Images of London

I've been listening to Jamie Cullum this morning while I've been working and his song 'London Skies' got me thinking of images of London.

I've blogged before about London, covering the beautiful pictures of Rose Barton and Herbert Marshall but this time they're by another artist called Nelson Dawson.

Nelson Ethelred Dawson (1859-1941) was a member of the Arts & Crafts movement who was born in Lincolnshire and later moved to London.  Here are some of his pictures from a book called A Wanderer in London from 1906.

It's funny, I worked in London for 12 years but it was all lost on me then.  Now I love the wonderful old buildings and the history of it all.  Must go for a visit soon.....

More free digital stamps

I was just tidying up my PC and I saw that I had all those line drawings of children still open on my screen that I said I'd post, so here they are.

I like the girl in the checked pyjamas particularly as she has a very grown-up look about her.  Have fun with these!

Free Fairy Digital Stamps

After being really good at writing this blog for a while, it's now been several weeks since I've done it - shame on me!  The new website, school holidays and a legal wrangle have got in the way with a large sprinkle of real life and hard work.  I'll try and be better although it's still school holidays and my daughter still wanders around saying how bored she is, which either makes me feel guilty and unable to get on with work properly or I feel the need to go and do something with her for a while.  It's not easy being a working mother, as I'm sure other working mothers will testify to!

But anyway, back to what this blog is really meant to be about - pictures!  Here are some nice fairy illustrations I found which would make good digital stamps:-

I've got some nice children illustrations too - will include those next time.
