May I be forgiven..

 I've been a bit bad with time keeping this week. So the brief was a lil bit of an after thought. May I be forgiven though as it was my birthday and I'm not sure about you but I like to milk my birthday celebrations for as long a possible?!
On Sunday I went to a very old quaint tearoom in Bradford on Avon and had the most delicious afternoon tea..

Then on the Monday we went to Weymouth and took a trip to the beach and to the Sea Life Centre, luckily the weather was dry just a little bit cold.. too cold for sunbathing anyways..

 So all in all I had a lovely birthday weekend, and this is why my design this week is slightly lacking! I do plan to re-do it and work on something new. The theme this week was 'Tribal' and in the words of my other half my design doesn't look particularly tribal!
So maybe back to the drawing board, but this was my design...
So we'll (me included) will just have to wait and see what else I can come up with!
See you soon
(I'm off to eat more birthday cake)


First Brief Done..

Well BOOM POW, first brief done.

I decided to concentrate on the beginners track as it was the one that appealed to me most. But I do hope to give the other two a go at a later date!
I really enjoyed this weeks brief researching and pinning all things tropical! Although, I'm going to start the next brief a bit earlier to try and get more ideas and creative juices flowing.
So what have I done? I hear you ask, I really liked the idea of combining tropical motifs like fruit with the idea of parasols and towels from above. Below is my inspiration board.

My final design was a bit different to my usual designs. It was a bit less hand-drawn I think (that might be because I did it in illustrator!).

I still managed to get a bit of faint texture in the background to try and emulate sand. Overall, I'm fairly happy with my design, I worked hard on it. I think it'll be fun to have a play and come up with some co-ordinating patterns.
You can see the full gallery of students work here take a peep there is some really amazing work :)
See you soon
