Pencil rainbow

I've been planning this for a while but I finally got my rainbow of pencils finished! Yay! 
I've made them into mini brooches for all those cute stationery appreciators! 

Market season is over!

Unusually for me, I've finished all my Christmas markets for the year before December! I had three hot weekends of outdoor markets and I'm glad to be able to stay inside for the rest of the hot weather! Here are some photos from the Made on the Left Christmas markets which was in Forrest Place, Perth.

Cosplay in Sydney

There were a LOT of people and a lot of good costumes at Sydney Oz Comic-Con which always makes things interesting. Here are a few!

Tall Rabbit on tour

This September, Tall Rabbit went on an adventure to Sydney! I packed as much cuteness as possible and jumped on a plane to the other side of the country to go to Sydney Oz Comic-Con. It was a fun trip and hopefully introduced a few more people to Tall Rabbit in my plan for world domination!!

Letterpress magic

I recently did a letterpress workshop at The Little Press. I've loved letterpress for ages and always wanted to try it out and when I saw this workshop which allowed you to print your own design, I knew it was for me!
I decided I wanted to to a poodle design but then it turned into a unicorn poodle which I liked even more!

The workshop was run by Emily and Rob from their spacious West Perth studio and was a small group of six. We split into two groups, one setting up the presses while the other mixed the inks. We used one of two hand operated presses, called Little Leo and Lilian, to print our designs.

Everything has to be just right to get a perfect print which includes adjusting the amount of ink, the height of the paper, the pressure and lots of other little things. But it turned out well in the end!

After a yummy lunch of pumpkin soup and turkish bread, we had time for a little experimenting with the old woodblock type which Emily was lucky enough to find on a trip to India.

I had a fun day and would love to do it again and make a friend for my magical poodlecorn!
