Fashion Friday: New Job, New Room, New show

 
I had a job interview allllll the way back in July and got told i got the job on the 17 or so of July. I will be finally starting the job in a couple of weeks including trainging in York. Dont really know why its taken so long its been dis-hearting.

Got to see old friends recently and catch up it was nice and fun, started playing monkey island and the Alice maddness returns game. And a random vampire PC game its been okies so far even tho i little complicated.

Instead of doing a fashion/girly item this week decided to show you my new room. My parents were kind enough to get me a new bed and a new shelf and make my room pretty. Ive had my room and bed in a cluttered way for years so it really needed it.


Oh the things that have happened in this room.

Since i have became a book hoarder and collector of odd things over time i did need the extra shelf space.
Things such as ornaments and my Beatix Potter collection but thats for another time and another post.



Hoorah new bed!





Birdie curtains always the best! Like a boss!



 Im sure i will enjoy my new...space. Now on to fix the art room and it will not be kind.

Also the Charity Exhibition im in starts tomorrow so excited!
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cumbernauld-Cultural-Forum/185926861452503

I made tinfoilroses and bussiness cards for it to be taken for it.




 If i dont see you there hope you have a good weekend, see you on Monday Muse!

This is one out of 4 pieces ive did for a local exhibition which starts next week.

Heres info about the show!

The show will start from 24rth of September and will continue till 12th of November.

Its an art show and local craft fair with random things to do at it and most of the money from buying the art or gifts/crafts will raise money for RedBurn School which is a special needs educational school.

Heres their facebook
[link]

It took me a while to do this series which i like to call the

"Fruits of nature series"

wow not catchy at all :la:

But this series was about expanding my painting techniques especially in water colour and researching British nature/wildlife.

Wanted to challenge myself to draw things i dont usually draw as well and work on my symbolism with emotions and our relationship between nature and humans.

This is probably also the first set of consistent pieces of work ive also done.

I hope you enjoy them :heart:

Working and wishing on Art Wednesday: Be my monday muse's and finally what ive been working on!

For starters are you interested in an artistic interview about you to be posted on various networking sites with examples of your work?
If that answer is yes oh please go to this link and all shall be explained! Theirs no time limit apart from that i 'll need some interviews done in time for monday muses or i'll have to start messaging everyone the questions ha.






This is just to give everyone lots of chances/ways to do this.

Come on! it will be fun and its spreading the art love!

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Offt okies back to arty smarty ness!

If you follow me on the internet and my art youve probably noticed that ive not posted much of...that lately.
But this is because i have been working lots on stuff off the computer and keeping it away from your eyes and was getting better at the time.

So here it is all the stuff ive been working on and tonight im on a high of how much things have gotten better so here we go.

* Number one got news tonight that the tiny canvas i entered for art project is on show at a tiny cafe in Ediburgh im so pleased!


Check out their blog is awesome!



Looks so lovely and quaint need to get my butt down there and see it myself!

* Number two ive been working on 4 paintings for quite some time for a local art show next month (i'll post news about it nearer the time) Ive went and got them printed and framed and they were picked up today and oh my i couldnt be happier with the results!


Youve seen one of them before but ive tweaked it since then and each piece is based on the 4 seasons and humans relationships with nature. A bit cliche but wanted to try my hand at different colour palettes/settings/consistancy/painting techniques/studying humans and animals.
I shall post them propperly soon and ive to hand them in next week yippeee!


* Number three ive sadly not did much photography wise as ive been concentrating a lot on my painting/drawing more. But i have been getting really interesting in experimenting with photography as i always do at some point.


 Over the past few months i have been collecting old cameras and putting film in them and fixing them this is purely an experiment. But i want to see how the photographs come out from weird lenses/techniques. I plan to also get an under water camera and take pictures in rivers and the like. I hope to be working on these better and developing the film for my neglected photography account on DA.

*Number four ive been working on a stop motion project with my nephew using his Halo megablocks toys. Its been intresting and fun considering ive not did stop motion before but were nearly done and i'll totally post it when its finished.

*Other than that i still do my little fashion friday notebook and collab with writer. Also been cleaning out my room and art space riddiculously cause it really needs it and has been neglected.


Found so much art supplies and work from yesteryear! Need to work out my space better so i can work on stuff more again cause my poor esty is really neglected and ran away from home boo!

  Meet my floor with clothes on it.

Kermiee! Kermiee! Kermiee!



Taking tips on storage and organisation and colour!



Colour is also very important for making art and they have full colour charts in this book and its been an interesting lesson.

Time for some more de cluttering and getting back into more art and fun times!
Autumn is coming i cant wait bring on the pretty leaves nyaaaaaaa!

See you on fashion friday and i'll love you forever if you be part of my monday muse!

Movie, Music, and Muse Monday: It's YOU!


Been doing Monday Muse for a while I do love sharing my interests and inspirations with you all very much indeed!

Was having a think recently about how I could repay everyone who supported me during my rough and bad times. All of your support has inspired me as a person and artist to continue and have hope and so does the work you all post.

Now I want to support YOU beyond your work and comments and decided to do this through doing interviews based on you as an artist/friend!

I shall then post the answers to the questions you will answer and then YOU will be the new Monday Muse posts!

You don’t have to just be a drawing/painting artist cause all creative work is considered important including photography/sculpture/digital/mixed
media/writing etc.

If you would like to be part of my Monday Muses posts please copy-paste the questions into the comments with your answers and then I shall start

posting them on Mondays. And ofcourse I’ll let you know when your questions and art will be posted on DA/blogger/tumblr!

Here is the questions.

1) What’s your name/username/artist persona?

2) How long have you been doing/interested in art?

3) What media do you like to use or are currently using?

4) What do you like to show or convey when you make new work?

5) What do you enjoy creating the most?

6) What influences you such as other artists/styles/muses?

7) Are you working on anything just now or plan to in the future?

8) What are your dreams and goals?

9) Any Advice for other artists or readers?

10) Where can internet peeps find you or your work on the web?

Hope you like the questions and I’ll add examples of your work when their also posted or if there is any paritcular work you want to show please link me in the comments!
If you have any questions about this please ask away and hope you all have fun with this as much as I will.

See you on working and wishing on art wed!

Fashion Friday: Moving doodle and less stress



 Wore this when was helping lovelys move flats a couple of months ago the top was a gift and it is lovely and sweet. Craving to move out myself but cant till my job gets sorted or i dare tread the dangerous world of uni and life.

Thing are a little less stressful because of lovely company and some less things to get finished as i pick up my framed prints next week. I still always wonder what i do wrong as a blogger *le sigh* maybe i dunno how to make friends/arty friends even online.


Wore this today the belt came from a charity shop and the dress/top is meant to be for 13 year old's dunno if thats a good thing or not. least it covers my lanky arms and gives me invisible curves. Need a haircut as well but been to busy to even get one waaaah!

So full of food today and spent a relaxing day playing strangers wrath and guinea pigs. Made home made pizza and had a blankie with me all day. Had quality time with my lovely's family as well which made such a nice change from home and hiding in my room.




Karboot tomorrow and getting home by night to sort things out at home whoopee!
Hope you all have a good weekend! <3
