually freeze fresh cut herbs. They are a treasury when all gets grey and the snow is no fun anymore.
Most of them, if not all, are not only tasty, but true and tested healing plants. Only if I remember this next time when I get cold!
The tiny watercolor basil and rosemary are part of a bigger project I’m working on now. They’ll become container labels for dried herbs. I already did part of the lettering, but there are more herbs to paint now.
