Day 20 of #marchmeetthemaker is Design Process. 🖍️🖌️🎨💻 The best bit! As a creative I can't get enough of the designing part of my job, I'm so keen to get started with designing the next range! As a small biz owner I have to switch between so many different roles that I find myself longing to get back to sketching, researching, making mood boards and sewing. Luckily for me I'm at the stage I can begin the design process for my next range 🙌🏻 . I start the design process searching for inspiration, and seeing beautiful colour combinations in unexpected places! I then sketch out shapes for garments, ideas for print designs and come up with the mood/feel of the collection. I then source new fabrics and speak to my suppliers about new blocks, dye processes and printing techniques. When I have a bank of available materials I start to compile the styles and a draft range plan takes shape. Then the commercial side of my creative brain takes over and plans what is possible when considering costings, margin, minimum fabric orders, time scales etc and everything changes! Then I start the sampling process getting print swatches, cutting patterns and prototyping. . Many people think designers just draw pictures, I have to disagree!! Can I get an AMEN from all the creative entrepreneurs out there?!! 🙌🏻 . I'm looking at you..... @joannehawker @panchos_wardrobe @crownandfeather.uk @hicks_design_studio @amytucker82 @banditcircus @fromlittlegreenwoods @wonderandrah @onrshop @roseeadsdesign 💕

Hello dear friends and Happy Spring Equinox! 🌱 Radio silence here over recent days mostly due to my new website! Let’s call it a “Content Writing” BLOCK!! Feeling a little overwhelmed 😳 and the realisation this may take a little longer than I anticipated...Any recommendations for a good copywriter would be gratefully received x . For now it’s baby steps in the studio. There’s slow and steady Springtime goodness coming to life with fresh new paintings, large and small, in progress 💚🌿 . In short, it’s ALL COMING SOON! x . . . #suerapleyart #stylingmycreativity #cambridgeartist #createinspring #lifeofacreative #slowliving_create #artforyoureveryday #livewithart #createmakeshare #alittlebeautyeveryday #wearethemakers #wemakecollective #timeforcreativesouls #artflowsessions #passioncolorjoy #studioscenes #homeinthestudio #colorcolourlovers #arthappy #cambscreativetreasures #independentcambridge #showyourwork #inspiredbynature_ #capturemycraft #heitermoments #artforthehome #mycreativebusiness #workinprogress #creativeprocess

While the big girl is working on orders this little one has been working on stock for my upcoming shows. I opened a brand new 1000meter spool of thread to stitch up some Tic Tac S'mores boards, and ran out of thread just before finishing number 10... Ugh!! Of course I'm out of that color until later in the week, something told me to order more this morning.. So it's on to the next item 😊 . #soclose #sewclose #next #keepgoing #movingon #inthehoopembroidery #tictacsmores #mystudiotoday #homeinthestudio #makersgonnamake #creativeprocess #createeveryday #creativebiz #wip #wipwednesday

The spring equinox means our hemisphere now tilts toward the sun, and from here on out our daylight hours become longer. The light in this new studio changes so much throughout the day. It has a very strong effect on me. When I arrive in the morning it brightly pours in from the east, beckoning me to make the most of the fresh new day. By evening it fades away in the west, a gentle reminder to put down the tools and bike home before I lose the light. I’m trying to develop a healthier work rhythm and following prompts from Mother Nature is working well.

Another closeup of "Break free" I love applying colors next to each other and see how they communicate with each other. The most satisfying part is adding the gold in the end. ° Will post the rest of the painting tomorrow. Have a nice evening!❤️

And the winner is...........⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So I’m working on a custom piece right now that’s going to be bright pink, navy and gold (so delish!!!!) and one of the first steps in my process is deciding what the main focus will be. Last night I scoured Etsy and found these four amazing brooches. My lovely client let’s me have full creative license so I chose the one in the top left corner. Mainly because it came with two gorgeous clip on earrings so I felt like I was getting a deal. ;)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yeehaw!!!! And it’s already been delivered to my house. Can’t wait to show and tell you more details about the process and of course the finished product. Stay tuned!!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #lennonharperdesigns #lhdhandmade #makersgonnamake #Homeinthestudio #Handsandhustle #goalgetter #theeverygirl #calledtobecreative #livefolk #risingtidesociety #etsydesigner #savvybusinessowner #jewelrydesigner #makersmovement #customjewelry #thehappynow #createcultivate #bossbabe #handmadejewelry #shophandmade #craftsposure #statementjewelry #oneofakindjewelry #accessorieslovers #vintagejewelry #shophandmade #Sparklythings #Flashesofdelight #communityovercompetition #thatsdarling

Adding a new twist on a long time customer favorite... these herringbone wrap and druzy earrings have been a long time staple of Hippy Do Da. I’ve restocked my druzy dangles in both silver and gold wire (in time for spring and summer wedding festivities) but thought I’d switch things up a bit by making a few pairs with this pretty rose gold diamond cut wire. What do y’all think? #feedback. Limited stock. Not listed but available. DM for more details. (Swipe right to see photos dating back to 2015 😳😀💜 Where does the time go?🤷🏻‍♀️)

“Page 3” :: official #artstew52 prompt post. The book: On The Road, by Jack Kerouac. The scene: Sal and Dean head to a local bar to talk so’s that Sal’s aunt won’t overhear their goings on, “In those days he [Dean] really didn’t know what he was talking about; that is to say, he was a young jailkid all hung-up on the wonderful possibilities of becoming a real intellectual, and he liked to talk in the tone and using the words, but in a jumbled way, that he had heard from ‘real intellectuals’” . . I picture Sal and Dean, a.k.a. Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassidy, sitting at the bar and Neal going on about philosophy and poetry and writing and girls and madness; and Jack just taking it all in... . . #artinspo #smallworks #illustratenow #dailydoseofpaper #drawsomething #freelanceartist #fortworthartist #illustrationgram #sketchbookpage #texasartist #dailydraw #drawdaily #createdtocreate #creativecommunity #sketchdump #artinprogress #onmydesk #homeinthestudio #amdrawing #ontheroad #jackkerouac @artstew52 #page3 #americanliterature
