Look what’s in the pumpkin patch 🎃 . . No foxes today but I’m keeping the orange theme going. . . This week my subscription box community all received their monthly surprise and October was this cheeky mosaic pumpkin... a perfect Autumnal activity. . . If you didn’t know already, I run a subscription box service and my subscribers get a monthly surprise mosaic to make. It’s the perfect opportunity to invest in yourself with a little creative treat. You can put the kettle on, have a bit of “you” time and the best bit is, all the materials and instructions are sent straight to you, through the post. . . . A few weeks ago I asked what you thought it would be this month and well done to the following people who all guessed correctly, it was, indeed a pumpkin 🎃 @katieloveskittycats @byefield @julie.lacey.56 @paperpanda68 @kerrismerkitt . . Now, what do you think November will be? Why not sign up and be the first to find out?

“Autumn Days 🍂🍁🍄 . . ....when the grass is jewelled, ✨ and the silk inside a chestnut shell”. 🌰 . . Autumn always reminds me of that song, that we used to sing in assembly at school. Did anyone else sing it? . . Everyone seems to be sharing photos of leaves, pumpkins and chestnuts on the Gram, so for fear of missing out, I thought I’d join in. But for me, Autumn hasn’t really started yet. I live in the beautiful Forest of Dean and Autumn starts when all of the trees have turned golden or orange and at the moment, it’s still very green around here, but it’s definitely on the turn! Here are some leaves I found on a walk yesterday with my Mr Fantastic Fox 🦊 . . What do the trees look like where you are? . . #autumndays #autumn #helloautumn #seasons #changeinseason #leaves #crispleaves #goldenbrown #forestofdean #deanwye #fantasticmrfox #fox #projectoftheday #craftastherapy #sharinghandmadejoy #colourmyeveryday #colourmeeveryday #rachelshilston #eclecticartist #creativefacilitator #inspiringcreativity at Rachel Shilston - Inspiring Creativity

This loops are following me for quite a while. They kind of keep coming back to me... whenever I put my pen on paper they just flow out of its tip 😅 So I decided to give them credit and devote them a series 😀 So this is loop painting number 2 🤩⠀ at Aarau, Switzerland

Bromley and Bouverie | A while back I was in a bit of a funk about art and thought I’m not really sure what my style is, need to spend more time on it etc. Then I stumbled on a piece a couple of days later which just jumped out at me and had a little metallic injection. It made me realise as long as you like it and it resonates with you that’s all that really matters, if it has a story behind it even better. _ I then very happily came across @bromley_and_bouverie and realised I adore abstracts they’re my first go to. Imogen’s work is so beautiful such a talented lady, see Cliff Face it’s my top favourite. She’s very kindly loaning me a piece for my set @granddesignstv and I can’t wait to see it in the flesh. _ What’s really special is that you can work with Imogen to commission an entirely bespoke piece right from the beginning of your project, all completely in line with your room scheme and colour palette. Pretty fabulous. _ Be sure to check out her work and I’ll add some gorgeous picks to stories too. ✨ 🖼 at Derby

A spot of color on this fall day. Custom dyed merino wool skeins. You know, I can never describe what kind of artist I am because I like working with every kind of media and medium. But who can resist merino wool? #Yum #Fiberarts #eclecticartist #cannotdecide #ohwell

And I’m spending another day on my Entrepreneur #acclerator programme with the cool guys at @natwest Could it get any better?! . . I’ve worked out that in 2 years time, I’ll be 50, @lilyshilstonx will be 21 the day before and @mollieshilston will be 18 in the August. 2021 looks like it’s going to be a fun year!

I can see a rainbow 🌈 . . Yesterday, whilst procrastinating, I decided to sort my clothes into the colours of the rainbow (as you do when you’re avoiding more important tasks). And it got me thinking..... . . I’ve often used the quote “Be a Flamingo in a flock of Pigeons”, I’ve always loved the idea that it’s good be a little bit different from everyone else .... but then when I saw my wardrobe arranged like this, I realised that why stick with just pink, we need to appreciate the whole rainbow. . . So in future I’ll be using the “Be a Rainbow Lorikeet in a flock of Pigeons” analogy, I think that’s far more fitting!! Swipe left to see what I mean! . . What colour of the rainbow are you wearing today? . . #bearainbowlorikeet #bearainbow #rainbow #standout #bedifferent #bringcolourtogrey #colourmyeveryday #colourmeeveryday #colourismyjam #colourismyjoy #rachelshilston #eclecticartist #creativefacilitator #inspiringcreativity

You may have noticed a ‘radio silence’ from me in the past few months. I’ve had a major shift around in my life. But I’m pleased to say the creative juices are flowing once more and I feel ready to share again. So stay posted for one-off cat/dog Xmas cards (currently in production-see mess/organised chaos!) new random little clay heads, pendants, brooches and anything else that pops into my head and out through my hands! #collageartist #collageart #cutandpaste #eclecticartist #mixedmedia #mixedmediaartist #cornishart #cornishartist #penzancestudios at Penzance, Cornwall

Sunday? More like Rainday. . . . It’s damp and dreary here, so after a crazy couple of weeks and a crazy few more to come, today is all about taking it easy and staying out of the drizzle and for now, that means chillaxing in bed with my tea and Nice biscuits. . . Which brings me on to a very important question. Do you dunk? Here’s a revelation for you.... I’m a Dunking Virgin, I’ve never “done it”. I like to enjoy my biscuits with a bit of crunch and a good snap, just like Mary Berry or @paul.hollywood , not all soggy and sucky. So to dunk or not to dunk? That is the question. . . .....And, if you fancy having a chillaxing Sunday, getting your craft on and creating a pair of coasters to coordinate with your bedroom decor, then join me in my studio on the 13th of October for my next Crafternoon.

Feedback Friday . . . I can’t believe it’s a week ago I was setting off to the @thehandmadefestival for my first day of running my exhibition stand and mosaic taster workshops.... the week has whizzed by. To be honest, I’m still catching up from it, I didn’t quite realise just how exhausting it would be. . . So, for this week’s Feedback Friday, I want to know if you visited the festival. If you did, what did you see? What did you buy? What was your favourite thing you discovered and did you meet @kirstiemallsopp ? . . . #handmadefestival #hamptoncourt #kirstieshandmadefestival #kirstieallsopp #feedbackfriday #talktome #whatdoyouthink #letschat #rachelshilston #eclecticartist #creativefacilitator #inspiringcreativity at Rachel Shilston - Inspiring Creativity

This year has been tapping into different vibes while I dabble in re-creating designs. Modern day allows us to crown ourselves in an exterior moment of fashionable thought. Inspirations are too many to list! I just want to shout out to my amazing co-workers + head designers from the theatre for the inspiration tips. Grateful for the love to continue to express myself with style in my art fusions. Looking forward to sharing these new styles including friends collaborations maybe in time for online fashion week, who knows 😄. #stylist #hairdresser #artist77 #multimediaartist #visualartist #eclecticartist #satxstyle #artandfashion at San Antonio, Texas

A pencil and a dream can take you anywhere..... ...and even better if you have a cuppa too. Here’s this month’s surprise in the Inspiring Creativity Subscription Box which was sent out to subscribers just before @thehandmadefestival weekend. . . In England & Wales, September is the month where pupils, students, teachers and school/college staff all head back into education, so I thought a cute little pencil coaster would be an apt theme for this month’s make. . . If you’re not sure what our subscription box is all about, then let me explain. A little box of mosaic magic is sent to you through the post each month for you to make. It’s a surprise, so you don’t know what it will be, so it’s like a little treat just for you. All the instructions and materials are included, you just have to give yourself permission for an hour or two off from your busy life. We are all guilty of not making time for ourselves, so this is the perfect solution! You also get extra tiles each month and membership into a closed Facebook group. . . More details in the link in my bio. It would be amazing to have you join our Inspiring Creativity community. . . #subscriptionbox #mosaicsubscriptionbox #monthlysubscription #mosaic #mosaicpencil #craftastherapy #timeout #creativemetime #learnanewskill #metime #mymosaictreat #rachelshilston #eclecticartist #creativefacilitator #inspiringcreativity at Rachel Shilston - Inspiring Creativity

Abstract - Pop • I started photo art collages last year merging some of my favorite things. Taking a moment to celebrate one of my fav icons Andy Warhol I enjoyed mixing a photo print over a 77 abstract painted background. I used a picture taken on the set when I produced a music video for the band Thunder Horse. There's more to all invested that day, but in short here's to memories & creative time capsules! #photoart #abstractpop #popart #musicvideoshoot #artist77 #video77 #style #cameo #film #direct #edit #conceptvideo #visualart #satxartist #modernartist #eclecticartist #multimedia #warholinspo

@thehandmadefestival - that’s a wrap folks! . . Wow! What an adventure that was! I absolutely LOVED my time at the @thehandmadefestival I met so many wonderful people 💕 . . Each day, I ran taster mosaic workshops in the Green Skills tent and in total, inspired over 300 people to create their own mosaic coaster to treasure. That was definitely a highlight! . . I also had a stand, selling my unique mosaic kits and subscription boxes and in my little corner, I was surrounded by some very talented makers including: @ellebailliehome @dagnyd.textiles @buttonqueenshop @thetextileguru . @frombelo_ . I also had the opportunity to meet the lovely Paula AKA @thecraftylass and Rachel from @blithfieldwillowcrafts as they both ran workshops in the same marquee as me. . . I also bumped into the talented Christine from @sewyeah who was running her Crafty Social Club, plus @debbieshore who also had a stand and of course, the craft queen herself, @kirstiemallsopp . . Thank you to everyone who joined me on my workshops, made a purchase, took a leaflet, volunteered their time to help me or simply popped by my stand to say hello. You all helped to make it a memorable event! A HUGE thank you to my hubby @a_shilston and my incredibly brilliant daughter @lilyshilstonx - I simply couldn’t have done it without their tireless support each day. . . What a weekend! I’m now ready to sleep for a week! . . #handmadefestival #kirstieshandmadefair #handmade #supportlocal #independentbusiness #supportsmallbusiness #craftcommunity #community #mosaic #mosaicworkshops #inspire #newhobby #newcraft #makersgonnamake #projectoftheday #craftastherapy #sharinghandmadejoy #colourmyeveryday #colourmeeveryday #myhappyplace #happyplace #rachelshilston #eclecticartist #creativefacilitator #inspiringcreativity

It was fab to have the opportunity to meet the very lovely @kirstiemallsopp yesterday at the @thehandmadefestival 💕 . . She had a mooch around the stands in the East Shopping Village and we had a good old chat about the time I was on her @kirstieshandmadechristmas show last year. We also chatted about how great my tile nippers are and she is now the proud wearer of one of my enamel pin badges. . . For anyone who didn’t see me create a mosaic wreath in 6 hours under bright lights and in front of the camera, then scroll left to see the end result.... I’m sure the telly programme will get repeated this Christmas too 😉 . . . #handmadefestival #kirstieshandmadefair #kirstieshandmadechristmas #kirstieallsopp #girlcrush #onthetelly #celebspotting #rachelshilston #eclecticartist #creativefacilitator #inspiringcreativity

Feedback Friday . Can I tell you a secret? Today I’m stepping right out of my comfort zone and will be running my Mosaic Mayhem taster workshops at @thehandmadefestival . . Now you may think that’s not unusual and you’d be right, I’m used to teaching & facilitating and that doesn’t bother me. However, the maximum number I’ve ever delivered to in one go is 35. This weekend, I will be in the Green Skills Workshop tent each day inspiring 100 people all at the same time - Eeeeek! I will have a mike on and will be filmed for the demo screen so my wonderful workshop participants can see, then it’s over to them to get making. I’m hoping I don’t stub my toe and the whole tent will hear me effing and jeffing under my breath! 😱 . . Stepping out of your comfort zone is so important for growth and development, because if you just keep doing what you know, you’ll never challenge yourself and never know what your true potential could be. It may give you feelings of trepidation but feel the fear and do it anyway! . . When was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone? . . #feedbackfriday #talktome #letschat #comfortzone #outofmycomfortzone #feelthefear #feelthefearanddoitanyway #thehandmadefestival #rachelshilston #eclecticartist #creativefacilitator #inspiringcreativity

Hello Foxy 🦊 . . Life is busy. It’s important to make time just for you. Mosaic is a GREAT way to relax and unwind. My mosaic kits contain everything you need to get started, including vitreous glass tiles, glue, grout and easy-to-follow instructions. The more detailed designs require a tool but I stock those too. . . Always wanted to learn mosaic? Well what ya waiting for?!! . .

One of my biggest ah-ha moments I had over the last year, was how much I just LOVE bright, bold, vibrant colour and peculiarity. Not shocking when you look at my feed, but until the last while I tried to keep myself contained and produce art that was ‘quiet’ and ‘common’. Haha!! What hilarity!! (it’s ok to like all the colours and all the things!) I painted this flower pot the other night with 100% free abandon and no direction. Just throwing paint to let paint be where it is, ugly as it may be - and it is - and I love it!! Any suggestions to what type of plant should live in it? 🔸 🔸 🔸 #expresiveart #uglyart #uglyarthasvaluetoo #homedecor #crazyart #eclectic #eclecticdecor #eclecticartist #eclecticart #artisticexpression #abstractart #artfulobjects #befree #expressive #artoftheday #houseplants #plantlady #befree #lifeisshortandthenyoudie #mightaswellhavefun at Grande Prairie, Alberta

Ok, so just how is it Friday again? This week has flown by. How was it for you? . . I have been beavering away this week packing , packing and packing a bit more. I’m making up my mosaic kits to take along to the @thehandmadefestival at Hampton Court next weekend. This is a huge event, like a Glastonbury for crafters and every imaginable craft will be there - it’s literally THE place to be if you’re a craft lover. . . . So it got me thinking. For this week’s #feedbackfriday I’m really interested to find out how much your spend on your favourite crafting project each month. Do you have a budget? Do you stick to it? Do you intend to stick to it, then simply go weak at the knees in your local craft store when you see the latest crafty thing to try? Let me know! . . . #friday #friyay #letstalk #talktome #craftlovers #thehandmadefestival #mosaic #rachelshilston #eclecticartist #creativefacilitator #inspiringcreativity at Rachel Shilston - Inspiring Creativity
