caboodle magazine illustration by laura redburn

a little while ago, i had the pleasure of contributing to caboodle magazine again. if you remember, i had done so before in their 4th issue. this time it was illustrating an article about men (more specifically justin bieber) judging women who love themselves more than them. self love and being happy in yourself is such a big and important thing. it’s not easy and it takes lhard work. there are definitely men out there that want women to be ‘theirs’ and that’s not the behaviour of someone that respects you.

collaged tangram alphabet by laura redburn

in a bit of a spur of the moment type situation, i recently decided to make something i’ve wanted to make for years. a collaged tangram alphabet! i’m obsessed with alphabet books (i collect some) and pretty much anything alphabet related so this one really has been a long time coming. it was so fun to make and definitely fits my style very well i think. i’m actually in the progress of making another alphabet related thing, but i have bigger plans for that.

polly collage by laura redburn

polly notebook by laura redburn

i shared this collage a while ago on instagram, and kept forgetting to share it here too. it was one of those that came together really quickly and naturally. which are my favourite kind of collage to make to be honest. i rely on instinct a lot, so when it just tells me what to do without really conciously doing so, it’s always a good thing in my eyes.

make your own custom washi tape

my work by

custom washi tape from wovenlabelhk

close up of scissor print washi tape
one of my dreams for quite some time has been to have some custom washi tape made with one (or more) of my designs on. washi tape has been a big thing in the UK now (originating in japan) and pretty much since it became a thing here it’s been something i’ve wanted to do.

so, when wovenlabel contacted me to do just this you can bet i was excited! i had recently made my bisect collages and knew those scissors would be just perfect on something like this! the process is easy, just choose your required width and amount of rolls, then you upload your design – they provide a template for your required width. this bit was super quick and easy, and providing your design is quite simple, it shouldn’t take too long to arrange on the template as they just need a short length that they repeat for 10m.
