1081  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / any ideas on what I can use apart from a canvas? on: December 16, 2006 03:28:40 PM
Okay, I've had this idea for my uncles christmas present, where I'm pasting the pages of a particular book onto a board of some sort, and stencilling a picture over the top.

I'm so totally broke this year as I quit my job, so does anybody have any Idea what I can use as a board to base it on?? I don't want to do it on paper as it'll look cheap, but I can't afford a proper canvas or expensive solid thing...

any ideas??

oh my god the labrynth.. I'll most definately look into that  Grin Grin

I craft, mainly art, with mixed media, I'm really getting into graphic design recently, with vector and stuff (although I'm not very good at the moment!). I read really girly books like the shopaholic series by sophie kinsella... (yes.. very sad I need to get into proper books!). I'm into to film and TV, so any ideas for that would be good. I LOVE Haute Couture dresses, and I'd LOVE to do a haute couture collection, but my skills just aren't good enough to do that.

I want to do something very contemporary, here are some designs I came up with when I was on holiday in the summer, excuse my illustration technique.. I only had colouring pencils.. stolen off of my little sister  Grin hehe:

I'd love to use these designs or similar, like interpret other ideas into them but I have no theme in them that I can see...

and yes uzurvoice, I will be postine the pics as soon as everything is made, will probably be in june though, so keep an eye out Cheesy also I will be posting my 1920s project in completed projects when I get it back in january!!

ooh yes, the collection has got to have at least 2 garments in it, but I was thinking more of about 4 or 5, so it'd be more open for my designs  Grin x

Well I don't want to sound boring... but I really can't think of anything I'm really piassionate about... I love 60's clothes, but I've already done an assignment on that, also, I've just finished a 1920's daywear fashion project, so that's out of the question too... I love the idea of a circus theme, that sounds pretty cool.

any other ideas?

Hey everyone,

... So basically, After christmas I get my new assignment, and I have to make a collection of clothes to be showcased on a catwalk.

It has to be themed but I have no idea what my theme is going to be.. anybody have any ideas?

I would like something interesting and original where I can do lots of research and get loads of inspiration from.. but for the past year I've had mega brain blockage and just can't think of anything...

Any help?? thanx x

aw thanks Cheesy, I've submitted it to be 'assessed' now, so unfortunatley I didn't get to take enough pictures to get a very good one but that one shows the hood nicely. When I get it back in January I will post more pics in completed projects.

hey karmic, really nice work but just remember to credit the maker of the brushes Cheesy I have one or two of the sets you used, they're lovely Cheesy xx

hi paroper, thank you for all your help, I had to figure the hood out myself last night as I didn't read your reply until now, but thank you so much I will definately be referring to your instructions in the future Cheesy as for the fitting, it was only pinned and will not be so tight when it's on! but again thanks for the information, it will be very useful in the near future.. (this was my first time making sleeves..!)

here's how my outfit turned out.

I'm only wearing the jacket for a fashion show in June so the fit isn't important Cheesy.

Thanks for all your help. Lou x

Hi, I'm currently making a short jacket out of fur and would like to add a wide hood for show. does anybody have any idea how to make one to the pattern I've used and how to attatch it??

here's the lining so you get a basic understanding of the jacket..

this is the back.. it won't really look this bad honest!  lol.

this is the front, the black doesnt exactly show where everything is, but basically I want the hood to be wide so it looks abit like a collar at the front, going into a hood at the back.. get me?! hehe...

thanx Cheesy xx

no that's the only down side to it, there's only written instructions (i think) and only afew of the items show the finished piece..! lol
