Glass Garden

Glass Garden by Alison Day

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

Languid Florals by Alison Day

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

Magic Wings by Alison Day

Having completed a five month creative bootcamp late July, I found myself in quandary—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!

Said It

So... the cat is out of the bag, I've gone and said it—so it must be true. It's the thin edge of the wedge, but at least I know it's real. I can almost touch it, see it, feel it, smell it—or is that weird?
Want to find out what an earth I'm talking about? Follow this link—I said it!
Don't worry it isn't anything nasty and won't bite. Let me know what you think.
