But you should really check out their blog or facebook page, as they do a much better job of explaining it then I do...
And if you've got any free time around their launch get in touch with them and lend a hand, I just might see you there!

Intsead of putting them onto the paper i spooned small amounts into silicone bun cases so they held their shape and just pressed them out when they had cooled...and then smothered them in chocolate!
Oh well sadly there are none left now or I'd have offered you one, how about a nice cupper tea instead?

The paper I used was far too thin and wrinkled up with the application of the ink. Other than that I just feel the colours are wrong...
I might try using some watercolours or acrylics on it instead; it just seems to have lost something that it had whilst it was still line work. But how do I keep the original essence of the sketch?

One of my other huge loves in life other than art and books is fashion. So I wanted to share my excitement for an exhibition of 200 of Vivienne Westwood's shoes that is going to the Bowes Museum in County Durham. It's going to be the only place in the UK that the exhibition is showing at before going on to Japan and America. The Bowes Museum is beautiful place and always has fantastic exhibitions on as well as it's own collections, and is well worth a visit should you be in the north east of England any time soon. As a child I always remember being amazed at the clockwork silver swan that magically appeared to eat the fish. It use to run on the hour every hour but to save it from wear and tear I believe it only runs twice a day now, so if you do visit be sure to time it with the swan's performance.

I also drew the contents of my bag the other day while fighting a small creative brick wall i'd hit (repeatedly or so it felt); lipgloss, one used tissue, mobile phone, purse and my small 'santoro gorjuss' journel all things i can't live without! Unfortunately i did forget to draw the pencil i took with me, but seeing as i had it to hand at the time i hope you'll let me off!
Oh and i have a confession to make...i haven't done anything with the portrait from my last post yet, but it is next on my to do list along with a tiger/pheasant sortof creature. But knowing me i'll just put it off, and put it off, and put it off like everything else in my life!
