It’s been a whole month today since I posted – oh how I have missed blogging! (Not really… I’ve been doing my FMP journal online everyday, but it’s still not the same – I can’t really ramble on like I can here!) I thought I would put you out of your misery, as my last post asked a question: ‘What can you make with….. …A Morrison’s Value mixing bowl A metre of green ribbon An...

Here’s a question for you: What can you make with….. …A Morrison’s Value mixing bowl A metre of green ribbon An A1 sheet of green card An A4 sheet of red paper A black polystyrene pizza packaging tray A metre of white cotton material and A Poundland Solar Panel Garden Post Light?

Ana Serrano has obviously spent many hours of joy crafting this little town, telegraph...

I first saw the picture below on behance – a site which artists/designers/photographers post their work to get opinions etc This is how I got the attention from Trendhunter magazine about the Glitch photoshoot stuff ! My behance is here. Her work is so beautifully crafted. I can only imagine how long it takes her to make a piece like the above. Every leaf/petal needs to be curled or scored just the right amount so that...
