Who doesn’t love stumbling upon mushrooms on a woodland walk? In this six-page craft feature, for the September issue of LandLove magazine, I use the fabulous fungi as inspiration for colour crafts.
I thought I’d share some of my recent craft features from my ongoing series in Dog’s Monthly Magazine. I hope any pet parents out there feel inspired to get crafty!
I’m currently working on a series of tutorials for Reloved Magazine – The Creative Guide To Upcycling Your Home. The first of these pieces, a tutorial on transforming lacklustre plant pots into little works of art with mosaic, has published in Issue 45.
Regular followers of my blog will know that making makes me happy, so it’s lovely to be working with Reloved. Hopefully I’ll manage to inspire others to get their craft on!
I love upcycling – repurposing unwanted items is good for the environment and good for the sole. In this tutorial for Dogs Monthly magazine I show readers how to turn an old jumper into a cosy dog bed. Why not have a go yourself – it’s super simple.

April’s edition of Dog’s Monthly magazine sees me show readers how to use polymer clay to create a funky and functional ID tag for their dog.
In my latest feature for Autographer, I get together with nine other photography experts and get them to share their top tips for doing well in competitions.
Lee Thompson, freelance editorial photographer shared this tip: “Don’t over edit. If you need to edit a picture too much, it’s not a very good picture to start with! There is nothing worse than a heavily photoshopped picture. Competition judges are really clamping down on over edited images after last year’s World Press winning picture came under some controversy by several picture forensic experts, who said the picture had been heavily altered.”

To a certain extent, improvements in smartphone camera technology have killed the need for a compact camera. That’s great news for us consumers, because it’s one fewer gadget to buy and carry, but what about prints?
It’s great to be able to email photos straight from your phone or share on social media sites but – call us sentimental if you like – you just can’t beat having your most memorable moments immortalised in physical, papery form. In this in depth tutorial for TechRadar.com I show readers how. Click here to take a look.
