I LOVE print!

Ok, so I know it's been sooo long since I last did a proper post. Too long, and it's the same old broken scratchy record of I've been so busy! Design school has been intense, only to get worse in the next few years! (eeek!) But I've been loving it! 
...So, when I was accepted at Falmouth I knew two things...that I was going to specialise in mixed media and that I couldn't draw, therefore would never like print...I was wrong! I went into print with an open mind and ended up falling in love with drawing, illustration and the print process. I never NEVER thought I would ever say that! Everyone who knows me has been open mouthed and wondering if I'm joking when I tell them of my new love! I have to admit there may have been a few tantrums when painting (sorry Muffins!) but I got through the scary "I can't draw" fear and am now into it! Here's a little peak at what I've been up to for the past 5 weeks...

 I then went onto the actual technical workshops, learning how to do all sorts from basic screen printing and stencils to discharge printing, polychromatic and dye workshops. It was so much fun, even if the chemicals did get to me and make me a little poorly.
  I'm excited to learn more and practise my drawing. I have a stash of new gouache and a very expensive brush in my sewing room waiting to be used! So exciting!
