Finishing off

Phewwww  Been busy for the last few days finishing off my professional practice work ready to hand in tomorrow. Nearly there n now disaster's struck! I ordered my photobook a week ago and paid over £14 postage to get the 'in your hand in 3 days' deal. I took into account the bank holiday and it should have been here only to find it's not actually being dispatched until tomorrow!!!! Furious n all they'll say is I would have been informed of this before I placed my order! ....... well obviously not or I wouldn't have ordered it!!!! I'll have to think of a way round it now.... if there is 1!  :(
My  photobook followed my journey from early drawings through to my final major project and I'm over the moon with it (when it actually arrives!)
Here are some of the pics from my journey through my degree

                                                      A collage from the early days

                                                       A mixed media drawing sheet

                                                  A screen print using foiling

                                                     A drawing sheet with hand stitching

                                     A small section of a hand embroidered 2 metre length

                 An acrylic painting from my final major project which I'm working on at present

                        Finally one of my designs for  a camisole  for my final major project

I hope you've enjoyed having a sneak peek at my journey. Thanx for stopping by. Hugz, Jayne xxx

FMP Drawings and a change of heart !

I was working on my final major project earlier and sorting out what drawings I've got so thought I'd share a few of them with you so you can see what I've been up to while I've been absent from my blog!
My final project is based on 'the secret garden'. I have made a 'brave ' decision following my tutorial a few weeks ago and have decided that instead of designing collections for the gift market I am designing prints for fashion fabric.......namely for teen lingerie! Big turnaround but I've already got quite a lot done in the form of designs for giftwrap... with just a bit of 'tweaking' they'll be just perfect!!

Hope you've enjoyed your visit. Thanx for taking the taking the time to pop by and hope you all enjoy your holiday weekend. Hugz, Jayne xx

Good News

Well over the past weeks I've been really busy bringing together all my work for my professional practice ready to hand in next week. I've taken lots of pics of my work to put together a photo book of my creative journey throughout my degree. It's been printed and is on it's way as we speak! Can't wait to see it!
Whilst all that has been going on I've also continued contacting various companies to ask for sponsorship for my final major project and guess what? All at once it's coming together- I've managed to get not 1 but 2 sponsors in the space of a few weeks! AND there's another in the pipeline! just when I'd just about given up ..... just goes to show! :)
I'd like to thank Crafty individuals and That craft place for their support. They both sent me a fab collection of products to use in my work and I'm soooo grateful to them. It'll be really helpful when I come to put my final collections together.
Thanx for visiting. Enjoy your Good Friday whatever you're doing. Hugz, Jayne xx
