i will wait for you there

I always look forward to the new issue of Lula and #14 Spring/Summer 2012 is one of my favourites yet. It's currently sitting next to my bed begging to be read, but until uni wraps up in the next two weeks I'm enjoying just flicking through pages of beautiful images.

Collage images from Lula magazine via TFS, watercolour by me.


  1. I'm exactly the same. I got my issue of Lula and Friday and I've read some interviews (some really good ones as usual) but I haven't devoured every single page yet! It makes for a perfect break for revision thorugh, but I'd rather save it as well. Lula is the best!

  2. I've been hoarding magazines lately to go nuts on once uni's done. Motivation (of the hostage-holding variety) to pump out those last few assignments.

    Speaking of uni, I'm a graphic design student and I love your blog for inspiration. If you wouldn't mind sharing, how do you do those watercolour overlay effects? They look so pretty, and I'm really curious about how you go about it.

  3. Lies & Hannah, I know - I always have a huge pile of reading material by my bed come holidays. It's so good to use as motivation though!

    Hannah, I use photoshop and play around with the opacity of layers aswell as using the effects panel. I use a combination of different effects depending on the image and result I want to achieve.
    Hope that helps!
