Review: Sharpie Metallics

As a “grown up”, I don’t have many reasons to buy metallic felt tips, but I actually needed something to write on black card with, and when I saw that Sharpie had metallic range, I though they could be just the thing! You can get a pack for a few pounds, so it’s not too… Read more »

As I mentioned in my last post, I found a great independent stationers (which I can’t remember the name of and isn’t google-able).

Then recently, I came across this picture… …and saw how great clipboards can look! They can be used really effectively to display things, whether it’s art; you could clip a print… Read more »

Been there, done that!

Look what was in today’s Do Something magazine in The Guardian. I’m so on trend after last week’s Lino Printing Workshop. Sorry for the wonky pic, I took it in a rush…

Grid lines (you know you want it…)

I LOVE GRID LINES! I don’t know why as I hate maths, but they do seem to be an obsession of mine. I think it comes from when I had a a grid note pad at uni and used to spend lectures doodling in the squares. Anyway, since then, I never went back! Here’s prime… Read more »
