Royal wedding Street Party!

To celebrate William and Kate’s wedding, my road had a street party which was absolutely amazing, it was much better then I thought it would’ve been. It was such a wonderful atmosphere, the food was great, the people were fun and friendly and it was just a great chance to meet people and to join in the celebrations.

Here some of ¬†the photos of the day ūüėÄ

The cakes were so delicious

Fun games that everyone got involved in.

I’m still around

Lovely readers, I have not forgotten about this blog. I’m just really busy writing my essay right now so I’m rarely blogging, but don’t worry because from May 3rd I will be able to continue this blog fully with no distractions.

Until then,

I really should have planned this earlier, because the photography suite is fully booked right now so that means I have to wait until the 3rd of may to put my name down to use it. I’m a bit¬†disappointed¬†but this will give me lots of time to just focus on my essay and my family¬†photograph¬†project.

I’m going to have my t-shirts ready for then, which I’m going to start tomorrow in the screen printing room. I went there yesterday and she told me the price of the screen was around ¬£3. The basic paints are free which is an extra bonus however she did say that some colours are not good on dark t-shirts. I would have to pay for some better paint which I think was ¬£1.20 for 100g.

Screen printing

I went to a printing shop yesterday to find out the prices for the printed t-shirts. The man told me that the print has to be no bigger then A4 in size and costs £7. This put me off a bit because although my prints are not that big, it limits me to what I need to do. I have to supply my own t-shirts, which is not a problem. These will be coming straight from Primark.

After I left the shop, it instantly occurred to me to use a screen print to print my t-shirts. I’ve done screen printing before and it comes out great. The way the images are printed onto t-shirts (in the shop I visited yesterday) is by ironing it on, so I personally would prefer them to be screen printed.

I can do this at my University which is great. The last time I did this was at an art college for my foundation degree, and the only thing I needed to pay for was the screen. If this is the same then it works out cheaper and I can print my t-shirts in different sizes, for a variety of people to try on.
