Nail Experiment no.1

I've been having a faff about with nail stickers and matt topcoat, mainly because I have a desperate Girl Crush on The Dainty Squid and I want to be as cool as her.

Not too bad for a first go. I think my basecoat could do with another coat, and I deffo need to sort out my cuticles first, but for an experiment, it's turned out rather well. Huzzah!

Ahhh, what have I started again???!! Back in 2009, I went pink but rapidly gave it up due to sheer laziness when it came to up-keep, but now I have plans for a rainbow of colours, different layers dyed different shades, extensions...where will it end?!

(Probably down the road next week when a) boredom b) laziness and c) cost overwhelms my brain)

Graffiti, Trafalgar Lane

Big blue face on Trafalgar Lane

Aye, aye #nofilter

Big blue robot, also Trafalgar Lane


Such amazing shades of blue. Even though these are all from Instagram, the second photo down - the eye - has had no filter or other faffing with the colour; it just is that bright and strong and gorgeous. Must be this sudden influx of summery weather making me think of huge skies and dabbling my toes in Mediterranean seas. If only!

Oh, Hello...

... I just popped off there to draw a few Brownies, a few Vikings and forgot to come back.

So, it's been another month of scribbling away. I'm pretty happy to have this lovely, long string of work. I just need one nice, long well-paying job to top it off now! But, thankfully, things have calmed down considerably since the book fairs in the spring, so it's nicely manageable at the moment.

In photo-related news, I finally managed to join the C21st, and get smartphone once my contract was up. I've had a Sony Experia T now for two weeks and it is AMAZING. Most amazing of all is its 13MP camera, so expect a lot more Instgramming and decent photos on here. And, dude, why did no one tell me there was a whole world of fab, free photo apps out there?! I'm slowly working my way through them all....

Here are a few snaps from the inaugural outing:
