Jane Austen

I have started a new project, From which i want to design a set of contemporary book cover designs for a set of Jane Austen novels. I have my concept, to create a cover which reflects the personality of the main character from each book. I have been experimenting with the use of colours which represent different traits of there personality.

final tees

Here are my final Tshirts, Im really happy with how they have turned out. Nothing like the images i put here the other day though as you can see. I couldn't get a screen made in time to have these printed for the Handmade stall, I had to make a stencil with acetate then dab on fabric paint before adding the finishing touches, I really like the effect i achieved through stenciling on the designs i think they actually look better than what they would have screen-printed.

Im going to attempt to have a go at screen printing some T-shirts either tomorrow or friday for the fundraising stall that Molly has arranged to do, i wanted to create something illustrative which could be added to with embellishments so decided to base my designs around Shoes i have created my images now so will see how they look printed before i decide wether i will use them or not, Fingers crossed though they will look how i am hoping, I want to add rag ribbon as bows on the back of the shoes and maybe a few sparkles but we shall see.
