New Design

So I spent the day yesterday designing a passport cover..
which then turned into a passport cover with detachable luggage tags...
with a  detachable leather wrist strap too...:)
Not ready to go up on sale yet it still has a little more tweaking.

My Home 2015


I think the new year is a time for reflection and a time to plan your year ahead...
Keep your Plans in sand and yer goals in concrete I was once told lol
Heres my plan..in sand of course!
Im going to be doing a black and white Harlequin floor ..
The whole floor in oversized diamonds..
I might use paint or vinyl tiles..not quite sure yet..
Red and white striped wall..just a smidgen not a full wall
and hopefully a new sofa...(chesterfield preferably, I am saving)
I want a fun interior...whimsical!
The absolute opposite of my personality which can only be described as a boring old fart!











Bedroom
Im hoping that in 2016 I shall finally panel all my bedroom walls..
Also fix the wiring in the chandalier!
and fix the moldy wall behind the bed! 
and the broken door handle...and...
Maybe find a real iron bed!







Kitchen 2015
I havent got any plans of yet for the kitchen, but it is early days. :)

Architectural Letter Tutorial

This has been one of those many projects Ive been meaning to do... 
you know the ones???
Heres how it came about...
I bought a new oil filled radiator online..
it was delivered in a nice big cardboard box ...
a box perfect for my project..
A cereal box just wouldnt have been the right size!
 
A 3D Letter S..
24" x 15"

                                               
I started off drawing the letter S freehand on a big piece of paper.
I really wish I had taken longer to research S fonts..
Im always the same i rush into every project!


I traced the letter onto the cardboard...
  cut out two pieces for the back and front.
I rolled and taped 2" pieces of card and glued them to the base.
2" is the thickness of the Letter.


Covered the top piece in glue and stuck it on.
I left it to dry overnight.
I forgot to take a pic on how to do the sides..
It really is the easiest part.. 
Cut 2 inch strips and just tape them to the top and the bottom.


DO NOT DO THIS ...
I decided to cover it in plaster of paris...
  It softened the cardboard and ended up in an absoloute mess...
  I had to strip the lot back to above photo and start again!

Chinese Finger Bowls

I went to visit my Mum on Sat afternoon in sunny Banknock...
As I was looking around her creatively decorated bright home...
I spotted the most beautiful chinese finger bowls in one of her display cabinets...
 she had picked them up in her local charity shop for £1.50..
I fell in love with them..
So she gave me them...:)
and I took them..haha
