Last weekend Danielle (my girlfriend) and I went to Edinburgh for the weekend for the Christmas Market, I took her little Olympus Trip with me but the light meter doesnt seem to have worked, so these are all the images that came out from it.

Over the last four weeks I have been making a cover, contact page, splash page and turn page for a made up current affairs magazine. I really enjoyed doing all the development from collages of elements to simple thumb nailing but when I got it onto the mac I was a little demotivated however when I started playing with typefaces and focusing myself it all started coming together. My piece is about the worlds population hitting 7billion people, I feel the paper works really well with the piece, taking away that clean cut approach. Next time I really want to explore typography alot more and be more challenging with its use.
(a couple of pages from many)

Sea Life CentreWell we went to Tynemouth Sea life centre which was cool, some really nice light and some ugly fish! I love this one below, really would not want to mess with him. Also got a video of the Seal tank with the light and accidentally got a seal swimming through.
Got these two cameras for five pound, the Olympus Trip needs a little bit of work to get the light meter working. Cannot wait to get some film in these and see the photos that come out. Hope they are as good as my other cameras.

I went to Carlisle's most "famous" of stores Fun to Do! and got myself some stylus for embossing! Here are some of my first goes, I am aiming to emboss my front cover of a magazine with this technique. I had never done it without a press before but it is surprisingly easy and fun. I highly suggest having a go with it!

Its Woman's Weekly 100th Birthday, for this they have produced the first issue from 1911 in its original form. The original is on a small sized unbleached paper with black and red print. I really like some of the compositions in this book, like the one with the women pointing down with the title coming out of hand. Also the body copy is terribly small which I think is quite fun, as I see older ladies reading these magazines but not being able to see anything because of their glasses are not being good enough. Anyway well worth popping down to Smiths to get one of these for £1.25
