Super exciting news on the press front! Very proud to have my Edith Piaf bird decoration/cushion featured across 2 pages in the prestigious French publication Plaisirs de Peindre.
The wonderful and very patient Audrey Higelin contacted me a wee while ago and asked me if I would like to be featured...as ever I replied with my usual dignity and poise: "HELL YEAH!!" and much whooping and skipping around the house!
I was asked to provide a ten-step demo of how I produce my little decorative cushions. I made this particular one specifically for the magazine I had the idea in my head for a long time and sparrows are a favourite subject of mine too....
...and as Edith Piaf is known as the Little Sparrow it seemed like the perfect opportunity!
