Fifties project

I'm afraid it's been a while because my life is so busy all of sudden and I've had to put the personal blog on hold. I decided to work back into those prints I did before with a few marks and brush strokes, and the other images are design ideas I'm sort of working on right now. Also HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I wanted to have a really good costume this year but it went wrong and now I only have fake blood and contacts which is lame although there will still probably be pictures on my instagram. At the beginning of December I'm going on a trip to Amsterdam with uni so I'll finally have a reason to use my camera again! Blogging as a student is difficult when you can't afford to do anything. (I've learned that now.)

My first try at screen printing (properly)

When I was at college they rushed through screen printing and mine was hideous so I thought I really didn't like it but now I love it. It's really great when you can just get on with it and you can do everything yourself and decide whats going where. It ended up coming out exactly how I wanted which is always a good thing and it was great to be able to mix my own colour. Maybe next time I can try something with two colours or even add a little more detail.

I actually hated the thought of mixing colours but my tutors are really lovely and they're always saying "just play around!" and it makes everything so much more positive. I made some coloured papers, added a few marks and textures and created this collage with them. Really love the colour scheme and if I can I want to use either the pink, green or yellow for my first screen printing workshop.
