It's been a hellava week this week. One that can be basically be described as a bit of a post celebration blur.
I'll post about the amazing weekend we had at another time, when I can put into words what we all went through and when I've picked myself up off the floor from exhaustion.
I don't remember Sam's flooring me quite so much, but I think that's a lot to do with us being out of routine this week with the extra Bank Holidays and Half Term. If we had been back to routine the next day we would have had no choice but to get on with it.
We spent most of this week sleeping late, saying farewell to visiting family and friends and generally living in the moment.
By the time Matthew went back to work yesterday we were finding it tricky to get out of our slump.
I dived into the cellar to get some printing done for some orders that were piling up and as is my normal trick started playing around with an idea that had been forming in amongst the blur.
As you know i normally print in colour on white fabric but wanted to give printing on some colours a go.
This ended up with me printing on a fair few of my solids and rather liking where it was going. The main reason behind this was the need to order more magnets and deciding that perhaps they would look better with more colour.
I've put up a couple of pics here to get a feel of the difference.
What do you reckon? Printing on solids or printing on white?
I'm rather liking how the solids look coupled with other fabrics. The design seems to stand out better, particularly with the blues, but on the other hand the postage stamp block seems to work with the print on white.
Maybe I'm too tired this week to make a decision or maybe there is a place for both.
Do you have an opinion? Would you like to see more designs on a coloured background?
Would love to know what you think. You are probably less tired than I am...unless of course you are recuperating from FQR...
