Cushion: 'Olives' on Spice

What a fun day I've had today printing the first of the new Kristopher K Cushions - this design features snow white olives on spice coloured fabric.
I am screen printing these designs by hand, using eco friendly water based inks, on a beautiful linen/cotton blend fabric.
These cushions will be available soon in the Kristopher K Shop!
Hope your having a lovely weekend too :)
Cheers Kris

Just Arrived !!!!

... I couldn't wait to show you all these beautiful natural raw Jute 'Market Tote' Bags, that have just been added to the Kristopher K Shop.

Available now in this wonderful softened, natural clay coloured Jute <here>

I will also be hand screen printing a variety of new 'Kristohper K' designs on these totes in a cool collection of earthy shades (... coming soon :)

Stylish and strong, Jute (also known as burlap) is an environmentally friendly, natural alternative to regular poly and plastic bags.

Biodegradable, re-useable and oh so versatile - jute bags are perfect for so many applications: from shopping, picnics & storing your market produce, to adding a rustic provincial flair to your home decor :)

"Easy As" paper flowers :)

Happy Sunday ...

Today I've been making some fun paper flowers, that are not only an ideal way to dress up and decorate gifts but are oh so wonderfully - "Easy As" - to make.

I like to make them from recycled white tissue paper, (after carefully removing the wrap so often used by department stores on new purchases) - but vibrant colours work well for kids birthday parties, and restricted or limited mixed colour palettes help give a co-ordinated look to presents under a Christmas tree etc ....

.... If you'd like to try these out for yourself, see a wonderful tutorial for similar tissue paper flowers 
on the Feeling Fuzzy Blog <here>

But be warned ... try stopping after you've made just one :)
