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

My friend Lucy Addison!



Here is a picture of some of her work from our last breif! She looks and uses vintage found objects and other vintagey things and they are seriously cute, check out her blog by clicking HERE to have a little insight to her world! x

Took a few pictures of my washing line in my back garden to stick in my book and draw from, I thought id better take some pictures while it was sunny and not rainy!

Update.



Here is a page from my sketchbook, one of my samples which is combining jewellery and textiles. Getting on well with my project but need to speed up as I have lots to be getting on with this week! Excited to start sampling 12 more samples from my 4 I choose.

I am loving the work of Laura McCafferty lately and I thought I should show everyone her work and how beautiful it is, also if you can pop over to her website for a few moments to check her work out. She is a surface/textile artist who does work on things around the house and lifestyle.

Hello, new term!

Into the first few weeks of University again. Everything's going well apart from feeling a little bit confused with my new brief but I'm sure it will grow on me and I will be into the full swing of things soon.

On the other hand I am so excited to start sampling and testing!

Saturday, 12 March 2011

so, as you can probably tell from my first few posts, yesterday i changed my collection theme to 'oh i do like to be beside the seaside' instead of just 'Travel' i thought that was too much of a broad subject to really research on so i decided to narrow it down to one or two subjects that stand out to me. I have some brilliant ideas planned out in my head already of what my collection is going to be like i just need to get them down in my book, guess what i'm going to be doing for the next 4 hours.....

This artist is Gillian Bates, found on the website above i really like this artist because her work is really simple with a lot of detail yet it really appeals to me. I'm feeling very inspired today!
also found some more cute artists couldnt find out much about this woman but her work is brilliant by a woman called Jane.

Another few products i found on this website http://www.folksy.com/shops/handmadefromtheheart that are also really good.

found this amazing artist just by luck by searching 'oh i do like to be beside the seaside' into google and thought i would pop this up here for you all to have a look at, really good work.

At the moment in university we are doing a live brief and the brief i picked to do was 'Bon Voyage', iv been doing a lot of research into it and i have found some brilliant arists.This first artist is a lady called Rowena Murray who specifies in Jewellery. One of her projects was these plane brooches which i thought where interesting as i could use them as inspiration in my project. The next artist i found was a textile based artist called Tara Badcock. She also done a collection of cushions which also specified in the 'Bon Voyage' theme.
