Glitter and sparkles

And this is what kept me busy over the weekend!
Design development for wallpaper is where I really feel comfortable. I love to explore with colour and media, being creative and innovative. I quite like the 'unfinished' style on my development sheets which I may take through into some of my final pieces as it would give another interesting aspect to my designs.

My designs above include media from Derwent pencils and some gorgeous goodies from Josyrose.com, including diamantes and fine glitter. They are brilliant quality and add such a lovely sparkle to my work for that extra special finish!
