    Is anyone aware of the percentage differences between the writing and folios?

    so, the final expressive and the finished product so called 'solutions, are both worth 40 marks, yes?

    Butterflies for design, and I made a handbag, and still life for expressive. I was going to do a portrait, but I kind of ran out of time... :O
    what about you?

    anyone do design? I made a dress based on the sixties. I printed loads of stencils of the beatles' faces on to it. It was so much fun haha! I find it super difficult to write about fashion/textiles on the paper though.
    that's actually so cool : ) I made a bag inspired by butterflies. it's hard to describe, but it's actually quite nice : )

    Sounds good and was just curious. I'm at uni now, but done a poster advertising the cairngorms national park and an expressive folio on a stretch of Scotland's coast. Kinda miss having the time for art, though! :p:

    oh, cool : ) I hate Higher, tbh :L I enjoyed the design unit, not the expressive one. : | so yeah, I think I need to do extremely well in the written exam to get a good grade.

    I had to spend all my free periods, lunchtimes and so on in art, to get everything finished, and be up to speed with everything. a week before the deadline, I stayed there for 4-5 hours after school, everyday. and on the day before the deadline, 12 hours. so yeah, I didn't enjoy that.

    I'm doing Vertigo by Saul Bass as a design to discuss, although I saw that last year, that appeared in the paper.

    Will that affect anything?

    Thanks.

    Same, and 2 days just before the deadline my school lost my final solution for the design unit, so I have to do it again, so annoyed!
