Happy World Book Day!

In case you didn't know, books are amazing! I love everything about books; reading them to my daughter, going to our local book shop and library to look at all the new books, staying up late because I have to finish the one I'm reading, but I especially love illustrating books!

Trends Workshop Pt 2

I wanted to share my last two projects from Design Garden's 2015 Trends Workshop. I knew week 3 was going to be the tough one. Last year I really struggled with wreaths, so this year I really wanted to kick it up a notch. I am quite pleased with the result. 

My third assignment focused on Studied Fern and Woodland Fables. The Woodland Fables trend was my favorite from the start of the class! 

And the final week I wanted to create a set for boys since most of my work is kind of girly. I focused on the Adventure with a little Friendly Tiger trend. 

Overall, I came out of this workshop with a handful of new pieces for my portfolio and now I am super inspired to incorporate some of the trends into my current work. What inspired me most about this class was my classmates - everyone was sharing such amazing work that it pushed me to make mine that much better. Each week's lesson was very informative and the video meetings were a hoot. I loved seeing everyones faces!
