My Cards and Gift Wrap

friendship is one mind in two bodies

hold a true friend with both your hands

a good friend is cheaper than thearpy

a best friend is someone who knows all about you, and loves you anyway.

Friends are siblings God forgot to give us

this is me and my best friend martin.
i have two male best friends, the other is gay and will appricate any best friend card you give him no matter how girly it is. however when i try to buy martin a birthday card i find it really hard as all the best friend cards are female and he is to specail to just buy a normal birthday card. this inspired me to create male and female best friend cards for my indivual options project.

Spray Painting...

for my most recent project i have being using spray paint, so every chance ive got when the weather has been on my side ive been out in my garden spray painting my designs ready to create into gift products

Tuesday, 3 May 2011

this is the project that im current working on, taking my old photos and turning them into stencils and spray painting the designs. i am going to use these spray painted images into gift designs.
this is an drawing of a gnome that i did, it is ment to be my uncle in a style of a gnome as his hobbie is fishing.

these are my gift bag and boxes for the live brief we were working on for hallmark. i did for different themes. gnomes, fairys, cupcakes and owls as you can see in the picture of the gift boxes. i made them all from scratch to create the gift bags and boxes.

these are my other to tops for fashion year two.
this is one of my top designs from year 2. my theme was pirates. i hand embroided all the anchors on to the top. i quite like the outcome of this how so of the anchors where very time consuming for how little we had for the project
i have been busy getting on top of my work recently rather than it being on top of me for once. i think im finally getting there. this year has been a busy year, with only 6 to 8 weeks to do projects. but i have enjoyed this year at uni. this year at uni has also helped me to decided what area i want to go into. after doing my gift project i realised that this is where my passion lies.
