i'm not going to pick a winner untill tomorrow (afternoon my time, morning usa time), so you still have a chance to comment here and win some free letters! i love all you bloggers.
i am clearing things out, organizing, getting sorted, and i found a few things.
this is a scrappage i did the other week;
and i found this on my dad's camera! he is the bestttt!!!
can't wait to take photos with him again. bestest! loveloveeee, Kxx
first of all, i want to share what i've made with the July Red Velvet kit. it was werid, but so much fun playing with my papers! (remember, if you have any projects with my papers, upload them to the flickr group. :D)
and with the project kit, i made a mini book about why i love england.
i still have alot of the kit left over, and it's all going in my USA travel journal! my mum kept walking by and saying 'that's too much fun. not allowed!' haha. i love her.
you know those letters i used on the mini, well...
yay! i made a video to explain it to you;
haha! last night mum, dad and i went to london and met up with my cousin for PennyRoyal's single release! yay! and i can finally share some images from the shoot as well;
it was perfect seeing them live. cheered me right up!
people kept coming up to me and being like 'you're kim, right?'. haha, i loved it! maybe i can share with you a little shot of the single...
if you haven't listened to them yet, take a listen here (you can also buy their single!). and to see more shots; here.
(just two favourites from lastnight;)
in my real life (:D) i've been stupidly ill. they think it's glandular fever or something. but i keep truckin' cause there is just too much to do! school is over for the summer now, finally, and i'm off to america in less than a week!!!
i made you all a really cool animation at school yesterday, but it wouldn't save. i'm so gutted.
anyway, i'll have RVA projects to share with you shortly, and an etsy update too. i think you're going to like!
i'm off to a bbq/party and then another photoshoot! what are your plans this week/weekend?
...so being ill, for me, means being restless and spending lots of time at my desk;
it means getting little notes from best friends;
and scanning lots of photos.
(taken with rod, in spain)
i have about 6 rolls of film to share with you! i'm really excited about all of them.
some of them have gone straight onto pages, though. i'm working through my RVA kit, playing with my papers. it's so strange, but so so fun!!! i will share as soon as it's all done.
did you know you can score yourself some free papers by commenting on these ladies' (TK and MR) blogs. or click on over here to buy yourself all 6 designs.
i am planning an ETSY UPDATE with some exciting new things (can you guess? haha) for my Vespa-pa-pa-pa collection. i want this to happen before i leave for California (holiday, yay!) on the 1st of Aug, so keep checking back here. i will have a RAK. :D
hmm, here are two more scans from my art journal;
i mailed lots of things yesterday! i love happymail. it's the best.
i'm still taking requests for mailart buddies in europe/uk. 2 more, i think.
(hey Rhi- you asked to see what i've been painting. i will post some more when they are made into nice things. the dots on that art journal page is some paintlove. haha.)
love, K xx
i've been trying to wake up early lately, and today i did some self portraits.
there are some more on flickr, and i might share a few outtakes later with you. :] i miss doing self's.
then i went to school and got to bragg about my thifty finds. mum and i went to a boot sale and we had a blast- just kept buying stuff. haha.
i love my typewriter. it's from the 70's. i feel like a secretary for the Sweeny. haha. also picked up a vintage cutter from a photography store and some cute wooden frames, which i'm tempted to paint white... hmmm. rachel has totally inspired me!
i also got a few tops and a camera with harri at the weekend, before Claverham Big Night Out- just a little picture.
also big news- I'VE GOT A MAC!
it's not very fancy, and the internet isn't working on it yet- but it's mine (his name is Lewis) and it's making my desk look pretty.
love you all.
p.s. i got my RVK today in the mail, and i've got three or four letters to send. i'm looking for mailart pals (maybe europe because i have two USAs already...) so comment if you're interested! :D
hi everyone, hope you've have an amazing weekend, have you made anything? link me- i want to see :]
Theresa has made some lush layouts with the RVKC
here's a little peek;
i can't wait to see what everyone makes with my papers! it's so exciting!
i uploaded some photos from june; the City of Style here.
my dad is the best ever, he hung out with me the whole night. :]
i did some face hunting too. everyone looked so good.
in graphics, we've been doing alot of illustration, here is a little something i drew today of my mum in the living room. this is so werid, becuase i can't draw. haha.
and i've been keeping my art journal up everyday, here are some scans.
all of these are useing notebook paper. :] i love it. the last two were inspired by The Art Is Found, i've PVAed all over it. it was fun. totally addicting.
and this one is inspired by Kara. love her style.
other than that, i'm totally digging David Bowie at the moment. :]
i got some cool thifty finds, and as soon as i get my camera lead, i'll show you! :D
love you, kimxxoo
yay- the weekend, i'm excited! it's going to be a bit calmer, i reckon.
shopping on sat, photoshoot on sun. :]
i uploaded some photos here. i'm tring to do some catchup. :]
i have a lot of files to go through, haha, i loveee them!
besides spending time with my crazy friends- i had some film to finish off so i took the opportunity to photograph some of the things that make me happy on a day-to-day basis;
i've forgotten my camera lead at school! so silly, but i'll see what i can scan and share with you this weekend. love you all!
i've got lots to share with you today!
i've been working silly, getting pennyroyal's single design sorted. come down to thier launch in london if you can! (leicester square, 25th of July.) they inspire me so so much!!
there are so many images i want to share from that shoot, but i'll have to be patient!
Ashton came to visit me at school yesterday, and we tried to make some mailart, but it didn't work so well.
i have lots of ideas at the moment, some big and some small.
mum's been teaching me some 'quick' recipes for when i go to Uni! :]
i've been using my frees as painting time this week, and its just what i need.
currently my little obsessions are; making a big mess in mc's room, white paint, pva, sticking everything to paper, feather quill pens, art journals during animation, organization and super/action samplers.
oh, and my crazy art friends...
besides being really excited about everything right now, i'm really tired, so i'm going to go catch some 'z's! let me know if you read this- i want to check out YOUR blog! :]
i am constantly thinking about all the things i have to do. i'm currently in-between moleskins, so i'm carring around three different books fulls of lists and paper and a stack full of pens, everything in there reminding me of something else i have to do or something i want to try.
one of these things is BLOG MORE.
so, here i am, 2:30 am, thinking about bed and getting up early to do some more work.
thinking about what i can share with you today...
Bewitched is pretty much my all time favourite show. i get so inspired watching it. i guess i'm a sucker for magic and being domestic and the 60's. it makes me giggle!
my friends have been inspiring me lots lately too. heather is always there for me, and i don't think she realizes it- but she gives me the art itch! i just have to make something when i'm around her. it's good.
life keeps moving, and things keep changing, but one thing that stays the same is that i'm always working.
it's work that i like, but still- i miss being able to spend the whole weekend just scrapbooking.
