This week one of my best friends moved into a new beautiful home with her now fiancéeeee, which was really really exciting! Their house is beautiful and big! So, clearly housewarming gifts equals craft time!! Janet and I silkscreened trees onto tea towels and fabric napkins and we think they are AWESOME so I am sharing these fancy photos of them with you.
We printed mostly with black textile ink and experimented with red ink on a white centrepiece and a black tea towel which created different effects. The red on black created a sort of burnt orange look, and the red on white turned out much brighter. We only had a few minor setbacks which involved nervously washing out screens and a poorly-printed napkins but all turned out successfully in the end.
Let's hope Melia and Jake like having people over for dinner! ;)
Passionate for creating, I record my artistic projects and ideas for the joy of sharing with you and challenging myself to continually grow as an artist.
