Finally over

Well I have finally handed in all my work for my minor project, I am pleased with what I have done and hope that you all like it as well (but mainly the lecturers). But there is no rest for the wicked as we now have to start our major project as well as dissertation and organising our degree show. Its going to be a busy Christmas!

Finally finals

Below you can see some of final designs, so far I am working on five but need eight so am going to have to do some thinking. My ideas are based upon victoriana/coursages/vintage, hope this is reflected in my work. I enjoy working with paper to create new unusual shapes and add a different texture to my work.

I have now moved onto the development stage of my minor project, I am experimenting with fabrics and different techniques using leather, lace, plaster, embroidery and print. Its exciting to see my drawings become more interesting through print. I'm aiming to produce a collection of shirts, ties (experimenting with multi directional print) and maybe some samples, but this may change as my plans usually do.

White lace

Just thought I'd share this lovely lace inspiration. I love, love, love this picture. The layers of delicate vintage lace even down tp the little booties.

Elizabeth Williams

Elizabeth Williams vintage styled jewellery is lovely especially the way they are displayed on little boxes or lined paper

Change Again

I finally got my brief finished to a degree, and then my project takes another twisted turn in a roundabout way, but now I am excited about it which is a good thing. I am now working on a mood board to sort out all the ideas that I have floating about in my head.
the dandy or fop/ Victorian gentlemen
bits of cars and engines
old trinkets
pocket watches
flying machines/ trains and trams

watch out for a mood board hopefully this weekend

Welcome to my first blog, I have just started my third and final year at CCAD. Working on a concept journal over the holidays allowed me to put my ideas and thoughts down. I am currently working on my minor project, which I have chosen to do about the scrapyard. Looking at the piled up cars, depcrepid and falling apart, its sad to think of the memories linked with these items. Like memories being destroyed, the rust taking over that is both beautiful and destructive.
