Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

So I do a lot of screen printing, and have an assortment of screens which might happen to have a lot of Doctor Who themed images on them..because I love Doctor Who and I happen to know a lot of people that do too. So for the most part I was using them to make fabric repeats for FQs which is great and I still do that. But I actually stumbled upon another awesome idea to put these images to use...image mash-ups....picture puzzles...not sure there's really a name for it but basically a aggregation of images that form one larger image. I did one previously which I'll share at the bottom of the post (sorry for less than stellar pictures  Tongue) and then when I did this next one I made sure to capture the process as it went on for fun..because I love process pictures and maybe you do too  Smiley

First thing is first, you cut out your larger shape/image in freezer paper to mask out all the areas you don't want ink to get to. It's best to have a simple shape so that it's easy to tell what the overall image is.



Print print print. (It's probably best to start with the bigger images to make sure you can fit them on there and then fill in the spaces with smaller and smaller images, etc)..



Don't freak out if the images accidentally overlap...like I might have for a second with that stupid bow...it's all good. It still looks great!



Fill in the spaces with dots or lines or don't, it's up to you. I just like having a more filled in look because I think it gives the overall shape a bit more definition.



And peel..ooh crisp lines!....



And peel....and watch the magic of what you just created!




This was my first shirt using this style  Smiley



I'd love to hear what you think, or see your own creations if you decide to try this out. Thanks so much for looking  Wink
