...SMALLISH MAGAZINE...

...the lovely fashion stylist francesca bartoli asked me if i would be interested in working on a shoot with her and the photographer ian boddy for smallish magazine..i love working with fran and ian so the answer was of course yes...the clothes fran was picking out were in pretty pale pastel shades and simple shapes so i worked on some prop ideas to fit in with that...





...we used some iridescent plastic sheeting i had brought with me to shoot through which gave everything a look of being inside a fuzzy sherbet cloud...which is a great place to be...


...i made a wire crown for the model to wear which was very fiddly to make but i love how clean and simple it looks and will need to discover what else can be made like this...


...i bought lots of pearl and matt balloons in pastel pink, turquoise, lilac, white and transparent and these fantastic marble effect ones...they didn't make it in to the final cut unfortunately but i love the combination of different colours and finishes...


...crepe paper and vellum bubbles fizzing from the floorboards up to the ceiling...


...a painstakingly handmade and delicate paper flower...


                            ...and then the delightful looking mess left behind...
