Fairy Pattern Gift Wrap

Since Before Christmas I have really enjoyed having fun exploring  Pattern with an e course called ‘The art and Business of surface Pattern design’ taught by Rachael Taylor & Beth Nicholls. I have already completed Module 1 & 2 and for my Birthday Present I’m asking for Money towards Module 3. It’s really given me the opportunity to develop my style with the help and encouragement from new online new virtual friends. I would really like to see my designs on  Gift wrap,  stationery and  Wallpaper for Children’s Rooms. I as I’m designing a lot of Greeting Cards at the moment I’m able to add a new fresh dimension to my illustrations and designs.

Here’s just a little taste of what I have been up to. I would really appreciate your comments and feedback on my Pattern Designs Please?

Quad Exhibition

Monday, October 19th, 2009

During the month of August, I was fortunate to be asked by the Quad to help with several digital family workshops

Interactive Forest, Virtual Telescopes, Animation X & Touch Screen Games, I really enjoyed every minutes of the workshops and gained lots of invaluable experience. Before I went on holiday to Devon  I was asked to do Photoshop work- cleaning up the photographs that had been taken of the families artwork, there was a lot of plastercine models which needed their  backgrounds made transparent-in technical terms!!

I was also given the opportunity to submit some of my own work to the final exhibition, which would mainly be used for the interactive Forest and was delighted to be told that I would be credited!

As I’ve been really busy since I returned back from my holidays, I’ve not had the chance to visit the Quad and look at the final exhibition. I definitely  going to visit in the next two weeks as I’m really quite excited about it all!!

Please see the artwork I submitted, each element had to be individual, hence thats why the artwork is a little  random!

Do hope you like them……?

Silver-studded Blue butterfly

Monday, October 12th, 2009

I have recently updated my website and you will notice that I have changed my homepage fairy to more of a pre-school style.(which I’ve tried to look like me )!

If you look closely to the wings of the fairy, they have proper butterfly textured wings. The texture has been taken from a picture of a Silver- studded Blue butterfly that my brother was able to capture in his hanging basket, this summer. I changed the colour of the texture, by using duo tones in Photoshop CS3

I hope you like the new Fairy-all comments and feedback very welcome!
