Another news article mention for the Color Me books!

This article appeared on the NorthJersey.com website today:

It’s also been brought to my attention that the books were mentioned in an article in the New York Times today too, though I don’t have a link to that …yet.

More coloring books with my art in them!

Coming up in the Autumn is another book in the Color Me series – Color Me Stress Free, published by Race Point Publishing.

Color Me Stress-free

There’s also four books coming out from Michael O’Mara books where I am one of a few contributing artists.

All of these books are available to pre-order on amazon, and here are the links.

Two little books I made

TwoLittleBooks_AngelaPorter_Artwyrd_8March2015

I’ve spent much of the day so far making these two little books.  The smaller one is made out of one piece of 12″x12″ designer paper and some raspberry red cardstock with some strips of designer paper for the front.  The interior of the book has little pockets as well as places for words and pictures on the front and back of the pockets.  It’s not perfect, not by a long shot, but it’s a learning experience.

The bigger one is made from envelopes – I have blue and red ones that vibrate against each other.  I’ve decorated the front but am not too happy with it.  I’ve not done a brill job of putting the book together either.

However, in both cases I see it as a learning experience, and they are perfectly imperfect given that they are my first attempt at such projects.

This youtube video from split coast stampers shows how to make the small meander book.

Give Away!

Heart Card by Angela Porter

This card is 6″ x 6″.  The design is on watercolour paper and it glitters and glimmers with gold embossing, sparkling spots and patterns. The central heart and the outer layer are raised and shiny, thanks to the use of Ranger’s Glossy Accents. The green, pink, red and purple colours were added using Tim Holtz’s Distress inks, also from Ranger, with a waterbrush, and all relate to love, peace and harmony.  The design is mounted on a craft paper card and comes with a plain envelope.

If you pop over to my facebook page then you can enter a free draw to win this card!  I will draw the winner at random at 8pm UK time (GMT) on Tuesday 10th February.

Good luck!

Dragonflies and the New Year

Dragonflies_AngelaPorter_Artwyrd_1 January 2015

It’s the first day of a new calendar.

Happy 1st of January 2015 to you all and may this day and all that follow be filled with all the love, joy, creativity and good things that each of you deserves so much.

This isn’t quite my first piece of art for this new year; I spent time today completing two pieces of Scandinavian art for Michael O’Mara Books.  I got the 1960s work for them done on Tuesday.  Yesterday was a day where I did some mandalas for the third ‘Color Me’ book to follow on from the huge success of Color Me Calm and Colour Me Happy.

I’m certainly being kept busy with art!

The winter break is nearly over, and all too soon.  It took me over  week to calm down enough that the palpitations from work related stress calmed down and for me to sleep properly once again.

No doubt the manic-ness that is teaching will have me stressed out again, especially as it’ll be crazy with an Estyn inspection in three weeks time.

Taking time to meditate, to create, to write will be so important for me, as it always is, but more so with this added pressure and the fact that I didn’t realise how stressed out I was with work, and how exhausted I was too.

I hope I can stave the exhaustion off for a longer time this coming school term …

AngelaPorter_Artwyrd_31December2014I finished this one a day or two ago but couldn’t post it thanks to an internet outage.  The background is more colourful than it appears – soft yellows and oranges and pinks.

Happy calendar changeover day to you all!
