I've been wanting to try screen printing for an awfully long time but haven't due to the cost of setting up. Last year I was really inspired after reading Lena Corwin's Printing by Hand and decided to give freezer paper a try. I didn't get far. I think my designs were to intricate for a beginner and my head wasn't in the right place.
Enter the new year and my new sense of trying to fulfill my creative inspirations! I've been very busy drawing designs, cutting (love you Xacto knife!) and experimenting with printing. I've been collecting a lot of folliage from the garden and various trees to take impressions from.
I bought some linen and will see what I can come up with!
There is something so special about hand printed fabric, don't you think?
And I completed my first ever cross stitch! It has now joined the pile of other stitcheries that live in hope of being framed one day.
Happy, sunshiney, creative day to you all!
