New colours and my latest prints ...

So it was my last day of printing last week, it has been a bit of an effort travelling back to Manchester to print each time but I am really pleased with what I have managed to do. Above are some details of my fabrics that will be made into canvases and others that will be used to make smaller pieces. I have been using some lighter colours but my work still has a similar industrial feel to it. I have recieved my frames in the post today so will be busy making my canvases in the next few weeks. All this work is for a gallery exhibition I have been asked to do in the summer. So for me I am super organised this time :)

Printing so far.....

This week I have finally been able to print again... although it is a bit of a trek, have to go back to Manchester to do it. But it is worth it as I love printing. I have been printing on large pieces of canvas which will be stretched onto wooden frames later to make art pieces. I have an exhibition coming up in the summer and this is the only time I have free to print (as I will be leaving the country soon... eek!) So these pictures show the beginning stages and the print table I use.
Yesterday I was printing next to a twitter friend :) so was nice to finally meet Louise of Lovelittle
She was printing some lovely wrapping paper for some upcoming fairs. Her work is fab!
