Finally, here are some of my very own designs for you to have a squizz at. These were for the “contemporary Toile de Jouy” project at school. (Now do you get my clever french pun for a subject line?!) Jouy is short for Jouy-en-Josas which is a place that made the first toiles. Toiles are textile designs that comprise of scenes or vignettes.
So there’s your history lesson. If you look closely you will see each vignette that makes up my toile story and you will see that it’s about the zombie apocalypse. Tacky, yes but I had to get the zombie thing out of my system, you understand. Besides, it’s a real threat to our future as far as I’m concerned. You only need walk the streets of any major city to see the effects starting take hold…
Below that are the coordinates that we had to design. The brief consisted of two ogee based designs and two diamond based.
I was pretty chuffed with myself for finishing this project. Hope you will agree!
