So, I spent today experimenting with embroidery over the top of my self portraits. The portraits are printed on 6×4 Photo paper which gives them a rather glossy, stiff finish. Piercing the photo paper with the needle and thread was a sort of therapy in itself as it created a sense of fragility within to a finished and structured piece. I want to experiment with colours and textures more. I also think it would look a lot more effective if the thread wasn’t as neat, almost ragged looking and more expressive. Which overall is the effect I am trying to create for my finished piece.
My goal for this year is to get my art out there. I am finishing my Fine Art degree this year so I wanted to try and get my work out there for people to see so I set up a few online stores with just a few of my latest prints.
I would really appreciate it if you could check it out.
Also, I would like to apologise for not posting as much as I would like to, I’m currently in the process of writing my dissertation but I will do my best to keep updating my blog. Thanks again, Jayde xo
my goal for this year is to look after myself, look after my body, my mind and my soul. I want to become more positive and more outgoing and just take every chance I get to do something new. I am also going to try and incorporate more vegetarian meals into my diet and look after my body and my health. I just want to be the best person I can be. Not just for this year but for my future. I would really love the opportunity to create some commissioned artwork just to get my name out there, even small pieces, I want to create more craftwork whether it’s knitting or embroidery I am open to everything right now. If anyone has any projects for me to work on send me an email and we can work something out together. Jayde.email@example.com
Let’s make this year the best. Together. Xo
So I have opened up a BigCartel (click to go to site) so far I only have two prints up for sale that are up for a reduced price at the moment. It would be great if you guys could at least check it out, any orders will get an extra little sketch from me to say thankyou to spread the christmas cheer! It would mean a lot for your support! xo
my boyfriend has recently become a rep for a new clothing company that in my opinion has some pretty badass designs. They asked him to get some shots of the clothing they sent him whilst also showing off his bmx skills. I decided this would be a good opportunity to practice my photography as well as getting the photographs for their new e flyer and blog. You guys should definitely check them out!! @fandlco on Instagram! Or check out their online store – fandl.co
