To the sea....

I have drunk far to much pepsi i think the sugar rush is due any minute. For the last couple of days i have been working and re-working my idea for this little book i am working on. Adapting my style and bringing in more collage i am using spray mount i paid £10.99 so i am determined to use it to its max, but i am so messy that i get it stuck everywhere, i think thats going to add to my list of new years resolution
  • Be neater, Its a definite must i think.

Above are just pictures from my sketchbook, today i am working on the layout of my first page of the book, which is a mixture of collage and drawn imagery and watercolours i haven't managed to put any watercolours onto the image just yet i think its because i am a bit worried i am gonna mess it up. I always do this....

  • Be bolder and more confident in my abilities.
Below is the larger drawing i am working on, it is of the landscape of the fishing harbor that my story is based on. The sky is collage, the little buildings are still white and drawn with pencil. Oooh and to the right of the picture the tissues that Jazmine sent me with my christmas card. They have come in good use thank you.
The images below are of my very messy shelf in my very messy bedroom, the two framed images are in fact cards that my boyfriend sent the first letters he has had the time to send in 5months so them mean quite alot to me. In the parcel he sent me soap (i'm not sure if thats a hint), a tea towel for my parents, it has allotment and veg on it, a bottle of home made ginger beer and my two cards. I will find out who created them and let people know.
