Making Posters and Websites for Local Communities

I’ve not blogged for awhile yet I feel that I have because I’ve been doing it elsewhere!

I’ve started a private forum for Rock Paper Scissors – London Members and a website – very early days on the website so only 4 members so far – more to be added soon.

I made a simple website for The Stitch in West Norwood (hosted at L’Arche and these are all through the Lambeth Council ‘The Open Works‘).

We made a banner for the Bzz Garage featuring little dry needle felted Bees and lots of crafty floral items – I made the central Bee which I’m rather pleased with (not the text part) – the first version went horribly wrong though.

I have also been taking photographs for them as helping out so for someone who is unemployed I’ve been busy!!

I’ve spent today (besides applying to jobs) have been making up some posters that could be used as a fundraiser for The Stitch who will be selling items made by the ‘stitchees’ at The Feast at St Luke’s Church – West Norwood on the 7th June 2015.

Fundraiser Poster Ideas…

Using the Stitch logo I’ve made a poster – vector with textures added and a little ‘light painting’ to give the sewing machine some depth.

These are some other versions of possible poster designs… think I like the yellowish background on the above to feature on the ones below… !?The Stitch Poster Design

I had a go at using the above image to make some repeat patterns…

Caroline Hands – Painter & Mixed Media Artist

I’m also helping a lifelong traditional painter with all her work and photography – helping her learn Lightroom and to create her own greeting cards and to aid her creation of a book that shows her travels and the artwork she has produced throughout her long international career – you can view her work, and video created by the R&A collaborations at Caroline Hands 

She also creates Batiks and large Copper artworks such as these – love them!
