PRINT PLAY

i have been experimenting today as you can see

i'd really like to push myself a bit more creatively this year + get to finding my handwriting again when it comes to style. this seems like a good start + i have some ideas to go forward in this kind of direction. something to combine a love of illustration...print...stitching

reflecting on this + wanting to do something similar but on a new level

my beginning here was a photo by hazel. the colours + shapes. so a special credit needs to be given for that shot of inspiration i needed. i'm still playing around with the idea of adding more detail or using a more abstract base (like the middle one) to embellish. i'd like to eventually stretch them on little frames.

actually...i think the middle one is going to be the best to work with even though it's just the reverse of the illustration scanned in!

The middle one is my favourite as it has fluidity and looks like a fabric print.
Keep experimenting Kelly.

lovely colour combinations Kelly, keep going, I look forward to eeing more embroidery too. I notice you went to see once, it is showing for one night only at our local cinema in a coupe of weeks, is it worth seeing?
