overprinting...




i had a lovely eureka moment yesterday & despite having lots of other things to do, decided i had to put my idea into practice right away...you know how that happens, yes? so cue lots of clearing up of the papers that covered my print table (read: shoving in an untidy pile) and getting stuck in...

...and the result is overprinting on the summersville collection! admittedly i've only done this one so far, but i'm open to requests & will be doing more of them today. i'm a little bit addicted to metallic colours (i've got copper, gold and silver) but i think it's going to work nicely with bright colours on top of black and maybe black on the top of some of the other colours...in actual fact, the possibilities are pretty endless. so...i think you know what  i'll be doing today :)


i'm sorry for the terrible silence of late, i can't believe it's been so long...needless to say the meetings i was so nervous about went better than i could ever have hoped and i should be able to share with you soon. exciting times!

Please please copper on black would look wonderful with some black batiks that are stuck in my cupboard - the sort of bundle which said buy me and then I couldn't bear to cut into them.

I like that, it has a completely different feel to it with those colours. Sort of African. Clearly lots of possibilities.

Yay for new techniques working out, and double yay on the meetings!
