I tried to write this post with some sort of summary of the last few weeks, but I didn’t really know where to begin, and I’m sure everyone is tired of hearing about how it’s impacting individuals because it is affecting us all, and in much worse ways for some people.
So as the UK enters lockdown like so many countries social media is teeming with downloads, taster courses and opportunities which is a wonderful thing. I’m so inspired by people’s generosity and creativity. But to be honest I haven’t had the time to get anything that special together yet. All my energy has gone into responding to emails about cancelled work, looking after my daughter, checking the news and trying to keep up with everything while also keeping my head together. So I’ve felt like I don’t have much to offer on the creative front.
However, as my workshops are now cancelled and teaching face to face isn’t possible for the time being, I did want to do something, and I remembered that I already have some colouring sheets for people to download. They can also be used as papercut templates for those with some papercutting experience. The first is this kingfisher in flag irises, which I hope will bring you some joy or relief in these constantly changing and scary times.
I’m going to follow this with other colouring sheets and papercutting templates in the coming weeks. I’m sure making them will be helpful to me too, and I’d love to see what you do with them so I would love if you could use the hashtag #storiesinpaper so I can see them! Also if you have any idea of images or templates I could create for you, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch on Facebook or Instagram.
