Hello! My days have been ridiculously long and all the late nights at uni have me feeling a little run down, but I am super happy with what I've done so far. I know I shouldn't be putting my health at risk for the sake of my dissertation but I'm really enjoying it and I like finding out what I can create next. I finally managed to find my colour palette after having a bit of a melt down and I started putting collages together of people, trees and cars. It kinda looks like they're having a little party! 🎉✨

I really want to create my own city narratives through screen print, and I actually managed to dye the fabrics in colours I wanted! Dyeing has never been my favourite thing but all it required was a lot of patience and thankfully a quiet morning in the dye lab. I chose to colour cotton and linen but the linen has to be my favourite as it just feels so much nicer. (I really want to use this in my degree show but it's extremely pricey so I'll definitely have to get saving now.)
I'm so grateful that the weekend is nearly here, it's my mums birthday tomorrow and I get to celebrate it with her as she's coming up to Leeds. I can't wait to have a couple of days off with my family and finally have some downtime. I hope you have a great weekend!
