Discover Your Inner Artist

Here's a short video I created today. It's about my up and coming creative online course.
Apart from the images, I've done the voiceover too - feeling good about it! Why not take a look and let me know what you think?

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 artistically and environmentally and meet others of a like mind. This course is for you, regardless of your artistic experience or creative level.

If you've been following my progress, l'd love to know what you think.

Foxy Baroque

Foxy Baroque by Alison Day

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 Gaudi, 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.
