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!
