A while ago I thought that it would be fun to be able to print a map of the world onto fabric. I drew one and had it made into a thermofax screen, which arrived last week, together with my new calligram designs. I made a red-on-white test print that looked great (or so I thought), so I stretched it in a hoop.
Then I did another screenprinting session and had fun experimenting with different colours ink…
I love this print! (and so did my youngest son – he wants it printed on a green shirt)
The World Map Print is also available now as a fabric design in six different colour combinations at Spoonflower
As always; if you would like to have one of my designs printed in a different colourway (or on a t-shirt in a different size), please send me an email (info at lindarobertus.com). I am happy to do custom orders!
I hope you had a lovely time during the holidays with your loved ones!
I spent two very relaxed weeks with my family at the beach and am now feeling full of energy and creativity :-).
The note in the photo above was pinned to a pole in Kingscliff, NSW – not a bad motto for 2013!
But I like this one even better… The Coffee Quote on Burlap, Stretched in a Hoop, is the latest item in my burlap collection. This one is now for sale on Etsy, with more quotes to follow, as well as a personalized one, where you can choose your own words. What would you like to see printed on the burlap?
This Sunday, the 25th of November, Blue Jacaranda will be at Inspired, a Shopping and Fundraising Event created by Brisbane artist Kylie Farrelly. This week I have been busy making stock, such as this Chalk Cloth Bunting. The backside is made from laminated fabric, so it can be used indoors and outdoors.
This Oilcloth Bunting is also very suitable for garden parties:
Buntings look so good like this:
Yesterday I did a big screen printing session.
Today I made the prints into Art Cards, ACEO and stretched them in hoops:
Inspired is at 30 Florence Street, Teneriffe (Brisbane) from 3 until 6pm.
