It's already been another month on the e-course I'm taking!! Time flies!!
Between the week we got our theme and the week we found out we were to design for fabric, I tried my hand at gelatine printing, so I used some offcuts to make this pattern. I just love these colours, don't you?
From seeing the work from last month, I knew I wanted to try and create a coordinating collection for this project. So I learned how to index colours in Photoshop, and chose just 8 colours from the design above, and ended up choosing one more colour for the next design.
This one is a basic half drop repeat.
As there was only 3 icons, I really wanted to try incorporating more imagery, but that's easier said than done!! I ended up creating a little kitchen scene, with shelves and a dresser. The jelly theme is much less obvious, but there is still signs of it. Again I changed all the colours from the original painting to match the 2 other designs. I find reducing colours quite fun, even though the look of the piece changes drastically from the original!
In the end I only submitted one design, as the thumbnail in the class gallery is quite small, so I'm hoping that by only having the last design it's as visible as possible!
