Rise ‘n Shine


With this resin pour I was aiming for a mix of coffee colours … latte, cappuccino, espresso. I made several blanks, each one of which is different. As I was trying to find a name for this slightly sparkly pattern I was thinking of calling it an early morning wake-up call, then Dave added the sunshine yellow section and the name Rise and Shine popped up. (On that note, adding a ‘pop’ of colour has become such a jaded phrase. In this case I think he added a ‘kapow!’ of colour.)

I could imagine being woken by my alarm on a Monday morning, making a cup of coffee, uncapping this pen and suddenly the whole week ahead seems so full of promise. Enjoy!

Update: The original Rise ‘n Shine has been sold but we still have some of this material and could make a new one to order.
