Finally had some time to really concentrate on doing some screen printing. I did a course back in July and while I've had everything I needed to get started, time has not been my friend.
Even while I've been on holidays, I had so many other things on my list of 'to do' things, I was getting worried I wouldn't get there.
Anyway, here's the first of my designs. A few more to come over the next little while. A full day is planned for tomorrow.
The final design is, well the one I printed, 'Grassdragon'.
I'm just going to refine it a little bit. It's prints a bit too fine. I'd like to get some more ink on the fabric. Playing with that tonight.
I called it Grassdragon as it's a combination of a flowering grass and a dragonfly. I love dragonflies, but didn't want the 'usual' look.
Close up of the trim and rosette.
Little tote bag printed and embellished. I printed it with a colour I mixed myself, (have kept the 'recipe' though). I really liked the colour, so will probably use it again.
Bit of a close up. I trimmed the top of the bag with a fabric from my stash. It's one from Spotlight. Then I found a check I'd bought years ago to embellish a singlet for my neice, so I made a fabric rosette out of that. Just finished it off with the middle of the rosette from the same fabric as the trim.
More creative people here.
