Digital Prints

So tomorrow is time to send off the digital prints, I figured I let you look at what I've done first...

These to a both done using the glass brain I made, I photocopied it then scanned it in and turned the darkness up on it, to create this black brain.

These are my glass buttons  - the background was created by taking a close up shot of the above black brain.

This one reminds me of bubble wrap so I have sent a few of them to print so I can melt plastic and bubble wrap into them :)

These are the buttons I said reminded me of 101 Dalmatians with the black outerlined buttons behind. I then played around with the transparency.

This is one of my favourites! I just love it, its my curled buttons, I scanned them in and played around with the hue/saturation to bring out the blue colour more. I placed a gradient behind it. I then melted bubble wrap, took an unclose blurred photo of it in order to create this glitter/flare effect, I then played around with the transparency and placed it on top of the original file, and this is the outcome. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT ON FABRIC!!

This is very similar to the above buttons one, I just wanted to see which came out best on fabric :)

This is a close up of the glass brain, I over sharpened it to bring out the more detail, played around with the hue/saturation (+20) to bring out the cyan more. After that I changed the transparency so it wasn't to bright and still fit in with my colour palette.

This again is another favourite! Its very space age. Its one of my larger buttons scanned in, the background is melted plastic from below which I adjusted the transparency of, and placed a gradient behind, I then placed the above close up bubble wrap layer on top of it. I played around with the hue/saturation again of each layer to gain the right colours :).

This is the melted plastic from the above image, I also placed the bubble wrap over the top again.

This is an over sharpened version of the glass brian again which I photocopied, then placed into photoshop removing all shapes of grey replacing the with black, and layering different close ups over each other with different transparency to gain this effect :).

This is the glass brain repeated.

This is 3 buttons, two for the back ground and one for the above xray. I played around with hue/saturation and transparencies, along with added brushes and polyerising the above button to gain this effect.

The whole lot is being printed in A3 samples. I'm also getting a few meters split up with bigger prints of a few, and also some smaller ones done and 2 head scarfs! The whole lot is 3 meters and is costing me £170, which is expensive, but all places are the same, just this place the colours come out beautiful! Its from fabricad! I will upload it when its here!! So excited! :D

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…
