Mr Darcy II


Apparently there has already been a Mr Darcy I…definitely adding this one to the ‘future pet names’ list (is it just me who has one of these?!). This one actually started life as a design for a piece of sewing but let’s just say it didn’t go to plan when I started it!


Index Card: Lunar Serenade


Another index card – and another moon/starscape! I do love this kind of imagery, and although I don’t know where it came from I’ve had the idea, and the phrase ‘The moon serenades the stars’, in my head for quite a while but never actually put it all together until now (no points for guessing the simple song the moon is singing to his starry companions – hint: it begins with ‘Twinkle’…).

I often go for a bit of collage or text on these cards; I think the smaller scale and sort of rougher feel really lends itself to that, and because I suppose I was originally inspired by Artist Trading Cards when I started using index cards, and they are typically very playful and full of all sorts of different media – text, buttons, stamps…I love that kind of thing!
