Rewind . . . . Being doing a little bit of D.I.Y

In the mad chaos of things, I also got to do a bit of house/dog sitting for someone and do some good old D.I.Y. for moving out.

Few samples from A la Chef annie:-

Looking at styles of kitchens and making the rest of the house like a blank canvas so i can let my creative side run free.

Printing. . . .

 A love of Relief printing.
When i am working and sketching designs, i am very passionate about what is on my designs and usually use Relief printing in my work.  The whole process of  creating shapes from my inspiration boards, tracing my design onto lino, working into it so then i can print on Fabric. Help me try and make my work - like many others distinctive. Luckily enough in my last year of secondary school, my work was shown at an  art/school exhibition.

Dollar Academy exhibition (My dress and some sketches are the black and yellow dress with lino print on it.)

So this Year for our college fashion show, why not do more printing with a 1920's theme??

Ha! This time i really learned about construction of making garments and that printing is made for FLAT SURFACES not already sew darts on the front bodice/ almost 3D surfaces. It was turning out to Mission impossible.  But lessons are always learned through the hard way.

Pigeon Detectives

Danced, Singed and got drenched from the amount of water the lead singer chucked out to the crowd. Such a good night!

Rewind. .

'Hey you, do you remember me?? '

'Yeah I'm the alcohol that burns down your neck and into your gut.'

And I'm trying to wrap up a fight that halves are stumbled to the ground.

Rewind. . . .

Strike a pose.

About a month ago (ha!) I was out supporting a family friend who was organising a charity fashion show to raise money for cancer research. The event took place in their town's local social club with local boutiques and self employed companies.
The show started off with a young, talented singer before the models came on to show off their clothes.

I wanted the black and white skull shirt! Please

The overall night was a success and was very proud for our friend on her achievement (even managed to grab a quick photo of her in the mayhem.)

- The night was a huge success raising over £2,900.

You would've thought by now, I'd have learned something?

What happened to regular updates, photos and posts?? Failed miserably.
The past month or so has been none stop, running on lack of sleep, coffee, mars bars and banana's - such a healthy lifestyle I lead.
Fashion shows, gigs, Summer music  Festivals, House sitting, Working and the currently in process of moving out.

Time Waits for No Man.
