cut Tetra with a more detailed design, sprayed antique white

'protects what's good' Tetra Paks slogan with protecting hands

here i am...

sorry about the slight delay-
i am now back at uni, with much distraction.
to honour hitting the books, i thought i would share with you my 'you are here' paper cut-out bookmarks.

a few easters ago..

i was asked to create an Easter window display for my local shop 'Scrivs' (The Street, Holbrook), i gladly accepted. Here is my outcome, the poem reads...

'check the hedgerows check the shed,
leave out a carrot check the cat is fed,
look out for eggs of the chocolate kind,
then the easeter bunny you might find.'

the display

we even got in the newspaper!
