While we are on the topic of lovely papier mache creatures (see yesterday's post on Julie Arkell), some weeks ago I found a wonderful blog called do you mind if i knit, written by artist and illustrator Vanessa Cabban. Now this is not a new blog, so I wonder why it took me so long to find it????
Reading Vanessa's blog is like sitting down to a nice cup of tea and a chat with an old friend. I love her papier mache creatures (which she makes in this beautiful studio), she posts a tonne of photos from her open garden visits around her little corner of England (love those posts almost as much as her papier mache posts), and she has a hilarious Miniature Dachshund called Douglas who pops up regularly on the blog.
Here is one of Vanessa's wonderful creations below (Sir Henry Brambles) - you can see more on her blog, and she sells on etsy too! Make sure you keep an eye out for Audrey and Happy Louise. They are fabulous!
