Barbie on Holiday

This was a really fun project my Mum and I came up with our family holiday away in Danby, North York Moors. As part of the project my mum bought some Barbie’s and Barbie clothes, shoes and accessories. My mum organised the ‘styling’ of the Barbie’s and I took the photography.

I was a bit apprehensive of the project as at first thought it might be a little daft, but I’m sure that was the point, it was fun and light-hearted.

I wanted to capture a week in Barbie (and kens) shoes while they too were away on there holiday! Some of the shots I came up with were slightly bonkers but I think they can make people laugh!

Texture Collage Work – August

I felt because I hadn’t done much painting recently I would do some collage textural work in my sketchbook. I used acrylic paint, tissue paper, plastic bags and any found objects/materials I could find.

I ended up completing about eight pages of collage work. I then used my small compact digital camera to take pictures of sections in the collage I liked the best.

I did some slight editing on Photoshop, for example, creating a more noticeable contrast and generally brightening the image up to make it look more vivid.

Here is a selection of my work from the day...

Grasmere Nature Photography

It was wonderful to be around such beautiful settings and I wanted to capture some of the things I saw while I was there.

I particularly liked the moss that grew between slate walls and the lovely peachy coloured tree I spotted.

Here are my nature shots....
