1  Unglefor: A T-shirt Project. The exhibition in Completed Projects by finestimaginary on: June 18, 2007 11:16:20 AM
Hi guys!
I just thought I'd let you know that my work is being exhibited right now in Manchester, Uk. You can find details of how to get there here http://www.artdes.mmu.ac.uk/degreeshow/ and I'm on the Interactive Art's course.

There was a post a couple of weeks ago here by another person who found out about my project, but there were no images included. You can get to the website that I made for the project http://www.finestimaginary.com/unglefor and see loads and read about it, but here's some other photos from the exhibition!

The project involves a range of screen-printed t-shirts that you can cut out and make a creature from. The creatures are called ungleforians and are from the forest of Unglefor Smiley The project also involved the website and a set of screen printed hand-bound books! Please check out the website for more images and information Smiley

There's more of those at my flickr account, http://flickr.com/photos/finestimaginary/, too!

Unfortunately some of my work was already stolen Sad one of the handmade books, so they're no longer being exhibited.

First working out of some creatures I'm making as part of a larger, installation style project. Looking at shapes and surface designs with these 3, I like the results so far! Any input would be excellent, though, suggestions?

3  Owls and Pumpkin's. I wouldn't say they're toys so.... in Completed Projects by finestimaginary on: October 22, 2006 09:02:05 AM
Hey guys! I've been busy this week working on some designs for my up and coming store opening, These tiny owl guys will be available in different sizes and stuff. I've been working on smaller ones, hopefully keyrings, this week!

made from random fabrics, with felt details. And thanks to those who informed me of ladder stitch!!!

I've also been making some tiny pumpkin's for a few halloween swaps that i'm working on...

There's more photos over at my http://flickr.com/photos/finestimaginary/

Also, I think i might include these owls, or some kind of hybrid of these owls, in my university project to do with paper/plastic/fabric gardens!!! Smiley

I'd be up for a jacket craftalong, too! I mainly work in fleece when making my kittie jackets...

So i've never done a lining before, and I always have such trouble with zips! *blush*

5  Blythe doll silhouette copper embossing and intricate detailing! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by finestimaginary on: October 18, 2006 03:00:22 AM
Ah! I'm posting all over the place today, anyway, this image was created in photoshop but I wanted to make an embossed piece with the image. I printed the image out, and used that a refernce when transferring it to thin copper... Here're the results!

It's a lovely process and gives great results! unfortunately, the copper isn't the cheapest thing to come by in craft stores >.<

Oh, and I made an embossed crown repeated image,too! Again, used an image I created in photoshop and printed out for refernce when embossing...

6  Blythe doll silhouette print + gem detail! in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by finestimaginary on: October 18, 2006 02:55:10 AM
Hi guys! I'm pretty new here so i'm basically just posting a few past projects of mine! This project was part of my second year degree work, I was working with a vector image I'd created. I've printed this image on various media, including t-shirts, the work below however is what I made for my course...

Printed onto a shiny surface paper. Unfortunately the screen started to bleed etc. I have a new screen now with better quality fabric...

A close up!

And printing on a different paper... I love how this turned out, actually!

7  Sakura freehand machine embroidery & print in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by finestimaginary on: October 17, 2006 05:39:06 AM
I'm a new craftster, so I thought I'd post some of the work I've been doing...

First off, this was second year degree work but as my course is very much idea's based most of my work is never at the 'completed and suitable for hanging' stage! Although this year things will be different... Here's a few photos!!!

Full view of the embroidery, it's about 1m sqaure

Some close-ups!

I made this in a series of stages. First I freehand screen printed shapes in pink and white onto the fabric, you can still see most of the print. I then loosely glued shapes of white and pink lining fabric onto the printed areas to give a more floaty, petal feel. After this, I began to sew. I tried to give an impression of flower shapes, but more of an impression of what a sakura feel likes as a whole with the freedom of movement. I used a variety of thread colours to achieve this and I think it worked quite well. First attempt at freehand embroidery!
