New image based on Jodi Picoult's acclaimed Handle with care novel, a great but very sad read! Yes, I have been reading to avoid my studies, but there's time for those later!
I actually had to make this image twice :s the first time it did it, I was just tweaking it and BOOM (well not that dramatically) my computer crashes, nothing saves :/...I like to think this version looks even better than the first one though!

I apologise in advance for how emo this piece looks,

It just suddenly occured to me that everything I've ever added on here is really light and fun and usually colourful too, so this is a bit different, also due to the amount of text I added, more than a bit depressing I know :) but at the same time, there's sadness in everything, every part of nature, so today let's be thankful for what's good in our lives!
P.S, next update will probably be next weekend again as I have approximately 4 hours of school work every night :/ ...

So it's been a week! I apologise but from now on this blog will probably only be updated weekly, as that is how much time I have to produce new pieces of art & load them on here, I'm sorry but Sixth Form is so intense, and I'm also applying for a job as well as taking the Extended Project Qualification with my A-levels :O

Ignoring my excuses, here it is, a piece on London, a place where I have often visited (my mum's family origniate there) and might (?) end up living in at university! The image I made deliberately includes some of the most famous landmarks, using pictures I took myself in April 2010 :) ...

Ok, so this might be my last blog post in a while...

I'm on holiday AGAIN this weekend before sixth form starts :s and I might get swamped by school work! I will try to update a piece of art at least once a week, for those of you that are following me, more if I have the time!

This piece pretty much sums up my life in the last 2 & 1/2 months...summer day-dreaming after exams, and a lovely purple blend too...

woo, late blog update... but it's very cute! I found a photo of a cat (which was actually a very bright picture) & then made this out of it, it's a little different but I really like it - perfect for a summer's night!

Ready for another Spanish piece? This time the photos are all of the lovely house + surrounding landscape of where we stayed in Mallorca/ Majorca in Ses Olleries for 2 weeks this summer :)
I love using the "duplicate" effect on GIMP to make the different parts of the collage look like they're moving...
