Wedding Invitations

Last weekend my best friend Rea got married! We have been friends since we were 11 and been through lots together so it was an honour to do the stationary for the wedding.

It was a fabulous day everything was just beautiful and the bride looked stunning all topped off with lovely food, drinks and dancing. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Horrocks!

Colour work

Here are some images of from the online e-course I am studying The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design. These images are all about colour, its good to take a step back and think about the way you work with colour and different ways to develop colour palettes. Working this way reminds me of university when we had to keep a 'colour book' throughout the course. I enjoyed playing around with different objects seeing how they work together and photographing the different groups. I have also used some of my existing photographs with colours I love to create new colour palettes.

I am loving the course just wish there were more hours in the day so I could spend more time working on this. These are from an exercise in Module 1 we are now in week 2 of Module 2 more images to come I will keep you updated on how I'm getting on.

Happy Birthday to me!

It was my birthday on Friday and I was ever so lucky to receive this amazing new iMac from my lovely boyfriend. I have had a macbook for years which I love but is now quite old and very slow. I have wanted an iMac for years but not been able to afford one. (He has said this qualifies for my Christmas and birthday presents for a few years to come!)

I have had such a wonderful weekend with my friends and family including lots of wine, dancing, family meals, country pubs, open fires and snow. Perfect!

Module 2 of The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design e-course starts today so I can't wait to get designing on here I love it so much think it will be hard to keep me off!
