I was excited to receive my first digitally printed fabric last week. I had thought of using ‘Fingerprint’, Laura Kempshall’s business for some time, but could never find the template to upload a photo, when I did the process was straight forward. It only took a week to arrive and was nicely wrapped with tissue using their fingerprint logo.
I have made two cushions with the fat quarters and another with a fabric which I block printed.
The tree image started with doodles of Klimt’s patterns, progressed to a journal, a print block and then to a basic repeat design.
I have to thank Margaret Applin for getting me started; if you take a look at her blog you will see how she successfully develops her design work into digital patterns.
