my creative space - print
Even when I'm busiest doing the other stuff (end of financial year - bleugh!) I need a little bit of creative squeezed in between.
This week I was delighted to receive this parcel from Spoonflower with some old designs resized, and also some experimental swatches of my block prints digitally printed. I love these two tiled designs and I like seeing them small like this, in fact I'm wondering how they'd look even smaller! I think they'd look great as a dress or Tova top, but which one to use!? Which one do you like?
Another I changed the scale on is my cloud print. Its so small here it would be perfect for quilting and smaller projects. I love that with Spoonflower you can play around and fiddle with designs, its fun to experiment. The small Lego print I've had before but its been out of stock for a while. Its in the shop now. Actually my Bricks print has been really popular! I sent off yardage to an Interior Design firm for curtains for a Lego room the other day! I hope to have a photo to share of that one day.
A couple of weeks ago I picked up some cheap screens on Ebay, planning on playing around a bit with screenprinting with stencils, which for some reason I've never done. I also got a new squeegee which was nice :-)
Here's my first experiment, a one hour project, it was quick and fun and I can see more in my future. After reading online I think I might buy some mylar to make the stencils more durable next time.
But now I'm off to see what creative everyone else has managed this week, here.
