So, I arrived back in a very dull, wet England this morning after a week with Uni in Paris!
Its such an inspirational place; beautiful buildings, interesting landmarks and museums, cute boutiques, lovely scenery. I couldn't help but feel excited about getting back to CCAD to start my new project.
Another thing that really inspired me was visiting Premier Vision; so many gorgeous prints, embroideries, fabrics and trimmings. It was good to see the quality and standard of work produced by professionals and also gave me the opportunity to discover several companies that I didn't know of before.
Sadly, none of my work sold but the fact that it was taken to the trade show was exciting enough, something I am very proud of!
Overall, a brilliant trip :)

Cloudy and grey but still beautiful; great inspiration from the city of love, perfect for my wedding themed greetings project!
