Photo albums

Hand-bound photo albums for some friends whose sons host the brilliant Flixtonbury festival each summer. The design uses the logo from the promotional poster, or bits of it anyway ...

Southwold notebook

Here is a new design I have been working on, initially for notebooks. The geography of Southwold lends it to this format design-wise. I'm working on designs for other local places but their geography is proving more challenging!

Yesterday was a very exciting day. I got my Folksy shop (www.folksy.com/shops/Theleafpress) up and running, then my 'wedding plans' notebook was featured on the lovely Bluebell and Rosie blog's Folksy Friday picks. Then to finish I had my first two Folksy sales. Yay!

Leaf notebooks

Whilst travelling through the country last week I was inspired by the various colours of autumn and so decided to collect leaves to create a leaf design. This causes people to look at you strangely - understandably I suppose - so best to do where you don't know anyone! I was vaguely thinking of having a go at painting some of them but decided to adhere to the theory that you shouldn't try and paint anything that's always going to look better in its original form! The notebook on the right has a textured effect applied but isn't quite as bright. I'm not sure which I prefer.
