Hey there my name is Lou Robertson. I am very happy and excited to have my first post on the Bernina blog as Bernina Software Ambassador.
Firstly, I am a mother of 2 gorgeous kids and wife to one of the best sewing machine tech’s here in Brisbane Australia. I own an embroidery business (Anything Embroidered) where I love to do all types of different digitizing & embroidery requests for my clients.
Recently, I have been a proud owner of the NEW Bernina Embroidery software DesignerPlus V8 and wanted to share a great modern design / project that has hit the tattoo industry by storm! The original digital artwork was created by Miyume this is a Trash Polka style tattoo. Trash Polka is a style of tattoo art that began at Buena Vista Tattoo Club in Würzburg, Germany by Simone Plaff and Volko Merschky. The style resembles a combination of fine art of “realism and trash; the nature and the abstract; technology and humanity; past, present, and future.
With the new BERNINA DesignerPlus V8 Software. I have created a mixture of PhotoStitch and custom fancy fills to show off the features of this design. I have used the new colour photo stitch feature to get the right subtle blend of colours without it standing out too much so that the main feature of Fancy Fill would stand out more than the rest of the design giving an abstract effect. If you look at the horns closely you can see I used a fancy fill to give it that bone effect by changing the stitch angle of the fill. I used the closed object feature and statin stitch to do the lips and animal print part of the design.
I found the new BERNINA DesignerPlus V8 Software very user friendly and easy to navigate around with great menu layouts, shortcuts with simple icons for feature identification and excellent Integrated Design Library. I cannot wait to get creative with new modern day designs to suit everyone’s taste from dark and gothic to bright and pretty.
