A piece taken from a college sketchbook, too good to be hidden my mum thought, so she framed it and now its on prime display in the hall. Its a montage of wallpaper samples and fabrics embroidered onto and drawn over in pencil. I love anything with a bird print or design! It kind of reflects my swallow bird tattoo!

comment and let me know what you think 


Walls of art.

The Hallway 'wall of art'. Put together by my mum who wanted to display art work by my brother and I! A good little welcoming into the house :) I love all the odd frames and disposition on the wall, its turned a plain wall into a whole piece of artwork!

Below is a couple of photos of my bedroom wall displays, I've kept them quite simple because my room is soo tiny! The Martini mirror is my favourite; a charity shop bargain. One day in my own place I will fill a whole wall full of frames, mirrors, postcards and artwork.

All images taken from I shall be taking inspiration from a lot of these walls!

Do you want some tea with your milk?

My first year of Uni is completed! It's crazy how fast its gone, makes me realise and put into perspective how quick the next two years of my degree are going to go! But I can't say I haven't loved it :) I've made some amazing friends and memories so far <3

The work is expectantly different, a leap from college but a good one! My second project was my most enjoyable, posed with the brief 'Vintage/Upcycling', I went about it looking at retro fabrics, colours and interiors, looking at things alone I thought summed up 'vintage'. I came across a milk bottle I bought in a vintage fair, adorned with a union jack and the words 'please return to the milkman'. I went with this idea of displaying a milk bottle as a retro item as what I think of as vintage. 
Creating covers for milk bottles, it gave them a new use, a way of 'upcycling' second-hand fabrics, printing on illustrations of repeated milk bottles and milk caps. They can be used to drink out of or decorate!

I hope you like them! I would love it if you could let me know what you think and leave your comments!
