This week I thought I’d do something different and post an illustration of my own design. Sometimes when I’m in my shop and it’s quiet i’ll whip out my sketching pad and just draw. I usually like to design things, especially if I see or think of anything that inspires me. There is a competition held each year in Jersey called the Textile Showcase, and each year there is a theme. This year, or rather next year since it’s held in March 2011, the theme is ‘Festival of the Sea’. So, I was randomly browsing through photos on my phone and came across one that I’d taken of a sea anemone last summer at the Aquarium in St. Malo, France.
My photo is a dodgy, blurry phone one, but I remembered how amazing and interesting they looked so I went and found a good one from my trusty friend google. I found this photo here, not sure who it’s by but I love the colours!
Usually local and UK textile artists/students will enter in wall hangings, quilts, head pieces and jewellery. Not many people enter ‘wearable art’ which I think I will be doing! I am going to have to work mega hard though to get something done between now and March! I’ll probably keep you updated on that!
I have a few exciting updates about the shop which I talk about soon too!
Hope you all have an amazing weekend!!
Lots of Love
