green

Today is the opening of Green Pop, an eco-friendly themed market that Poppyhandmade will run until April 11th. I'm happy to join other artists there so if you have a chance pop on over for a visit. As always there is some wonderful work there.



Speaking of green, I'm happy to report that all the white paper that I use for my wall art is now all eco-friendly (my cards have always been). The paper is manufactured by a company that uses green energy in the form of a water mill. I've introduced a few of new pieces to my wall art page that you can see here.

My efforts in being more 'green' have also extended to using what I have. The cork, that is making it's first appearance in my wall art, is actually part of scraps that I had on hand from old projects. The entire alphabet will be forthcoming. Slowly... but surely.

Now, after a relaxing weekend, it's time to get to work! :)

  1. Oh, I LOVE this! The cork is wonderful, but the "b" just really speaks to me (obviously)!

  2. More delightfulness from you. And I love your commitment to green, and the way you use your scraps to make more beautiful things. Also, I was so excited that your latest tree (#10) will soon be hanging on my wall.

  9. Hello! I know you from the inspiration boards! This is sooo cute! For the longest time I have been meaning to ask if you've ever heard of a fellow cutting artist Ida Pearle? Her work is amazing, I always think you might appreciate and enjoy it! http://www.idapearle.com/

  10. I purchased this beautiful piece from your Etsy shop! I'm thrilled to receive it as it is a gift for a dear friend who loves butterflies, which have become a meaningful symbol to him of growth, change, freedom, and beauty.

    Also, I hope you will make some more of your beautiful tree pieces with blue backgrounds. I'm eager to purchase one for my home. :)

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful work.

  11. I can't wait for the rest of the alphabet. If you're not going in order can I put in a request for P? My daughter is REALLY (crazily) excited about her own initial at the moment--would love to purchase this for her as an extra special gift :)

    Keep up the fantastic work on the blog and with the art!

  12. Hi! I love checking in on your blog to see what you're up to, but this is the first time I've commented. I too am in love with paper. It's almost an addiction! My current 'fixation' is on using vintage dictionary and hymnal pages in my artwork. I've also used old hard-back book covers as canvases for my pieces (like on my icon.) They have such interesting textures that come through. Keep on bein' creative! (My art journal is a collaboration with my sisters and mom:

  14. I love your artwork. AND I love the fact that you use eco-friendly paper. This is a fantastic idea and something we should all aspire to do with our creations - that is, use sustainable and eco-friendly options where ever possible.
    Ive just written an interesting post on recycling fashion in my blog. If you have some time it would be great if you could visit. I have a passion for creative thinking that is also practical and positive in effect.
