Folksy Friday - Midnight Pumpkin

Its been a while since i’ve had time to do a Folksy Friday post but i can just about manage to squeeze one in today.
Having not used colour theme for a while it seemed appropriate to do so this week given all the lovely autumnal shades. I thought I’d go for something a bit different to the rustic reds and warm gold tones and have instead opted for dark/midnight blue and pumpkin orange. Two shades very suitable for a fast approaching Halloween and ones that work together really well. But don’t take my word for it, trust your eyes and see the proof!

Oh before i get on with the imagery, just a quick reminder that i’ll be offering free postage to the UK in my Folksy shop on all orders over £5 from this coming Monday (29th Oct) to Monday 5th Nov. That’s a whole week of free UK postage, so if you’re thinking about arty Christmas gifts this could be for you! I'll be adding a few new items over the weekend too.

Right now wrap your eyes around this gorgeous lot:

resin bangle "curry"

Turban Headband Midnight Blue

Retro Flower Power Earrings

Whale cushion in Delft Blue

Big Round Orange Ring

Blue Birds - 4 Colour Screen Print / Orange

Handmade Kindle Case City Scene Christmas Present

Orange Leather Orchid

Hope you enjoyed the colour feast.

Did I tell you I’m working on a book commission? Well i’m off to do my second illustration for it now.
Byeeee and happy Friday x
