Stay motivated

Been at home for a while now, doesn't seem like I've done much but went to Graduate Fashion Week this year...
Okay I know it was a while ago now but I found it really inspiring for my final year, although it also jolted me into reality of all the work I'm going to have to do. SCARY. But exciting too? I can't seem to stick to an idea but I'm trying to brainstorm as much as possible before 3rd year starts.
 My uni, Northumbria University, had a such a good display of work. A prime example from my course is April Bowden's 'Play the British Field' book, full of quality photographs. I mean just look at the sheer size of it, amazing.
 And obviously it was Father's day last Sunday! So I made him this simple card :)
Amongst other things, I've also tried to make the most of the summer by drawing when I can, like this one above, so hopefully by September I will see an improvement! I'll keep adding them here.

Jubilee Tea Party

On Sunday we organised a little diamond Jubilee tea party with a few of my friends.
We overestimated how much food and drink we needed, not that I could complain - the Queen would be proud, well maybe. I actually really enjoy decorating for small theme parties so if all else fails I could be looking at another career route...ha
Decorations in shops were actually quite low, didn't think people in my hometown would be so patriotic.
 Made different crown designs for our friends too!
