Earth & Fire - Rufford Abbey

On the 24th June I took a trip to the event of Earth & Fire which was held at Rufford Abbey. I really enjoyed the event because of there were many different pieces of art. I paticully enjoyed Simon Grifiths work. On his stall there was a sculpture of a fox and if you looked very carefully you could see the details. Also I enjoyed Mark Smiths work! His stall had boats with little keys on the end. You also could see coils that had been placed carefully and different colours. I will be looking out for his art in the future and I hope you will too!When I had one more hour I found a stall associated with Hull College. I must have looked older because they said I could take a degree with the college. They also asked what school I went too. Well when I told them I was Home Educated, they were very interested! For more pictures on the event visit my Instagram page @lucy_haynes . Overall on this event it has given me not inspiration but made me want to continue my work with art. You can c…

Decisions... have I really made my mind up?!

Who's to say to make Decisions at an early stage? Especially on your 'Career'...It may be frighting to some but not me. Ok maybe a little scary especially when you can't flipping decide! I have sort of made a my mind just now... I might do something I never throught I would think I would do but then again It could be from this list who knows!

Actor ~ I have always been into acting since I did drama at the age of 6 at 'Helen O Grady'. I do enjoy it immensely!Artist ~ I love art. Apprently I painted the sea and a boat when I was very little and mum could easily tell it was a boat... I also enjoy art so much!
But when your little you don't reliase what things you have to do to be the thing you always wanted to be. Its like sitting at the bottom of an apple tree and looking up. And each stage you get too you progress to a another branch until finally you reach the top. The Tree House with every memory of getting to where you wanted to be. That's…

I'm a Visual Learner.

I have found out I am a visual learner which means 'needs to see it to know it!'. I wanted to look more into it and found out it may be along the lines of dyslexia.

Whenever someone mentions a certain word I can see it in my head. When someone mentions a food product I can not only see it but smell it when it's not in front on me.

Also when I am trying to remember something such as a room in a big building I have to link it in to things. Sometimes I talk to people and if they say a word, the word is automatically highlighted in my head and leads to loads of things.

I love what I am because if I have trouble during work in subject that my mum is talking about e.g. Science. I may hate the subject but when I see a picture I can see the object even feel the object just by looking at a picture.

Summer Lovin....

Well hello almost summer! I saw the weather today and realised I should....stay indoors and make polymorph clay chibi's and charms.

I woke up to realise I hadn't charged my phone the night before. I was going to charge it but I needed charging first! I must have kipped it at half past midnight!

I have ended up charging that phone twice today! Only used it to check my Instagram *coughs* and some nice pictures of the Horrible Histories cast and Mighty Boosh cast...*coughs*.

So in the first part of the afternoon, I made some Haribo strawberry charms using some fimo. I spent about an hour dealing with wire work. I used to do bead work when I was 10 or 11yrs old. I used to create my own bracelets and necklaces than at the age of 12, I began to get into sewing. I used to create little pockets or wallets to keep my library cards safe. I remember making one with pink stripes with blue stitching. You can almost envision the look of it!

Also this afternoon I created cookie charms and…
