My little page, Polka Dot Teapot Designs has been running in the background for a few years. I've been painting watercolour images (usually inspired by wicca, witchcraft and nature) and producing them as prints on a very small scale.
A current piece of mine (my herbs and plants info print) was very popular, and it sparked an idea. What if I put all these info sheets into a small journal, using my illustrations and create a customisable witchy journal, for those starting out, and those who may not be as confident with drawing.
The journal would be a planner type cover, with a ring binder, so people can easily take out, rearrange and add their own pages. The pages would be a mixture of info sheets, prints, positive quotes and journaling sections.
I put out the idea on my Facebook page, and it's been immensely popular. This is a project I'm really passionate about, but with the current climate, I need help to make this possible. If this concept and fundraising is successful, I'll be able to expand into other journals.
Any money raised from fundraising will go towards purchasing equipment to produce the journals and be used to support my business including (but not limited to)
Purchasing the journals, paper, additional printer ink, a laminator (for foiling prints and creative dividers) packaging supplies (boxes, tissue papers), promotional supplies such as flyers, business cards & Stickers. Some proceeds may go towards bills to cover the cost of relevant bills, for example I work from home & would need to use a fair amount of electricity keeping my printer running.
I would also like to invest in a Cricut machine, to enable me to produce stickers and additional items for the journal.
If you would like to keep up to date with my progress, you can find me on both Facebook and Instagram under Polka Dot Teapot Designs.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my page, and thank you for your support.
