Animal Alphabet – Crocodile

Animal Alphabet by Rebecca Stoner

I almost missed week 3 of my Animal Alphabet project so I'm sneaking in at the last minute with a couple of Crocodiles!  I actually did these designs a few weeks ago but have been that busy this week with my tax return that I nearly forgot to post them.  I had so much fun drawing crocodiles that I came up with two different designs.  First up is … [Read more...]

Animal Alphabet

Happy New Year and firstly...... Hello (you can get this design as a free desktop wallpaper by subscribing to my Newsletter here)!  I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year.  I had a complete break from work and any kind of drawing/painting/creating over the holidays which is quite unusual for me but I just felt I needed it.  However, … [Read more...]

Happy July – Free Desktop Calendar

July Desktop Calendar by Rebecca Stoner

Happy July! How did we get half way through the year already?! It's been so hot here this week that I've been doing a bit of painting under the shade in the garden when I can.  I wanted this month's free desktop calendar to have a pretty summery feel to it so I hope you like it!  If you'd like your own to download then you just need to subscribe … [Read more...]

Father’s Day Cards

Father's Day - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

It's been a paperwork and emails kind of week and the creative cold turkey has definitely kicked in! So before I take a break from the computer (at last!) to escape out into the sunshine to draw and paint, I'd thought I'd say a quick hello.  I have lots of things in the pipeline that I can't wait to share with you (including my new sparkly … [Read more...]

Art Daily Project 2015 – Week 10

Art Daily Project Week 10 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

I thought it would be nice to do a round up of last weeks #artdaily2015 drawings on Instagram.  I'm gradually trying to get back into it and managed to share 4 drawings last week.  The project has really gained momentum now and we have gained lots of new followers and also loads of new designers participating and sharing their daily creative … [Read more...]

Art Daily 2015 Project

Art Daily Blog Post by Rebecca Stoner

Happy Friday! Wow, where did this week go?!  For me it was in a blur of packing and sending out Etsy shop orders and working on a new daily project I've started over on Instagram called #artdaily2015  I see it as a way of committing myself to create at least one small piece of creative work each day but without the pressure of working to a brief. … [Read more...]

New Year, New Work

New Year, New Work Blog Post by Rebecca Stoner

Well the New Year has definitely started now and I hope it's been a good start for you all.  Normally I can feel quite deflated in January as it's still cold and dark and Summer seems such a long way off but this year I was really excited to get back into my studio and start work again. I ended the year on such a high with my new Etsy shop doing … [Read more...]

Happy New Year 2015!

Happy New Year Blog Post by Rebecca Stoner

I could't let the end of the year go by without popping on here and wishing you all a very Happy New Year!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish each and every one of you love, health, happiness and success for 2015.  I can't wait to properly get back at my desk (does that make me sad?!) and start putting into action all the exciting … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 23, 24 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

It's Christmas Eve you lovely people! How are you all doing? I finally feel like I've finished for the holiday now. Work all done, presents wrapped and not much more to do now than share my #adventchallenge2014 post for yesterday and today! I've loved taking part in the challenge and how it's pushed me to create a new design a day but what I've … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge – Days 20, 21 and 22!

Advent Challenge 20, 21, 22 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Happy Monday!  I can't believe it's only 3 days to go and I've still been getting orders in my shop and have a little design work still to do!  However,  I am managing to sneak out for a 'works Christmas cuppa' later this morning with my lovely friend who also works for herself.  I'm exhausted and sooo ready to finish for Christmas now.  How are … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 18 & 19

Advent Challenge 18, 19 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Naughty me missed a day and now I'm behind!  I've had a really busy week in my shop which is great but trying to work and pack orders with a bandaged finger has really slowed me down, so I had to let go yesterday (as hard as it was to do!) and not post my design.  So it's two for the price of one today, with both days 18 and 19 in one post.  I've … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 17

Advent Challenge 17 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Day 17 and I'm managing to keep up with the Advent Challenge....just!  Today's theme is 'Frozen' and every time I hear this word I think of my little 2 year old niece singing the Frozen song at the top of her voice and running round the room shouting "let it go, let it go"!  She'd be most disappointed I've not drawn anything to do with the film but … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 16

Advent Challenge 16 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

I loved creating today's design for the Christmas #adventchallenge2014, which is Gingerbread House.  I really had fun with it and although it's not exactly 'Ginger' (a Designer's got to stick with her colour palette right?!) I think it looks quite yummy!  It's a good job I was organised with this one yesterday as we had a bit of a drama last … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 15

Advent Challenge 15 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Monday again and Day 15 already!  I'm starting to struggle to keep up.  I'm busy juggling a big freelance project, Etsy orders and then trying to sneak in some Christmas advent designing......not to mention I still need to write my cards or do any Christmas shopping....just don't tell anyone!  I've done some pretty star Garlands for today's theme - … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 14

Advent Challenge 14 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

I really struggled with today's theme which is Favourite Christmas Colour!  I'm not good at picking my favourite colour at the best of times as I love so many colours and working with them all day makes it really hard to have a favourite....or is that just me?!  So for Day 14 of the Advent Challenge I decided to create a box full of colourful … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 12

Advent Challenge 12 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Happy Friday!  We're now half way through the Christmas Advent Challenge, hurrah!  Today's theme is Christmas Fairy and as I've had a sudden flurry of Christmas orders in my Etsy shop and a last minute freelance commission come in, I'm cheating a little again today.  This is my Angel/Fairy from my Christmas Cards which has flown it's way onto Day … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 11

Advent Challenge 11 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Day 11 and two weeks today to the big day people!  Don't panic though as I've not even written my cards, bought any pressies or put my tree up!  I know! Although we don't  normally put our tree up until the week before Christmas and I'm usually quite last minute with cards and pressies so it's not so unusual.  I don't actually have that many … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 10

Advent Challenge 10 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Ok, so is anyone getting bored of the Christmas Advent Challenge because we've a long way to go yet! I really hope you're not but please do tell me if you are and I can condense the postings into less blog posts if you prefer.  Hopefully this one will make you smile because today's theme is Christmas Jumper!  I remember my Dad used to have a red … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 9

Advent Challenge 9 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Brrrrr it's a very cold and frosty one here this morning but beautiful none the less.....well at least I'm sure it will be once the sun comes up!  It's a very early start for me this morning so good job I was prepared and created my little 'Nutcracker' soldier last night for today's theme!  I couldn't stop smiling to myself when I was drawing this … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 5

Advent Challenge 5 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Day 5 and I've created a (not so little!) friend for my cute little penguin from yesterday.....a Snowman!  Today's theme was 'Snow Creature' and I kind of went with the obvious as I was short of time but I quite like him.  I did have his smile made up of little pebbles but my husband thought he looked a bit sinister, so I quickly gave him a bit of … [Read more...]

Happy November!

Happy November - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

I hope you've had a happy start to November!  It's a beautiful sunny but chilly, late Autumn day toady so what better day than to share another new illustration with you!  This is my 'Winter Warmers' illustration from the month of November in my new Illustrated Calendar and I think it's possibly my favourite!  The beginning of November doesn't just … [Read more...]

Illustrated Calendar and New Work

Illustratred Calendar - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

I've been busy creating lots of new work lately and it feels great that it's work that I can share with you all as it's so often not the case!  Opening my new Etsy shop has given me lots of motivation and inspiration for new designs and products and even a new sense of purpose too when creating my designs.  Although I'm busy working on freelance … [Read more...]

Lovely Autumn

Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend.  The clocks went back here in the UK on Saturday night which means that the days are now shorter as it gets dark much earlier.  I hate the short days and long dark evenings but I have to say that this weekend the weather was particularly mild and sunny for this time of year, so it hasn't felt quite as … [Read more...]

New Etsy Shop!

I'm so excited to finally be able to share my brand new Etsy shop with you all!  It's been fun creating lots of lovely new patterns and illustrations and deciding what products to feature them on.  At the moment there are Art Prints and Greetings Cards available with a mix of pretty patterns and illustrations on them, there's even a set of Prairie … [Read more...]

Lovely Lurcher

Happy Tuesday all! I thought I would share another new illustration with you.  I felt so inspired after creating my Autumn Walks illustration that I shared with you last week and enjoyed drawing my lovely Lurcher Bertie that much, that I decided to have some fun and draw him again! Actually I had an excuse as it's my husband's birthday today and I … [Read more...]

Hello Autumn!

Well ok, so it isn't actually Autumn just yet and I know many of us are still clinging on to every last bit of sunshine but I have to confess that I love Autumn and it's actually my favourite season.  I'm not sure why, maybe it's the colours, the crisp bright days and cosy evenings before it all gets too drab and dark in winter!  I love going for … [Read more...]
