Sunshine Screenprinting

It's been a beautiful sunny autumn day here today. I don't know why 
but this kind of weather always makes me feel like screenprinting :) 

So, even though I really should have been working on other things 
I've been self-indulgent and printed up some of my Atomic Flower 
design in a fluoro pink on ecru linen/cotton.

Apologies for the photos... I just can't seem to capture the colour 
of the fluoro pink... and the fabric looks a bit grey too I'm afraid.

Anyway, it has been fun but I better get back to other work things now.

Do you find the autumn/winter sunshine inspires you to do things?
I love it because it's less blinding than the summer sun... but of
course it means you cannot get good photos ;)

I have some more bad photos over on Paravent's facebook page 
if you can bear it ;)


  1. It was a beautiful sunny day here in Sydney and I too, went on a screen printng frenzy yesterday... love it :)

    I can just imagine how fab the fluro pink would look too :)

  2. I'm loving this! Good work!!!

  3. Kylie - this is gorgeous. I can't tell from pics, is this a pigment ink or dye?

  4. This is beautiful! I love the bright colour.

    Thank you for popping by my blog :)

  5. Good or bad photos, it still looks really cool. Since you've described the pink, I can picture it. :)

  6. I love it, Kylie...can't beat a bit of impromptu printing ;-)

  7. Looks cool Kylie! Love the colour :) Thanks for the kind words, I am seriously LOVING Melbourne (have wanted to live here for the last four years). I was visiting every six months and then decided it was Brisbane that I should be visiting. Everything has gone amazingly and I am seriously waiting to wake up any minute. I am living with/working for and meeting designers/crafters/musicians and it's AWESOME :) I have no idea where things will take me but I don't care, I feel more alive and inspired and young then I have in the last six years. I read about your 3 Sheets drama, so lame! Mean people are fucking downers but we all get stuck with them at some point. I like your new name! xo

  8. Love the design Kylie. It's quality comes through even with not great photos!
    I have a question for you. Do you think Facebook is good for spreading the word about your work? Have you found it useful? I am doing some research about art- money and marketing and I would love to know what you think.

  9. gorgeous! and i love the paper balls too. you've been very crafty this week. x

  10. Kylie, your work is supergorgeous!
