More Screen Printing!

And the screen printing continues...

So it was my third day in a row in the print room, got two more days to go this week and my feet are really feeling it, definitely going to have to wear more comfy shoes tomorrow, I thought my boots were comfy but obviously not when I've not sat down all day!

Anyway normally by now my head is over flowing with ideas of where to put these prints on garments etc, and it is! There's one print in particular I want to put going down an oversized maxi dress!

Here they all are:

LOVE this one! I tie dyed the background fabric to :)

When pulling out the newspaper to clean up my mess I found this! Had to take a picture... <3 Pandas, definitely panda obsessed!

My work station for the day...

Second print, quite like this one to :)

A print over the top of yesterdays heat press, turned out quite well

Another one over yesterdays heat press - not a fan of this one so much

Drying time!

Just a simple sketch book sample - not a fan, its a bit bland, need to do something more with it...

Todays heat press on a steel blue jersey fabric, comes out better on this one!

One of my favourite prints of today, done over the top of the heat press, love it - its so simple but I really like it, its more of a placement print so I think it would look fantastic on a oversized maxi dress! Now its time to get designing!

Always love it when my print comes through the fabric and on to the table

Another one done over the top of screen print, really like this one to - love the colours together...

Another attempt at bitmapping - still not perfect more work to do on this one I think!

Let me know you thoughts on them, and you favourites, it would be highly appreciated. I will be posting tomorrows prints up again as well! :)

    Have a nice day! Emma x

Screen Printing - Bitmapping

So the other day at uni we learnt a little tip to add depth to our screen prints, its called bitmapping
First load the image you want to use in photoshop Heres mine - its something I'm looking at using for mothers day

The you'll need to convert you image to Grayscale - to do this go to [Image] [Mode] [Grayscale]

You'll then need to adjust the contrast of the image to help add depth later - to do this [Image] [Adjustment] [Levels], play around with the slider until you get the desired effect - you can also use [Brightness/contrast] but I prefer Levels

Your image must be a minimum of 150ppi, although it is better to be 300ppi. To adjust the number of pixels within your image select [Image] [Image Size] and you can change the resolution

Now its time to Bitmap the image - to do this go to [Image] [Mode] [Bitmap] - this will open this window change all of the settings to be the same as those in the image. Depending on your type of screen mesh you may need to adjust the Bitmap output …

Roberto Cavalli Fashion Illustrations

While I was a Fashion and Textiles Design student I was forever looking for the top designer's fashion illustrations, as I always found them so inspirational. I've recently stumbled across some I really love by Roberto Cavalli, so I thought I share them with you.
This first two are designs made for Cindy Crawford and Georgia May Jagger, and they are amazing.

This one below is for the lovely Sharon Stone. The snake back detail will look incredible, and adds a perfect little twist to the classic strapped back/backless dress.

The next one was designed for Liu Wen, and it's my favourite. The colour and the indication of the pattern are beautiful. I love the expressive lines of the design and how subtle shading shows how the dress will fall. You could only expect the best from an amazing designer like Roberto Cavalli and he definitely delivers.

There is no need to try and imagine how the finished dress would look as you can see it below. The outcome is just as stunning as the …

10 Most Shocking Tennis Outfits Ever

This week sees the start of Wimbledon and as Wimbledon is the smartest, most well dressed tournament there is, I thought it would be fun if we looked back at some of tennis' biggest fashion blunders.
At number 10 we have Anne White from Wimbledon, it may have been 1985 Anne but that doesn't excuse turning up in your pyjamas to work.

Next up we have tennis' very own Lady Gaga, Bethanie Mattek, who is famous for her outrageous dress sense, although this outfit from the 2007 US Open is relatively tame for her.

At number 8 we have the five times Wimbledon champion Serena Williams with her biker inspired look from the Australian Open in 2004. Nice shin pads Serena.

At number 7 sees Bethanie again, this time dressed as a cowgirl at the 2005 US Open. You're playing tennis Beth, not attending a fancy dress party! 

Bethanie is still holding on to the title of worst dressed tennis player at number 6, sporting this design from Alex Nomble at Wimbledon 2011. Tennis balls are what…
