Back at college + I got a special mention!

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well :) After my super long summer I am now finally back at college.  It was so long ago that I was last at college but after only 3 days I feel like I am just about back on routine and it has been nice catching up with people. Our first project for this year is a waistcoat (of our own design choice) that we make to fit a male actor. We made a 1/2 scale waistcoat on the first day, just to practice some of the techniques our full size one will require. Here is my mini waistcoat:

The fabric was donated to our college by the West end show Mamma mia. Apparently they have some stripy trousers which are made from it- if you have seen the show you may know the ones I am talking about.  I am going to see the show fairly soon so I will be on the lookout! I like it because it is a bit nautical and reminds me of John Paul Gaultier's sailor style stuff :)

In other news my clip art jewellry-in my shop if you want some!:

 I mentioned the jewellery quite a while back on my blog was featured on a really awesome blog called A Daily Dose of Art. Here is the link:

The author of the blog did a whole mini series (you will see if you visit the blog :) on art and stuff that can be created with paperclips and asked me if she could feature my work! :D It was very exciting as I was put in the post with some other people who I thought had some great ideas for clip art related stuff :)

I am off now to keep working on my waistcoat work,

See you all again soon,

Bye xoxoxo
