ALSO I HAVE JUST GOT BACK FROM THE WICKERMAN FESTIVAL WHICH WAS BRILLIANT AS PART OF MY PRESS TICKET I HAVE WROTE AN ARTICLE FOR UK FESTIVAL GUIDES WHICH WAS A NEW BUT INTERESTING EXPERIENCE TO READ ABOUT MY THOUGHTS ON THE FESTIVAL FOLLOW THE LINK- http://www.ukfestivalguides.com/review/olympic-themed-wickerman-festival-burns-bright

THE FESTIVAL WAS FULL OF SOME AMAZING CRAFTS AND TEXTILES, FROM BINDI’S  TO INDIAN SILKS THE COLOUR SELECTION WAS BRILLIANTALSO THROUGH THIS LINK YOU CAN SEE PICTURES TAKEN BY THE TALENTED PHOTOGRAPHER MICHAEL HARBISON WHICH FEATURE THE MAGICAL COLOURS OF THE WICKERMAN.

IN THE SPIRIT OF TIE DYE I HAVE DONE MY FIRST PIECE OF BLEACHING ON DENIM WHICH WAS AMAZING TO WATCH AND SO EASY! THIS WAS MY DADS OLD JACKET WITH IS 100% COTTON AND SOME HOUSE HOLD BLEACH IN A BUCKET OUTSIDE. I SOAKED THE JACKET BEFORE PUTTING THE BOTTOM HALF ONLY IN THE BLEACH AND LET THE REST HANG OVER THE SIDE. I THINK IT LOOKS LIKE CLOUD WHICH WAS UNINTENTIONAL BUT THE DIP DYE EFFECT MODERNISES THE JACKET SO I’M HAPPY 🙂
