Final Board

Mystic Circle by Alison Day

Selecting one product from each week, here's my final collection. The styles of my products from the five weeks were quite eclectic, but I think I've managed to put a cohesive board together.

What do you think?

Now on to the next illustrative project, which is under wraps for now - more on that later.


Currently, I'm designing a creative E-Course. It's for anyone wishing to take time for themselves, develop their knowledge, both artisticaly and environmentally and meet others of a like mind. This courseis for you, regardless of your artistic experience or creative level.

Foxy Baroque

 

Foxy Baroque and Home Decor week 4, is all about ceramics and incorporating text, along with various finishing techniques and decoration.

With a love of all things Gaudiesque, I found myself adding glass mosaic decoration to an already opulent, hand painted plate. A glass glaze on a fern coaster, which could also be used to create a mosaic wall pattern, shows how lucrative designing products for oneself could be for a broader audience.

Finally, porcelain potpourri holders, a personified vase with a foxglove skirt in relief and a unicorn tree decoration and we enter the realms of the mystical and magical world.

Glass Garden

 

In week three, we designed home decor products for the substrate: glass. Combining both my bird and flower icons, an overall garden theme emerged. The pieces are a mix of translucent and opaque glass and are decorated with decals, hand painted or have fused elements.

Can you see any of these home decor products in your home ?

Languid Florals

 

 

Well, week two of the Home Decor course is complete and uploaded. Substrate: fabric, with a theme of florals. I've always wanted a chaise longue and covered with my own fabric design would be fabulous... Oh and that Ottoman will go nicely with it too.

Magic Wings

Having completed a five month creative bootcamp late July, I found myself in quandry—what to do next? I wasn't planning on going away, the weeds in the garden could continue their rampage (at least for a few more weeks) and the Summer holidays were still in full swing. I missed the early Monday morning assignments and the camaraderie of my fellow students...

Yesterday, ahead of deadline, I uploaded my completed Home Decor assignment for week one of a five week course. Designed for the substrate: metal, with a theme of birds.

A serial student I am, but this means yet another piece for the portfolio and I'm in creative heaven!
