New designs

A selection of my designs, what do you think? do they represent the elves in Lord of the rings?

A little elvish fun

I've ran out of vine photos to work from and seeing as though I was focusing on the Elves for my first fabric I had a look at some jewellery in an elven style and had a go at some drawings.  I'm so pleased with how they've turned out, just need to figure out how to make a fabric from the motifs that will fit in with the fashion.  I'm not sure people would wear clothes with these prints on, but I'm always up for a challenge....

What do you think? Is it possible to use such designs in todays fashion, or am I out of my league?

I also had a look at plaiting and knotting, need to get my hands on some good quality yarns, but drawing them is quite interesting, because I havn't seen it done before.

The Epic journey that is my new project.....

So here it is, the beginning of this terms project.

As you know from my previous post I'm basing it on Lord of the Rings (our theme is journeys) and I've started off with just some simple drawings that link in with the elves.  I'm going to base at least one of the end pieces on Rivendell (where the elves live for those of you who havn't seen the film).

This is only the beginning so things aren't mind blowing yet, but i'll keep you posted on my progress.

For some reason the middle two photos wont turn the right way....sorry about that
You get the idea though
