So its Christmas time now.. time for a little break and the end of my first term of Handmade graphics.
I really feel i've created a style and learnt techniques which i enjoy and feel confident enough to push further into my next projects.
British Birds was perfect brief to kick start us into this specialism and encouraged me to appreciate things such as Blogger alot more with all the amazing artists you can find on there and connections to other sites.
From the pieces i have created i have been able to update and style my blog, allowing it to show my creative attitude to Handmade and illustration.
I will definitely continue to keep on creating more work over christmas and have a beautiful, fresh blog for the new year.
I think i've fitted into this really well and finally been able to achieve work that excites me and wanting to created new pieces all the time, in and out of university projects.
I really look forward to the next term and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and New year!

These are a start of a collection of frame pieces i am making for my British birds project. i've used a combination of card, fabric and shrinking plastic. i really love the detailed pieces of fabric and they work alot better when mixed with different textures and colours.

For my project on British birds, i've decided to concentrate on objects related to birds and mainly on the Curlew bird.
I've never tried out shrinking plastic before so i thought i'd see how this would work with my existing images.
I like the fact i didn't know the exact size they would turn out and it gives a good balance of media and texture to my pieces.

This is a piece my sister Grace and I made for a present. We had an idea of mixing our projects together so this opportunity was a good excuse to do so.
I really enjoyed collaborating our work and will definitely be doing similar projects in the future.
