After a failed attempt to convert me to the sport of racing bikes, Mr A has given me a pea green dutch bike on which to roam the English countryside, with a huge basket for a camera, a sketch pad, forages such as this old man's beard - inspiration to add to From Sal's ever growing story boards of illustrations. Do look at what is already on offer at www.fromsal.co.uk, choosing special illustrations and scroll up ... I will draw my bike - though we do already have Claire's green bike, be it a bit racier than mine! Any illustration can decorate any card - good for personalised correspondence cards - or print - a name print, a special occasion print in celebration a wedding, a 21st, an anniversary, a birth to a 80th or 90th or 100th birthday - great for those who have everything they need and enjoy being reminded of happy memories which from Sal can create for you in illustrated alphabet letters and your own choice of special illustrations.
THE WEDDING SEASON HAS ARRIVED!
Personalised illustrations for a wedding. Earlier this year a friend's daughter asked for illustrations for her wedding . She sent me a collection of photos of the bride and groom and I depicted them zooming away in Charlie's old triumph, in a dress suitably vague but attractive, so as not to give a clue to what the real one would look like. This was used on the actual invitation and reappeared on the service sheet. I also created table place name cards illustrated with a selection of objects special to them. This could also be used to print stationary to use for 'thank you for my wedding present' cards. Just send photos and this can be done for you . Would also make a great special occasion print for the happy couple.
Here is our Special Occasion name print celebrating the birth of the new Prince Louis.
Old school tuck boxes have earned their keep
T is for tuckbox which has earned its keep long after the school years as the perfect storage for illustrated letter placemats. Here we are at Clem's fair in Wiltshire this weekend.
Clem’s Spring Fair
Getting ready for our 1st fair this year at this wonderful place in Wiltshire.
Happy Christmas! Thank you to all for your support and making 2017 such a great year for From Sal. To quote a fellow stall holder - when someone buys from a small business, a real person out there dances a real dance!
