The Arcade – September

Inspiration: – To be Loved – Jackie Wilson @ YouTube _____________________________ The lyrics in this song “someone to care, someone to share, lonely hours and moments of despair, to be loved, to be loved, oh what a feeling – to be loved.”  Resonated with me during the design for the Arcade this month.   Sitting at my mac listening to music, as Scarlet Creative is near another annual anniversary.   I  know that  design whilst one of my great loves so Scarlet Creative is really just an extension of that passion for me.   However, it is my family  who sit next to me, critique, offer suggestions, and ultimately hold my hand (and rub my back!) once I am off my computer have enabled me to keep doing this.  They are my true love, and they have given me the opportunity to experience the last 8 years of Scarlet Creative and are as much part of it as I am. (And I’ll keep baking the cupcakes to keep you all happy).   Thank you. The design this round was inspired by member of Scarletines who have been busy with ideas and options.     Meribel came from the time of year when the Alps are […]

Collabor88 – Jasmine

Inspiration: – London Grammar Nightcall @ YouTube _________________________________________ My name is Charlotte Bartlett and I work in Second Life.  Ha!  I know, I know it’s not the usual sort of sentence I utter in real life (well those who know me know I do already).  However, over the past few weeks I have had to say Charlotte Bartlett and Second Life multiple times to people who have no idea what it is what a virtual world house even was for.    Luckily, there was a good reason, I was given the amazing opportunity to present my designs to a new start up which was pitching for funding to create more cost effective 3D printing in my home city.  It was a huge amount of fun (and somewhat weird!) to see a virtual Scarlet Creative house become a real model as part of the demonstrations.  Who knows, if they get it off the ground perhaps I will realise my next dream of making Scarlet Creative a wider brand outside of Second Life.    Watch this space! I was working on this design during the same time, and the range of materials gave me inspiration to push more colour into the house style.    The style is, […]

Collabor88 – Atlantic Gazer

Inspiration: – The Sun is Alive – The Silent Years @ YouTube __________________________________ Having peace, and a sense of yourself, helps makes you who you are.   Kindness, empathy and easy smiles make life fulfilling and I am lucky that family and friends I am surrounded by share these qualities.    This design is inspired by those people, and with the idea of sitting on a rough wooden deck surrounded by sand, gulls, salt in the air and large crashing waves on the Atlantic with those I love.   It’s at these moments, as you stare at the ever changing view,  you realise how big the sky is and how small we are. The house is out at Collabor88 this month. Land Impact 79 Footprint 17 x 19m Footprint Mod + Copy I hope you enjoy <3 Charlotte x
