Valentines Day…

It takes a lot for me to add a second title in my posts, so to all you valentines day lovers that ones for you : )

personally Im not into the whole valentines day thing, it’s a nice gesture BUT its a waste of money no? Or maybe I am super cynical… Hmm a thought to ponder.

Thought about it and no I am not cynical I am lovely and if you want to share your affections ¬†that’s up to you. Plus I have done some loving designs that could be used as card designs, not just for the love of your life but for your best friend, your brother / sister.

Hope you like them I used water colours, black pen and ink. I wanted to get super media crazy but I didn’t want the designs to turn out messy. Enjoy! (Feel free to email onto loved ones) Happy Valentines Day Readers : ) xxx

P.S this first pic is of some Roses, I didn’t have a vase so took some inspiration from a book I blogged about last year (contemporary flower arrangements)


How did the interview go?? Well! As it is something I have not done before I was honest about it, but won it back with all my strengths and strong answers to ‘real life situation’ questions.

KEY NOTE: Never get to an interview and say you are nervous, it shows weakness!

What have I been up to since my last post, having a few cheeky ones with friends in a small celebration of graduation, working and putting up my Christmas tree ūüôā fun times. Feeling very Christmassy and the tree is decked out red and gold traditional I know, but last year we did a funky infusion of ice blue and silver!

P.s I said in my previous post id upload my images but did not because I crochet a little pice in space dyed yarn let me know what you think.

Drawing figure, using a 2, 4, and 6B pencil, timed drawing of 8 mins, couldn’t do her other arm and ran out of time, oh well…

I love black and white, but my true talent lies within colour. So I looked at tacky Christmas tree lights to try to organise the colours to be able to produce a lovely stripped bit of colour. I think the colours next to one another work, they are not brash or tacky as they appeared on the tree lights themselves. I then happened to be shopping ad came across this wonderful space dyed yarn, which matched my colour strip perfectly!

Using my colours I started playing with resist effects of paint in oil pastel! I also used really watery and thick water colours which add depth to the baubles.
