Exciting Day - Screen Printing

Yesterday, I had the most amazing day learning from Saffron Craig how to screen print my own fabric. I started the day with no expectations and no ideas of what I was going to do.

Saffron, started, by showing us a simple design, and then we all took turns at working our technique, I love how this fabric, morphed in colour with each person's addition of a colour change on the same screen, the colours all just blended so well.

But within very little time at all, I had sketched this little design, although I needed Saffron's assistance to get my head around the negative and positive areas and less details to be able to create with it.

I soon was on a roll, just doing one of designs, with certain projects in mind (wink wink)

Then I was off and running with my whole metre of my design, I am just drooling over it, I love it so much and can't believe I DID IT!!!





 Watch this space, for more one of designs by me, as I am armed now with my own tools and inks to create at whim.

    1. Thanks Sophie, I am just a little bit excited about them!! I really had a great time. I love Saffron's kookaburra print fabric, and she had some for sale, but I forgot to get some till I got home. I'll have to get it online now.

      Her fabrics are wonderful and it is so nice to see how she started out.
