How To: Whip Up a Custom Newsprint-inspired Scarf
Like many of you, I LOVE Spoonflower. Thanks to their dedication to printing affordable, high-quality custom fabric, we can make our mark on any project. Whether it's a skirt, shirt or quilt, it's great to tweak the status quo and create something that's entirely your own.
Right now there's a project on their blog that takes this kind of limitless customization to a new level. Guest blogger Emma Jeffery of Hello Beautiful has created a true heirloom by combining Spoonflower magic with a family treasure - the paper printed the day her mother was born.
In Jeffery's hands the humble newspaper turns into a stunning source of pure Pop Art inspiration. Even better, she shows how she used a free web-based photo-editor - Google's Picasa - to compose her new image. No Photoshop? No problem!
Stuck for source material? Dover Books offers a wide range of books of old-school letterfaces and hilariously kitschy clip art - and their wares are sold worldwide.
