Botanical drawings

On the 3rd of December I am part of the Mapua Makers market and I will sell my Plantain Calendula Balms for itchy skin and insect bites, also a natural insect repellent and a face/body cream for mature skin.
 I like to draw botanical pictures for labels to attach to the products and also to decorate my stall.
I really want to make my stall attractive and personal,so working hard to get all the illustrations finished and printed on time.


  1. a wonderful idea with your beautiful botanical drawings as labels to use!
    I wish you much success with the sale!
    Have a nice Weekend

  2. beautiful looking botanicals. Good luck with selling your wonderful sounding balm! Happy PPF!

  3. Hello Marijke, visiting you from PPF.
    I first of all wish to say how beautiful the portrait in your header is.
    Painting the labels for your products is such a good idea and would definitely appeal. Good wishes for your project and happy painting, Sue :D)

  4. Thank you all so much for your lovely comments, the portrait was done during a portrait painting workshop and she was the model and looked very French.

  5. Wonderful botanicals. Good selling luck at your show.

  6. You do such gorgeous botanical illustrations! Wow!

    1. Thank you Faye, I love drawing and fine work. But must say sometimes I struggle to get it right.

  7. All your work is so beautiful Marijke. I look forward to seeing you later in November and will definitely be at the Mapua Makers Market. Stephanie x

  8. The botanical drawings are beautiful and I'm sure your stall looks awesome!
