New Jotter Journals!

QUICK UPDATE: I have been working on some new jotter journals to list in my Etsy shop and just put my first set up. 

These feature a print of my American Red Raspberry plant illustration. I look forward to creating more sets featuring other original illustrations including more botanicals, natural objects and wildlife. Stay tuned!

I love these little journals! Your illustrations are just darling. :)

Carol, I noticed that you have fabric for sale on Spoonflower -- a site that's become my new obsession. If you don't mind me asking, did you scan your illustrations and upload them that way? I'd love to design some fabric for my mother in law, who's a quilter.

(My favorite fabric of yours is the one with the daffodils on it. Lovely!)

Thanks so much, Sarah! I am having a fun time with Etsy :)

As for Spoonflower, yes, I scanned my drawings in, cleaned up the background/edges to make sure it loads without any extra lines or shadows, and uploaded them to Spoonflower. It's pretty easy to do once you get it scanned in. I believe I usually scan in at 300 dpi and then once you get it uploaded, you can play around with the scale and decide how you want it to you look. How fun that you would like to design some fabric for your mother-in-law! I bet she will love it.

And thanks for the kind comment on my daffodils :)
