So I finally got to bust the Yudu out today. It's been awhile since I have made a project with it. I have been meaning to make this Sue Sylvester shirt for awhile now. I love GLEE, one of my favorite shows. I came up with this idea to do this shirt right after the Madonna episode aired. But like many project ideas I forgot about it (I really should keep a journal). But we watched the Emmy's Sunday night and the opening GLEE number was amazing. It made me remember my idea for this shirt and I thought this will definitely be my next project.
To get the image I took a screenshot from the YouTube vid of Sue Sylvester doing the Vogue number. I tweaked the image in Photoshop Elements. Trying to create a half-tone image. Most of the tutorials on how to do this were for the full version of Photoshop (which I would love but no way can afford). But I did find a tutorial that helps create this effect using PSE. Basically what I did was:
Choose the file and then changed it to greyscale using Image > Mode > Greyscale
Then I altered it into a type of half-tone using Filter > Sketch > Halftone Pattern
Once in this option I played around with the size, contrast and pattern till I got what I liked.
Once the image was edited to the way I liked it. I preformed the basic steps to make a screen, expose, and screen print. I really love how this came out and can't wait to wear it.
Here's a light canvas bag I had laying around that I put the image on also
And here's the shirt on the platen.
