Scanned in goodies for samples!

The British Craft Trade Fair

Hello everyone, just a quick update! Went for the day out yesterday to the British Craft Trade Fair in harrogate and really enjoyed it. Saw some fabulous artwork and i feel really inspired by what i saw. Although some of the people there where rude, there was some lovely people that i had spoken to and I am really pleased on how it all went!
Now to get cracking with my project, drawing, sampling, designing - the list is endless!

Lets get started....

one of my pages from my sketchbook....

My new best friend; Photoshop!

So the past week or so I decided to have a play with Photoshop by downloading the trial. I have so far made some really good progress with it and I am very proud of myself for doing so! (i am terrible with photoshop/anything computer wise!) I think I might just buy the full thing soon! I have really enjoyed using it.

Also on another little update I have figured out for this new project of 'childhood memories' I am just going to carry on testing out a range of different techniques and processes to get to the next step which is when I will narrow it down to focus on what I will be making for my final piece(s)! 
Going to have a read online now to see if I can find anything interesting to do technique wise to test out. Wish me luck! Also if you have any good websites that you know of please let me know.

Having a bit of trouble finding some lovely inspirational artists anyone have any suggestions?
First day back at university yesterday and had SDS all day continuing on with some of my design boards from home I need some motivation, cannot find any artists anywhere that have inspired me whatso ever. Feeling a little bit down and blue but im sure it will wear off and I will be back to normal when I get back into the swing of things!

xmas break!

So, off for three weeks for xmas break which isnt brilliant because i would much rather be sat in my bay in uni getting work done rather than at home, gah. Still going to have to sit and do some typing and drawing and whatnot! Going to head off and do some sketchbook work x
