my etsy shop is back! over the weekend i did try and set up my own shop via various sources but it was too much of a headache, and so i settled back with etsy. you can still buy prints, iphone cases, tshirts etc via my society6 shop, but the etsy will be more for original pieces and other handmade things in the very near future. i’ll be adding more collages over the next few days, so remember to keep checking back. i may do limited edition prints at some point, but right now i don’t have the funds for that. all the more reason to buy or commission an original piece! if you want to talk about anything else in regards to purchasing work, or just want to ask me something, feel free to email me here. read this post
etsy and new blog (kind of) was last modified: 11:00 by laura redburn
as promised here’s the second installment of some of my favourite pinterest finds. these are from my clothes & accessories
board, and art & illustration, respectively. if you ever happen to be shopping for a present for me (i doubt that, but you never know) i feel my boards are representative of my tastes, so they’d definitely be a good guide if you’re stuck for ideas. read this post

i thought this would be a good thing to do every now and then, to share images from around the ‘net that i like/love, and things that inspire me. also because i just want to share. i don’t want to commit myself to something i potentially may not remember to do or stick to, so i’ll stick with ‘every now and then’ and see where it goes from there.
todays pick is from some of my pinterest boards. pinterest is addictive, isn’t it! you can find me here if you are so inclined. i’ll be posting two today and two tomorrow, so come back! if you follow me on twitter i’ll be posting a link to it. if you don’t, follow me here.
i definitely have a fondness for ampersands. i’m not quite sure what it is about them, but they just make me feel good somehow. this one by darren booth is particularly fine! i’ve also noticed that i’m quite drawn to single letter typography/lettering over quotes and such, i think it’s because they look a bit more graphic and bold ..but that doesn’t mean i don’t love quotes etc.
that rug is pretty fantastic, no? i love the colours and relatively simple look. i really want and/or will need a wall height bookcase someday. i love books of all types (but especially art and visual books) and can see that one day i will be buried underneath them all. when i have my own home that i can decorate however i want, i can’t decide whether i want something bursting with colour and texture or something that is for the most part black, white and grey, but with occasional pops of colour. time will tell!

for those of you that are new and don’t know me, my name is laura redburn, and i’m a mixed media collage artist/illustrator. though i am interested in other things such as typography, graphic design, photography, bookmaking, stamping, papercutting ..and many more! i currently live in cardiff, wales and would love to move to bristol once i can afford to. that will be another new beginning!
anyway, onto why you’re here:
i’ve decided to redesign my website in order to make it more portfolio based, rather than blog/portfolio in one like it was before. i think it looks much better now, as i can seperate more personal things in the blog, from work i want to show to potential clients and such.
so the portfolio area will be kept clean and simple, and the blog will be updated with news, almost all things i make, thoughts, things that inspire me ..you know the deal. for anybody that follows me on my cardboardcities tumblr, i will still update that with new works as always.
