Well hello all and great to be back.
Been a bit of a busy time over the last few weeks I have to say.
I am trying to start a Sewing Group in our Village, and it seems to have gone
down a storm. Which is good. Had our first meeting last week to see
what everyone wishes to do.
Starting for "real" end of the month.
Thought I would have a play with screen printing and using my Screen Sensation
kits both big and small have made a variety of items which I hope
people will like.
Went shopping to day to buy candles, has a delivery of calico bags this week, and got the
card stock to make the cards.
Here are a few tips along the way.
Prime the screens first before you do the actual print on the bag, (had to wash one as I was not happy with it)
Discover the bags shrink in the wash so wash them all and iron flat before you start.
Use a Gelli press to print onto the candles works a treat (well it did for me)
Take a print off the Gelli press onto card stock to use up the ink.
Remember taking a print off the gelli press makes the picture in reverse.
Try not to get too messy - like I do.
And dont let the hubby or partner see you washing your screens in the sink.
Well here are the photos for you to look at and I will report back as to what people think
Have made a bigger candle print which has worked well.
Have fun and hope to see you again with some more finished projects tomorrow or the next day.
Cards still need to be made :)
All the best
