Experiments in Screen printing

What do you give Miss 20 for her birthday ?




A choice of course !


(screen printed onto fabric and then made into pillowcase. The whole negative /positive thing nearly did my head in. I made the stencils by borrowing an image and then editing and 'posterising' it in Picnik. I'm sure if you spoke photo shop this would be as easy as winking)


yep, totally loving myself sick.

    ReplyDelete
  15. LOVE IT!!!! (and I'm not even that big of a Dr fan. Don't get the wrong idea I have been know to watch The Dr, just not to the extent where I would call myself a fan).
    You really have out done yourself on this one.
    What's next????

  17. That's brilliant! Think I'd snuggle up with the David Tennant one a lot more though.... ♥

  18. Me Likey!
    Awesome work.

    Very cool subject matter - David Tennant is my favourite Dr.

    A spectacular finish - just the right amount of Black and White - it might have nearly done your head in, but it was worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. How good is Picnik? How good are you? Love love love it (them) and you!!!!!! ha!

    ReplyDelete
  20. How fantastic!
    I love the images and the placement. My favourite bit is the rickrack but I fear if I tried to do that it would be all wobbly, like my bias binding fails :-(

    ReplyDelete
  21. Awesome! You should send a picture to the Dr. Who web site. They would get a kick out of it. ;0

    ReplyDelete
  22. These pillows look really cool but I had no idea who the guys were until I read through these comments. I'm still not sure who the second guy is!

    ReplyDelete
  23. You should be too....totally AWESOME!! Well done you have excelled in the screen printing, I bet she loves them :-)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh they are fab :) I think I would choose Mr Tennant every time :) You need to do some of Torchwood (i.e. Captain Jack and Ianto and send them to me stat!) Only kidding......

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love these pillow cases. Great screen prints!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Awesome pillows! We are living in Switzerland and getting BBC, I hadn't watched the Doc since i was a kid but loving the new "modern" doctors. Again super cool pilows, so hard to craft "cool".

  27. You are the best Mum ever!!!
    Can I please have one of Colin Firth as Mr Darcy in Pride & Prejudice ?????

    ReplyDelete
  28. Awesome!! I've just been having a play and getting the right picture to posterise well is quite difficult. You did a great job!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. JODIE CAN I BE YOUR DAUGHTER??!!!

    I will give you $1,000 for a Matt Smith print. If you provide it within five minutes.

    ReplyDelete

  34. WHAT THE HELL TOOK YOU SO LONG? It's a calling, I'm telling you.

    (you even managed to capture the David Tennant furrowed brow and quirk-thing).

    ReplyDelete
  35. LOVE the black ricrac! Did you make the quilt too? Lovely!

    ReplyDelete

  37. I'm loving both you and miss 20 for having such awesome taste! These are seriously brilliant. I did a DT face the hard way: paused during Hamlet's to be or not speech, took a photo, printed in black and white, played around in photo shop, made it negative, printed it big, then meticulously cut it all out to make ONE freezer paper print t-shirt. EGAD! Looks brillo, if I do say so myself, but never had the energy to make another. SIGH. THAT'S why I need to learn to screen print!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. ACK!!!

    TOTALLY awesome pillow cases

    will take a David Tennant please!!

    the different things you produce is mind-boggling, you have a very lucky miss 20

    ReplyDelete
  39. Happy 20th to your DD! Love the pillowcase printing, even if I don't know who the gents are...off to Google!

    ReplyDelete
  40. You really make it hard for the rest of us with teenage kids don't you? Those are quite possibly the coolest present in the history of the world. Hope you made them drool proof?

    ReplyDelete
  41. My son upon witnessing my reaction to your blog post:

    Mama, what's wrong?

    Me: DR. WHO!

    Jaxon: Oh.

    Pretty sad when your 5 year old child finds your obsessions ridiculous!

    AMAZING.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Dr who???? I am seriously not a Dr Who fan. The curly haired dude used to scare me (the 80's Dr Who!) - just don't understand the show really!! Great pillow cases though!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Very special. You never cease to amaze.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love your work. I'm going to have to keep my eyes peeled for a little kit I think.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wait ... What?? You have a 20 year old!! No way!
    Great work on the pillowcases - they look awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  46. OMG, 'Who' would of thought to do this? Oh yup, Jodie of course. Love your work, lucky 20 yo.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hahaha -- I had a different comment -- but then I saw Bell's comment and she's right. What??? a 20 year old??? Definitley No Way LOL!!!

    Love those pillowcases -- especially where you left room for Miss 20 to lay her head down next to them.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Great. Love the quilt they are sitting on as well.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Jod, these are the COOLEST! Just waiting for my Miss to spot them and put in an order. She is a serious Dr Who fan! Alas, my answer will be, "Sorry kiddo, don't do screen printing". Closely followed by, "But Mum, just ask that legend super-clever Ric Rac friend of yours to teach you ..." and so it will go on!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Is she waiting for the T.A.R.D.I.S to appear in her room?

    ReplyDelete
  59. ACK!! I'm loving you sick too!! These are terrific! Who wouldn't love snuggling up to the Doctor each and every night? These are awesome, pat yourself on the back!

  69. Heaven! and thanks for the picnick tips, I'll try it out!

    ReplyDelete
  70. These are amazing!!! I have a friend that is THE biggest David Tennant fan, she even makes crazy-funny fan-girl cartoons starring her and her favourite Dr. Would you consider selling a pillow case? Or even just a screen print on a scrap of fabric I could sew to a pillow case myself? She would just die if she got this as a present. Let me know, I am very very interested :) Hugs, Gabrielle

    ReplyDelete
  71. Indeed. I would love to buy a print for my daughter too! Please let us know if you are able to sell any! Thanks Ros

    ReplyDelete
  72. New career idea perhaps?? No, REALLY, are you willing to make & sell these? I've got a 17 year old who would drool on both these men all night!! Pleeeeeeez ;O)

    ReplyDelete
  73. Awesome! They would make a great gift for me too!

    ReplyDelete
  74. You did with a stencil? You're a genius!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Oh my gosh! I absolutely adore these pillows!!! My two favourite Doctors. Just want to snuggle right up to those pillows. Love Tara

    ReplyDelete
  76. I think my Miss 25 just had a stroke. I need to do this for her so her (Tardis) bedroom would be complete. Even her Bedroom door is the Tardis front.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Heck, this Miss 47 wants a pair, although I'm more for Nine and Ten. The Doctors rock!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Just saw these on FB. Totally love them!!!
