Sleeping Beauties

Afternoon All!!! How is everybody? Doing well despite the severe lack of sun? Well wrap up warm my friends, it is about to get even chillier as I tell you about my final project for year one of university- 'Sleeping Beauties'. Now you have heard about this project when it was first described as Innovative Thinking, and since then it has evolved to form the beginning for a drawing project and the Mixed Media roundabout. We are now returning to the initial inspirations and this involves a concept book and two presentation boards! Luckily I didn't have to do any drawing for this bit, but I do have to stand in front of a large group of people with said boards and talk about my theme- not looking forwards to that!
The book I have already shown you (see the link above) but I thought I would share my boards with you.
The first one is inspirational images, my colour palette and title...

 The colours names, from left to right, are: Sugar Crystal Blue, Mint Crystal, Jack Frost, Frozen Dew, Winter Sun and Thistle. Pretentious I know, but people seem to like that.

The second board- which was knocked out today (I am on a roll!!) shows some materials I could use, mainly paper on there, but also some hessian, netting and some heavy woven fabric with a nice texture, the idea being that there is a contrast of delicacy and hard stiffness between the frosting and the plant itself. Plus as the plants are all reasonably dead- they feel papery!!

So wish me luck for the presentation!!
