Recent Nail Paintings.

I've been getting bored of my nails very quickly over the last few weeks, and have been changing them every couple of days. Sometimes to something exciting, sometimes just because I'm wearing a particular colour to work :)

These ones were my valentines nails:
It's a white base coat, a tiny bit of glitter nail polish, then a layer of Models Own Pearly Queen and finally the hearts are done with my nail art pens (which I got from this seller on ebay)

One of my favourite things to do on my nails is five different coloured pastels, so I did that again this week.

I was in Asda the other day and came across some of those nail wraps that seem to be very popular at the moment, and I thought 'what the hell?' and bought a packet.....and was actually very impressed! They're a little fiddly to put on and the ends are a little messy, but I love how they look!

(Please ignore the gaping hole in my thumb in the last two sets - I was drunk and nervous the other day so I was nibbling on my finger and got a little carried away :S disgusting I know!)

I also bought this very cute glitter heart nail polish from ebay, which I had on before the nail wraps, but I forgot to take a photo of them.

Lastly, I recently bought my first bottle of Seche Vite and OH MY GOD amazing!

Some Crafty Bits from this Weekend.

After seeing this dreamcatcher photo on weheartit I really wanted to make my own version. My sister's made a few which are for sale in our Folksy shop, Wishcatcher Crafts but this was a special one I made just for me :)

I basically just used an old bangle, wrapped fabric round it and hung all sorts of fabrics and materials, as well as a few charms, from the bottom. I also followed this tutorial to do the stringy bit in the middle of the hoop. Very pleased with how it turned out! I might try and see if I can develop a simpler one to sell in the shop - this one has too many different bits hanging off it, which is fine if I already have all the stuff but I don't so it would wind up being really expensive to buy all the materials.

I also made these paper hearts out of sheets from an old book (I found this idea on a blog but I can't seem to find it again, I'll link to it if I do)

They're very simple to make, just strips of paper at different lengths and held together with split pins. A cute little extra in the corner of my room :)

Imagine That Magazine Feature (Issue 2)

I'm very excited to have my some of my photography featured in issue 2 of Imagine That magazine! I was quoted in their first magazine back in November but to actually have some work printed this time around is amazing.

As a massive Arcade Fire fan I was doubly excited to see Chelsea Cannar's work printed next to mine!

The magazine's actually sold out (already!) but when it becomes available again it's definitely worth checking out, some amazing artists and designers have been featured. Failing that, check out the Imagine That blog (which I've also been featured on!)

Snowy Funtimes.

Ok so I lied in my last post. It's taken me a whole week to get my films back, and they're not as good as I was hoping they'd be :( These were all taken on my SuperHeadz Blue Ribbon 35mm Camera and they'd all had to be adjusted in Photoshop because they came out a bit dark. But ho hum. There's a quite a few more to come from other cameras over the next few days.

Also, I apologise for the names. I lack the imagination right now to come up with anything more creative.

Just a Taste.

I just uploaded a few quick photos from my backlog onto Flickr. I took three films into Snappy Snaps yesterday (mainly photos of the snow) so I'll get them back tomorrow and have some more exciting photos to upload! I still have quite a few in my backlog (saved to a file on my laptop) as well as more that still need to be scanned in, but I'm too excited about the snow ones to make them wait!
