A distant memory................Summer

Summer has long gone in the Uk and next week is already Autumn half term for the schools, hard to believe. Now that I am using Instagram more often, I seem to only be able to update my blog once a week............I love instagram as it is so visual and there is no need for too many words. Sorry blog I will try harder!!
This week I finished some summery ideas that had been waiting in the wings!

My Perfect Sponge Cake...

I finally got around to doing an illustrated recipe! I been keen to try some foodie things for a while.
The lovely They Draw and Cook featured it today. You can see it here along with many other gorgeous recipes.
I have a taste for this now, I feel the urge to do another one!

Fruit Box

Every Thursday we receive a fruit and vegetable box and for ages I have wanted to create a collage of the contents, finally this week I had a window of opportunity and so I have made a start. Can't wait to finish it this week.

London............Transport!

I decided to enter the London Transport and AOI poster competition this year, it was a bit of a labour of love for me and good to do something on a bigger scale for a change, the final submission date was Sunday so I am happy I managed to complete it on time!! It was inspired by a couple of days trips that I did to The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in the Summer with family and friends. It is such a great addition to that area of London, I think I would go there all the time if I lived around the corner.

and so on......

I am still working on the poster competition but nearly done now, so some random photo's from my instagram feed instead that were taken in my studio space.

Time......................

Not sure where the time has gone but somehow it speeds by far to fast.
So since the children have gone back to school I started on something new, so here is a peep at the beginnings, you can see a few more over at instagram too.

A new Term

Although the weather is still sunny, the boys went back to school today so I guess it is officially Autumn.
The summer has been busy, drama free and really quite lovely but I am definately now ready to get back into a routine and normal life!!
The best thing for me about the summer has been taking pictures and instragram I really have loved that and my eyes are always open looking for new subjects!!

The world of Terrariums

Finally the annoncements were made for the GTS competition, 999 entries, with 50 designs going through to the next round. Mine didn't make it through, but I really had a great time creating this piece, I feel my style is moving forward to a place I want it to be and I have plenty of ideas for new designs. I also need to completely revamp my shop and I hope to have this available for sale sometime soon..
