Howard Robinson’s beautiful boathouse

Howard Robinson is a British artist with a very distinctive style and, if you look through his decoupage pack on the website, you’ll find a beautiful array of houses and cottages, he has been in the licensed art business for over 35 years.

It’s fun to make up the decoupage (I use Pinflair glue gel) but more importantly there are so many different occasions to use the cards. An obvious one is a new home card, but it could be a ‘happy holiday’ card, if someone is staying in a cottage in the country, birthday, thinking of you (as this card is) and many more.

If you are looking through the images and thinking, ‘I’m sure I’ve seen something like this before’ … perhaps you are a jigsaw puzzle fan? Howard licenses a massive amount of artwork to jigsaw companies and, having made up a few with my late Mum and Dad, good fun they are too. I love all the intricate detailing and of course the main house image – I love houses!

    Wonderful card Joanna, and as you say perfect for so many occasions. I love jigsaw puzzles, and every Christmas I complete one with my mum and sister, it’s become a lovely tradition. Creative Blessings, Tracy x

    Hi Joanne
    Lovely card , I love cottage scenes. I too have just finished a 1000 piece jigsaw of a cottage and garden scene.
    I especially like the Thomas Kinkade ones. Had to get up yesterday to break it all up.
    I sat looking at it for about an hour before I could bring myself to do it !!!

      I know what you mean Wendy. It’s wonderful to finish… but then you realise you have to break it up! Smiles, Joanna
