They've Arrived!

Wahey, as if by the speed of light, the last few of my ebay purchases turned up on my doorstep this morning! I was so excited, like a small child at Christmas...quite sad I know when it was only old stamps and train tickets. Never the less they are very pretty and its made me feel more confident about this project.
So there we have it, one compass, nine old (used) rail tickets, nine vintage luggage labels, a boat load of old stamps, all that missing is my partridge in a pear tree!

All 'ebay'ed' out!

After spending the last few hours scouring the pages of a certain internet auction site, I have finally emerged, bank balance slightly lighter but happier in my new purchases (or would be purchases in some cases)! Just hope i win those auctions as time is fast running out for drawing, argh!

A Fresh Start

After my brief introduction a couple of weeks ago I appear to have neglected my blog, what sort of a mother am i!
So I think i'll take this opportunity to try again...since today has been a day to organise my uni work load as well as my head, I feel like its a good starting point to update and organise my blog too.

A few weeks ago we began our third project of the year, Surface Design for Gift, which is linked with a live assignment from Hallmark...all very official stuff. Since then i've been struggling to find my feet with it, but hopefully today ive had a breakthrough, but only time will tell!
I have chosen to challenge myself by going with a male trend, no girlie flowers for me this time! Instead i'll be drawing objects like binoculars, maps, tickets and stamps to go along with my theme of 'Well Travelled'
Images will be posted soon!

What else has happened recently? Well, there was a little trip to the continent and back, which although was very enjoyable, was not very productive, whoops!

I also have some images of the last project, Surface Design for Fashion, to upload.
The theme for this project was 'the 50's'
