Texprint Nomination!

Ooh, get me! A handful of 3rd year printers (Wai Ting [Trelisa] Ho,Leigh Spencer & Helen Proudlock) have been nominated for the Texprint graduate award which is SO exciting!  I've also created a new Artsthread portfolio - http://artsthread.com/p/ingridhudson if you'd care to take a peek.
Back to college for more print room mayhem - just when we thought we could kick back for a spell to gather energy before the degree show.
I'm hoping to get down to Brizzle to start work on my new house which I hope will become ingprinting HQ his summer.

So much to do.  Thank goodness the sun hasn't made an appearance yet or I'd be tempted outside...

Last week!!!!

Well this year has passed in the blink of an eye and I can't believe final submission is exactly 1 week from now! Eeek!!
I've been doing battle with my repeat layouts for 2 and a half metre lengths of silk and I'm fit to freak out.
To mellow out and regain composure I've taken to the gentlewomanly art of needlework & embellished my passionflowers with red glass beads.  Nothing like making like a Victorian lady for a few hours to subdue the aggressive side of one's personality (arf arf).

Also I thought I'd show my fabulous printing blocks.  These provided backgrounds for drawing sheets and digital prints (haven't seen the results of these yet).  They're a little crude but I love a bit of texture within my work and they certainly provide that.  I got a little woozy from the glue gun whilst I was making these and it'll probably show in my designs.
