May Bootcamp

Such a contrast from last months assignment, May was full of beauty and pretty. We were studying roses this time and the assignment was to create a journal using roses and a quote from Gertrude Jeykll.

Gertrude Jeykll was an influential British horticulturist, garden designer, artist and writer. She created over 400 gardens in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States.

I rebelled a tad and chose to use a quote by Vita Sackville-West who was an English poet, novelist, and garden designer.

Quick tip: Spell check everything! Twice. And then check it again before sending off to a client. I made this very error when I submitted my final piece to the Bootcamp gallery and then realised afterwards that I'd mis-spelled Vita Sackville-West.

This is how my exploration started

And this is how it ended up!
