Take a look at these gorgeous balloons by Bon Bon Balloons!

Stunning! As well as selling balloons as gifts, Bon Bon Balloons also dress events such as weddings, parties, pop up installations and corporate events. I am really interested in this aspect of design, and would love to transform spaces into something wonderful. Simply beautiful :)


Gosh! What a hectic time I've had as I have come to the end of my studies! I am now the proud owner of a degree!! :) 

I've neglected my blog a little but I am back now to keep you updated about what I am up to!

Here are my final images photographed and ready for portfolio..

These are my three finished 'flat' pieces that I am satisfied with but I feel do not have an edge like when I work three dimensionally.. I can't deal with the fact there's no depth and shadows (what is it with me and shadows!!!). I have colour coordinated them and considered several layouts, and they all relate to the fairy tale I chose. I suppose university is all about learning and I've certainly learnt a lot during this project with regards to what I am good at..and what I am not!

Here they are..

Caffeine, Redbull and Snickers!

O gosh! Where to start!! Getting my final work done has been a challenge to say the least! I have felt like i was having a creative block for a while and also frustrated as I was not executing my project in the way I wanted to. I've decided to pick myself up and soldier on and work with the bits I've made. I am happy with my outcomes, even though I am capable of a lot more (and I do not mean that in a big-headed way) I just feel I have not fulfilled what I dreampt of and this has been due to a number of factors, not for lack of effort. I have took the pressure off myself with redbull and chocolate and feel more relaxed! I think lack of confidence has stunted me a little, but I am overcoming this.

Well here is something I'm working on right now which needs arranging tomorrow ready for hand-in. If anything I've learnt I work much better hands on with tangible elements rather than flat, and from this experience I have learnt a lot about my own process and practice..I do not like working flat!!!! 

I have made a jar of fairy dust which I am going to label and put instructions on. Everything I have made is inspired by the story 'The Old Woman Who Lived in a Vinegar Bottle'. 

Keep on smiling!!! :)

current work

An image I've been working on today, quite pleased with it! Going to add hand rendered/hand cut type and a few other bits. After a few disastrous days with my project I'm starting to see light at the end of the tunnel! 

Added bit more colour, working on the type now!
