I will hold my hands up and admit that with all the chaos of the last few months I totally forgot I’d signed up for the intermediate workshop with the Bespoke Atelier girls for this weekend. You may recall that the last time I created a few wee bits and pieces like these:
This time though, things will be a little different. Instead of using craft knives and sugar paper, we will be using photo emulsion to create our screens, and since the screens are quite large, I’m trying to work out what exactly I want to make. I already have a couple of ideas in mind for SS both for the ASS Gurus and subsequent road trip, but what else should I create? More stuff for SS indicating that the Brits are invading? (I can share that with Laura and Katy) Anything else I absolutely must screen print? I need to provide my own fabric for this, and I have both white and natural cotton to work with, plus I’ve got some fitted tees to work with as well.
As far as the Brit invasion, what iconic things need to be on these? (these will probably be basic tote bags BTW) I might end up with a couple of these as giveaway items, so it’s worth your while to give your input (or just quietly ignore both this post and the giveaway one ;o) )
I've recently taken a screenprinting workshop and I loved it! I want to screenprint everything!!!
I can't remember all the ideas I popped out with no effort the other night. Hope you can!
How bout a nice cup of tea? I know its been done before, but I do love the tunnocks teacake…
I don't have any specific ideas for you but I will be stalking you for the giveaway!! I really love the 2 prints you are showing.
Nothing inspiring springing to mind tonight – sorry. Will look forward to seeing what you come up with though! Juliex
Gosh British themes are tricky, we have the London taxi cabs, the fish and chips, the afternoon tea, can we claim hot air balloons? =D
As an Aussie I'd like to see a British flag ( I know that's a bit cliche -sorry -I'm only on my second coffee for the morning )
What about a red phone box? A Mini ? A royal crown with your own twist on it? A double decker bus? Iconic food logos?
Corgis and bowler hats? You do such fun workshops! I know you'll come up with brilliant ideas!!
Chelsea flower show is what popped into my mind, although I am a long way from England..
We came, we saw and we sewed?
Big Ben! A double decker bus! Tea! (maybe a crumpet…still not sure what that is)
Can't wait to see what you come up with! When I think of British things I immediately think of "the crown" and tea 🙂
The circular spitfire logo. Bowler hats, bearskin soldier 'hats'. Umbrellas. Rain. Knowing how to queue (something I really miss now I live abroad!). Rugby, cricket, soccer balls.
When I think Brits the things that came to mind are double decker buses, Big Ben and the Tardis.
Tower bridge, Edinburgh Castle, Giant's Causeway (a bit hard that) London Skyline – The gherkin. Parliament, The London Eye with a river below it.
Oh I dunno, there's lots,
Well why not something along LJs recent embroidery? :). Perfect!
But then again the UJ and a mug of steaming tea,will do it just as well! Baggsie a SKC bag!
Keep calm, etc…perhaps with a twist?
An iconic British image? Look no further than the little photo on the right for inspiration ;o) (I could wear a Union flag cape if that would help?!)
I like all things British. How about James Bond? Nah, maybe Westminster Abbey? A cup of tea…your mom's famous and delicious Christmas cake?
Everyone already took my ideas (I realize I'm WAY behind on my blog reading so I'm totally late to the game). Big Ben. Thames. Union Jack. Cup of tea. Double decker bus. The Beatles. Top hats and monocles. Stuff like that.
Have any of you ever looked into getting your ideas printed? Some of your ideas sound great! I've tried screen printing a few times and I like it a lot! just an idea!
