Illustrative Practices Module

I had my hand in for my illustrative practices module today which was all of my editorial stuff from before Christmas and all of my 'make to sell' stuff that I've been posting recently. Here is an snapshot of my submission on work today. It's a really nice feeling to have handed it in but it's only one of four modules that we're currently working on with a new one starting tomorrow and another new one starting in a couple of weeks time- eeeek, busy busy busy!!

Sneak peak at my printed vinyl tape :-)

I'm having one of my designs printed onto packaging tape which is something that I've wanted to do for ages. It's not quite ready yet there were a few faults with the first print run and it is in the process of being reprinted. I'm very excited about getting the final version :-)

Tote Bag

I used the material that I had printed up to make a tote bag. I am no needle work genius and it took me most of an afternoon to make but I am pleased with the end result- it is quite exciting seeing my design on something practical like this :-)

My design printed on to fabric :-)

As part of my recent, illustrative practices module I had one of my designs printed on to fabric. It was done using the digital mimaki printer that we now have in college. It is really nice to see my design applied in a different way but it wasn't cheap so it's probably not something that I could produce on a regular basis!

Squirrel Giftwrap

This is one of my patterns that I have used as a design for gift wrap. Currently it is just printed onto A3 printer paper so could probably benefit from being printed onto something bigger and thinner. Haven't come up with a viable, affordable solution as of yet though. It does work if you only want to wrap up something fairly small though, as you can see from the photos above.
