I’ve been quite busy this morning. Andrew woke me up at stupid-oclock so I thought I’d draw. I can’t stick feathers in my sketchbook because I have to post it to the US. Customs and that. So I’ve drew some of my collection. Don’t know if I’m finished…I’m going to leave it and have a look at it later…make sure I don’t overdo it.
The cookies I made the other day were yummy. I might make some more tomorrow. I have so much clothes washing to do it’s unreal. Could have done some today but I’m preoccupied with watching a documentary on BBCiplayer…and everyone knows once David Attenborough gets talking, you have to listen to the wwhhhooolllleeeee thing!

Here's another one...well...aren't I on the ball this week? Two posts in a row??
I got this through the door a couple of weeks ago. It was where I made 100 labels for the zine Mail Art One. Hope you like it.

 I'd like some more followers please ;] It would make me post more often.

A Sneeky Peek

Here are some pages from my sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project 2011. Need to do some bits and bobs to these pages, they are not finished. My theme is I'm A Scavenger! I'm focusing on what I do best...finding things old, and bringing them together.

The top image is old material that I had lying around and some really old stamps that were made here in England. The bottom image is tape from a cassette, again what I had lying around. I like keeping never know when they are going to come in handy! The tape makes me feel a bit sick does crazy things with my eyes! Love it though.

Exhibition entry and some sneaky tags.

Well…I was helping out at emptyshop HQ getting messy and painting, so I decided to grab a beermat and do something for the exhibition. I also made some little tags, which I will hang on different places =]
Here is the beermat =] …

The heart in the speech bubble is my little tag for my art =] 
Both are lino prints. The beermat was then stitched all the way through…I know…I did stab myself a few times! Not bad for a nights worth of work!
Hope you like.

Fisheye in Somerset!

Well, as many people know, the other half and I packed our bags and went to Somerset armed with a Lomography Fisheye 2 and an old Smena Symbol for a week. We never stopped really and visited LOADS of amazing places. Had so much are some photo's. 
Hope you's like them.

P.s There are plenty more to come!

New things...

Well I've just got back from the lovely Somerset...It's 5am (I hate my neighbours) and I am 'forced ;]' to watch EastEnders! So, I thought this was a perfect time to update, because I haven't in ages.

Here are my latest illustrations! Woop!

...and these are my new Lomography shots. They are taken on a Smena Symbol.

The lovely Laura of Dark Self - Newcastle

Hopefully I'll have a lot more photos in the up and coming weeks when I develop them. Took a lot of film with me. Can't wait to get them sorted.

A close up...

Rise & Shine design. Spray paint, embroidary & acrylic (and ALOT of patience!) on recycled fabric.

Some photography

Managed to rake out some old photographs I took back in the day.
Put quite a selection on.

Yummy Ice Cream

Been quite busy, going to put some stuff on now though =]
Finished Di Meo's project at college. For anyone who doesn't know it's an Italian ice cream cafe thingy in the North-East UK ;]
I'm pretty pleased...marks back Monday.
