Yesterday was the last day of the weirdest school year I have yet been a part of. I feel like I haven't been "Miss Garrard" in her usual role in months though I've worked continually throughout. In the UK there seems to be a culture of teacher under-appreciation. We moan, we're lazy, we get a 6 week Summer (which we don't get paid for), we don't care etc. Yesterday our senior leaders led a presentation which nearly had me in happy tears. Looking around the gym at 30 fellow members of staff (another 30 were in the hall, another 30 in the sports hall - they linked us all up via Microsoft Teams). I saw an exhausted team of dedicated professionals who badly needed to hear this message: What followed was over 30 minutes of upbeat music and slides we'd all put together for each other thanking each other for the support, the passion and the kindness we'd shard over the past year.

I had a suggestion from another deviant that the default deviant art copyright symbol was somewhat obtrusive and takes away from the photo underneath, so they suggested I have a go at creating my own logo. It's been a long time since I've had a play around properly with GIMP but I thought I'd have a go at making a custom brush with an "RL Garrard Photography" logo! Before I plaster it all over my new deviations however I'd really value some feedback. Do you like my logo? Does it detract from the picture? Is it worse than the deviant art default? Please be critical, I want to get it right, particularly while I have a bit more free time to correct it. Many thanks friends! Becca x EDIT: I had a play and got rid of the rectangle! My fiance did point out that a watermark is meant to avoid picture thieves so had a bit more of a play around...

As well as using lockdown time to work on uploading some bright colourful photography, scrapbooking, baking and painting, I've also been working on developing my Bucket List and creating a blog to share my passions. I'd really appreciate some feedback from you lovely artistic folks about the look of the website in particular, but also the content and how easy it is to navigate. www.beccas700.co.uk (or, and I'm really proud of this, just Google "becca's 700") Thank you very much in advance for your time! Becca x
