I'm feeling a bit scatter-brained today, but felt it was time to pop in and write a post.
in case you missed it on social media, I'm happy to report that my entire birth flower series is now available in my Etsy shop as art prints.
Along those lines, I was pleasantly surprised this weekend to receive two messages on Etsy from different people in different parts of the world, asking me to design tattoos for them. This is surprising for two reasons 1) this is the first time anyone has ever asked me to design a tattoo, and 2) they both wanted birth flowers.
It makes sense, really. Floral tattoos are lovely, and meaningful floral tattoos are even better. I've actually been thinking of adding some floral ink to my body as well, so this will perhaps kick start me into designing a tattoo for myself.
Commissions are always a bit more nerve-wracking than just me doodling in my sketchbook for myself, but they always grow me and I'm usually pleased with the results. I'm excited to tackle this new design challenge.
I'll let you know how it goes!
A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
