Above is Jazz Cat. Not pictured – Lamby, Owl Babies, Milly Mandrill, Bouncy B’day Alien, Sowwy Rooster, Chick and Spidey.

Grande Dame Sportswear, Houseware and More!

Ladies & Gentleman! I am very excited to debut my line of printed EVERYTHING! Well pretty much everything – Ha!

For ages I have seen various sites where you can have your designs printed on pillow or iphone cases, but I wasn’t interested in either.

Then one day I started thinking – I would like to make my own leggings – and through the magic of google I found the site RageOn. Not only do they print on leggings, but drawstring pants, boxers, yoga pants, socks, high tops, low tops, sweatshirts, tanks, dresses, hoodies, duvet covers, towels, blankets, t shirts and so much more!

And it’s totally affordable! Prices start at $8 for ankle socks and go up to $100 for a Duvet cover! Wow! Unlike fast fashion, where they make tons of articles of clothing – this is made to order, so no waste! Yay!

It’s produced in the States and Eastern Europe. And it’s a 25 day turn around.
There are so many items – literally something for everyone and I want one of everything! Seriously dying!

OMG! WANT! No – NEED! So click any of the gifs or here to get to my shop. At first you see a series of hoodies, if you click on any, at the bottom of each pic you can scroll through all the different products!

Everything looks SO LUSH! It was difficult to choose what images to make gifs of. These are just a few of my faves, but there are dresses, shower curtains – even fleece blankets! Tons of items! So Perfect for Xmas! So get ordering so I can get some outfits PLEEZE! Happy Shopping! oxo gd

Silk Screen Overdrive!!!

allhcprints Well I just completed my 8th class of Silk Screening at East Sussex Coast College & I have to admit, I am astonished by how much I have produced. I really didn’t think I would get all my ideas done in time, but I’ve finished early & have 2 more classes left!!! So I am planning another piece!! Yay! Next one – 4 color!!!
I did about 25 diff versions of Hire Car, and about 30 of Black Leather. In fact the prints are so big, I had to cut & paste the images so I could fit them all in one!!
massiveprimt This is going to be a one off, that I hopefully fill in with embroidery, but if that fails, I shall paint it and stretch it on a frame. The pic above and the Black Leather prints, were so massive!! 30″ x 40″ & 20″ x 24″!!! I had to do them with my instructor as they took 2 people to pull the squeegee!! But, more is more! That’s my motto! I really thought I would be rubbish at this. I even told my wonderful instructor Myles Calvert – “do you know I Love Lucy? That’s me!” I pictured myself failing miserably and sabotaging everything, but I think I’m getting the hang of it!! And can’t wait for the next class!!

I’m still going through the editions, but will have them up on my etsy shop soon! In the mean time Ink-d Gallery has some up for sale… Check em out!! More soon! oxo gd
