Bright and floral wall art

Just yesterday I decided that it was about time that I opened a shop on Etsy. I have been wanting to do it for a long time now, as I am a lover of all things handmade and I enjoy spending my free time making things for the home, so I decided that it was time to make the most of this and open my own store!

I've decided to open the shop with some art prints that I did back in 2010, which are shown in the images within this post. I love painting, especially when using bright colours and large strokes of acrylic paint on canvas - I find it very relaxing. One of my favourite things to paint are flowers and butterflies, and I have quite a few of my own pieces around the home. I just find that floral prints can brighten up any room, adding a touch of colour and happiness to a room. 

 I have sold a few prints on Ebay in the past, but I just love the concept of Etsy, and I also enjoy wasting a lot of my time looking at other peoples stores, and seeing how talented some people really are. I am hoping to really expand my store, by also including handmade accessories, as well as a wide selection of more prints (if these are successful!). As you may of seen from my other post, I really enjoy crocheting and knitting, so I could even make some bits to sell on Etsy that have been crocheted - my mind is full of so many ideas!

While you are on there, take a look at some of the other shops and if you are feeling inspired, then why not create your own store? You may as well give it a go and see how you get on :)
