I just marathoned through the whole gallery right now---- everything is FANTASTIC! I love all the techniques and themes; they made for a great gallery
Just to answer a few questions I noticed. . .
The gradient color on Jen Sews's feather print was made by globbing drops of white, pink, red, and blue screenprinting ink on a clipboard, blending them with a brayer, and applying them to the linocut.
The steampunk silhouette on her gear fabric was also a linocut that i just integrated with the gears.
Hayleylujah's avocados were a linocut outline with Inkodye sunprinting ink to color the pits (is that what they're called? I don't like avocados personally, so I'm not sure
), then handpainted with green acrylic paint with an additive to make it fabric safe. You guys should check this stuff out.
It is waaay
too much fun. It's the same stuff loulew28 used. You can even print photographs using negatives!
Anyways, here are a couple more photos so you can see the colors. I hope you don't mind, hayleyluah!
ANYWAYS (lol), let me show you what my partners made!!!
From hayleylujah comes two yards of awesome prints made using glue resist and
I love them both. They're both very subtle, yet cute. I can't wait to get using them! Thank you so much, hayleylujah!!!
And Jen Sews sent me the fantastic running skeleton she previewed earlier. It's screenprinted on the coolest natural canvas, my favorite fabric EVER.:
I am going to have so much fun with this one. I'm thinking a new bag for my running gear. She also sent an extra piece of the koi fabric:
Thanks SO MUCH, Jen! I love them both to pieces
You guys were both great, patient partners. I sort of lost my head with time these last couple swaps, and you guys didn't get mad. Thank you for a great swap
